I am a B (Pharm) graduate working with Aurobindo Pharma Ltd at Visakhapatnam since December 2017.
Around 11th of September 2018, I developed high fever and severe head ache. I was admitted for 10 days to RK Hospital at Visakhapatnam. At that time from 11th September upto 20th September I had to undergo a CBC,QBC and dengue check Test daily.
The result of Dengue check and the CBC blood test was dengue positive and Pancytopenia. (a condition in which all blood components keep on decreasing).
I had to undergo a CBC and platelet blood Test daily.
It was noticed that my blood count was continuously falling. As a result my first Bone Marrow Test was carried out on 28th September 2018; the resulting report dtd 4th October 2018 suggested the possibility of acute Leukaemia.
The hospital also suggested to carry out tests for IHC markers for confirmation.
On receiving this information, I contacted my seniors at my work place, with whom I explored various possibilities in Visakhapatnam itself such ESIC etc. Everyone expressed their inability to provide me with treatment.
Finally, I was then referred to CMC Vellore or Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai. As my brother works in Mumbai, I came to Mumbai on 15th October 18.
My first visit to Tata Memorial Hospital Parel was on 15th October, where the various test reports were reviewed, and I was asked to carry my blood test such as CBC,MDC,MPO,RFT,LFT,SE,Ca and Po,LDH, Bone Marrow/Peripheral Blood-Morphology,Surface markers, Cytogenetics(420,471,303),Molecular studies, Biopsy, HIV, HbsAg, AntiHCV, HbclgG, Coagulation profile at Tata Memorial Hospital.
The Heamogram blood tests were carried out repeatedly on 17th, 22nd, 19th, 22nd of October and lastly on 1st of November. Bone Marrow tests were carried out on 22nd & 25th of October 2018.
On the 30th of October, the result of the blood test, The flow and Biopsy on 30th October confirmed Compatible with Aplastic Anaemia.
Thereafter I have made several visits to Tata Memorial Parel, KEM Hospital, and finally ACTREC, Kharghar on 6th November 2018. I have to undergo a bone marrow transplant to have any chances at a normal life.
I belong to a very poor family, and am unable to meet even the basic expenses of the ongoing tests and treatment. It is my understanding from various
counselors and doctors that this amount could be anywhere between Rs 25-30 lakhs.
It is my earnest and humble request to all the people reading this to kindly assist me to meet my expenses for the treatment and subsequent rehabilitation.
I look forward to your positive response to my plea of help.
