My Mom stays in Bhagalpur Bihar. Initially, she had recursive complaint of stomach ache, body weakness, fever from last 2 months onwards. Therefore I got her here in bangalore for preliminary checkup. We took an appointment with Dr. Maruthesh Gowda at Koshys hospital in Ramamurthy Nagar, Bengaluru on 20th August 2019.
In the preliminary stage, she was diagnosed with severe Jaundice. As per Dr. Maruthesh Gowda’s prescription, her bile duct needed to be operated, reason being severe blockage in the bile duct making an interference for regular bile juice secretion. My Mother has been already operated for opening the blocked bile duct in the same hospital mentioned above.
With no improvisation in health condition, doctor suggested for further diagnosis which reported Inflammation in Bile duct. Post which the doctor recommended for certain medical tests such as Cytology and many more, please check attachments. which reported to be as Cancer stage 3. This is a critical stage as per doctor’s prescription, so we are being referred to AIIMS, New Delhi. All further operation and medications will be done at AIIMS, New Delhi. The entire medical process at Koshys hospital has accounted for Rs.1,50,000 approx.
Currently, she is undergoing treatment at AIIMS, New Delhi as well a second opinion is been taken from Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, New Delhi . Doctor at AIMS has prescribed for an urgent operation followed by Chemotherapy. Operating the cancer would cost around Rs. 4,50,000 and Chemotherapy would cost around Rs. 1,50,000 considering Rs. 30,000 each time total being 5 times of Chemo. A total sum of Rs. 10,00,000 is required as soon as possible. The operation would be carried out as soon as the Jaundice level reduces and inflammation doesn’t reach the lungs.We have now shifted her to Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai for better treatment
A very important mention is, as per Doctors ‘It’s not very late, this can be cured if and when operated at the earliest’. However, I’m running between the hospitals and doctors to take the best action as soon as possible. With that being said, this comes up with a huge cost associated. Which inturn holds back my family to take a quick decision. Above mentioned cost are just as per my knowledge that I have gained in last few days. We know for a fact that cancer medications and process costs a family upto a minimum of 12-15 Lakhs. I’m in deep need of financial assistance. Trying my left and right to collect some financial aid.
