Till 2012, Sujatha was leading a normal life with her husband and two young daughters.
In 2012, Sujatha had typhoid and admitted in a private hospital in Kodigehalli, Bangalore. After discharge from the hospital she was not able to pass the urine and her lower abdomen was swollen.
Her Husband rushed her to the nearby clinic and she was referred to the nursing home at Sanjaynagar. Doctor informed that she is losing sense in her left leg, hence for the immediate treatment referred her to Vikram hospital. Because of the financial constraints, husband taken her to Nimhan’s Hospital. She was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis and lost sense in both the legs. Doctor informed that recovery is slow with this medical condition and she received 3 months of care in Nimhans.
Sujatha continued to be dependent on family members for her routine work at home. She was completely bedridden and had to be attended for every single task.
Her husband lost his salaried job due to repeated leaves. During this difficult situation her elder sister who is widow extended support to the family by looking after Sujatha and her daughter’s education.
Recently due to severe back pain elder sister could not extend her support to Sujatha’s family. At this juncture Sujatha’s husband found difficult to manage his wife and two young daughters who are 8 years and 11 years.
Hence the option left out with them was to shift Sujatha to the rehabilitation center such that she would receive round the clock care. He admitted her in Snehadan, Bangalore.
The expense of her treatment is coming up to Rs. 20,000/- per month [care center charges 15,000/- and treatment and Doctor charges around Rs.5000/-]. Her family is struggling to bear these expenses.
