My name is Smrutirekha Nayak, fundraising for my husband who has been battling in ICU since 5th May , just 4 days after being diagnosed with deadly Covid-19.The Covid has badly affected his lungs and the doctors at Kalinga Hospital have been working hard to improve his condition.
Over the last one month, there have been several ups and downs in his health, which has created panic situations for the whole family. Manas, lost his Father on 3rd June after a lengthy hospitalization of since 1st week of February.
As of last week, the treating doctors had suggested exploring the “Lung Transplant” option. In the last couple of days, we have consulted two other renowned pulmonologists from Bangalore. There is a divided opinion on the treatment path. At present the “Lung Transplant” option is being put ON-HOLD for a week. The doctors will continue to observe his situation for one more week and take a call towards the end of this week. Manas’s condition is improving and stable (as of now dated 6.6.21) with 12 Lit. Oxygen and with NIV. Let us all pray to the Almighty for speedy recovery and we hope the option of Lung transplantation does not arise.
We are extremely grateful to you ‘All’ for all your contribution and prayer. Currently as the transplant option is ON-HOLD, we appeal to you all not to contribute further till a final decision is made on the treatment option. We are not currently closing this campaign but keeping this on hold.
Family of Manas Pradhan
