Covid pandemic came as disaster for such patients for whom all hospitals were closed and further treatment or transplant was delayed for almost 2 years and condition getting worse day by day. Undergoing 3 time dialysis and multiple diagnosis during last year has exhausted him financially and mentally.
Now, luckily he got appointment in Rabindranath Tagore International Institute Of Cardiac Sciences, Kolkata for transplant and undergoing multiple tests. The total cost of transplant and post recovering treatments would cost around 10,00,000 to 15,00,000 INR. In most of these hospitals, kidney transplant is a packaged procedure and it would include donor surgery and transplant surgery both, surgeon fees, room rent for both donor & patient, drugs and consumable, food and support staff costs.
Follow up medical costs post surgery typically range from INR 10,000 - 15,000 per month. This does not include ongoing costs of dialysis to stay alive and functioning. Each dialysis costs INR 1000 - 2,500 and it should be carried out three times in the week.
So many of you have reached out asking how you can help this wonderful man, outside of your prayers.
Avinash's road ahead is long, and very expensive. His weight has reduced from 68 Kgs (150 lbs) to 43 Kgs (94lbs) in 10 months. He has pretty much sold all that could be sold. His health condition is deteriorating day by day and the doctor has advised to go for surgery immediately. This time his wife will be the donor and is a match.
Supporting Avinash with whatever you can give and help relieve the financial burden would be greatly appreciated. With financial assistance, Avinash and his family can focus on his surgery to save his life and getting healthy and strong.
