After six operations, Vilma cannot not hold tears of joy
The 46-year-old woman named Vilma learned about the tumor unexpectedly. “In 2012, the doctor of the Kaunas Clinic of Ear, Nose and Throat Diseases, Dr. Nora Šiupšinskienė operated my daughter due to snoring. At the same time, doctors asked why it is difficult for me to breathe through the nose. I received a referral from a family doctor and signed up for a consultation with a specific other doctor,” the woman told the story.
