"He is a brave boy and it is only because of his will to live and to do something worthwhile out of his life which keeps him fighting his Medical Problem ! We will do everything, to help him recover and make him stand on his own feet” said 21-year-old Aniket's uncle Shri Gajanan Patrikar who is looking after his treatment at present.
Aniket Patrikar, a 21 year old young boy, complained about irregular and painful Urine (decreased stream of urine , sense of incomplete voiding), high fever in the month of November 2017. After doing a medical check-up in Nagpur, the doctors diagnosed that Aniket ’s both the kidneys have failed and requires removal of both the kidneys while one of his kidney needs to be transplanted with a matching one.
Aniket has had a medical issue since his birth and was not able to control his urine while he was growing up. An investigation and treatment (PU Valves fulguration) done 16 years back (in 2002), when Aniket was only 5 year old did solve the problem temporarily but the doctors missed the bigger issue. One of his (right) kidney was small and had failed while the other kidney was functional.
Based on current investigation by the doctors, it was concluded that the treatment done 16 years back was insufficient.
A future in question
Ever since his condition became critical, in December 2017, Aniket who studies in B.COM 2nd year in Arts and Commerce (kalawanijya) College in a Tehsil Saunsar (District Chindwara, Madhya Pradesh) had to stop his studies and move with his family to his Uncle’s place in Nagpur as the Dialysis facility to keep Aniket alive while his both kidney’s had failed is not available in his home town Saunsar.
Only Son of Parents working on daily wages shaken to the core
Aniket has been on Dialysis since December 2017 with a weekly expenditure (Dialysis 3 times a week) of nearly Rs. 11,000 including Medicines, Injections, Tests and Dialysis cost.
His father Shri Sanjay Patrikar works in Nagarpalika, Saunsar on daily wages with a cumulative monthly Salary of Rs. 6,900 and his mother Smt. Archana Patrikar is a house wife. They have already exhausted all their savings and support provided by his close relatives. They have already spent more than Rs. 2, 25, 000 since last 5 months.
Life at Risk
As a next step, Aniket has been advised to undergo a Kidney Transplant operation. After multiple tests, his mother Archana Patrikar’s Kidney has been found matching and she has come forward to donate one of her kidney's to her only son in order to save his life.
The Wokhardt Hospital, Nagpur gave an estimate of Rs. 8,60,000 while Government Medical College and Super Speciality Hospital, Nagpur has provided an estimate of Rs. 2, 50,000 for the operation and has further estimated minimum monthly expenditure of Rs.10,000+ on medicines for the rest of his life.
His Uncle Gajanan Patrikar along with his parents have decided to do the operation at the Government Medical College and Super Specialty Hospital, Nagpur. Since Aniket is still studying and his parents are not in a position to manage all these expenditure, he will at least need to be supported for the time till he is able to stand on his feet’s and earn for himself and his family.
After calculating the costs that Aniket and his family will have to bear only on his medical needs it has come down to Rs. 6,00,000.
