My dad is a contractor with west bengal state electricity board. He has been a diabetic patient for the last 12 years and has to be injected with regular dosages of insulin to keep the condition under check. He has been having heart related ailments from 2010 for which he had encountered a heart attack in 2017 and recovered post a coronary angioplasty. Post which he started refocusing on his regular work. But now due to an evil twist of fate he is faced with a bigger hurdle where doctors have advised for a bypass surgery at the earliest. This involves a blockage in the main aorta which can be operated only when his pulse and sugar levels are normalized. It was the 19th of March when he encountered the heart attack and was immediately admitted in P.K Saha Hospital. He was kept in the ICU for 5 days post which there was some stability in his condition. Due to non availability of further medical facilities in his native place an angiography couldn't be performed to know about the amount of blockage in his heart. We decided to take a chance and took him to Kolkata for further treatment.He was admitted in Apollo Glenegales under the supervision of Dr Suvra Banerjee. On the advise of the doctor an echo cardiography and angiography was performed, post which the doctor suggested on a bypass surgery at the earliest which will cost around 8 lacs. But because of his pre existing diseases and fluctuating sugar levels the doctors have not managed to stabilize the pulse and further proceed with the operation. It has been almost 4 days but still the patient couldnt be operated . In the midst of it the medical bills have already crossed 4 lacs. Owing to the previous treatment expenses our family's economic resources have been completely drained and we have already over stretched our selves
In this age of medical advancement, cant we put our efforts together to help my dad overcome this battle. We shall be forever indebted if this platform can be used to appeal to the mass for their help in raising this amount.
