My father was diagnosed with acute necrotising pancreatitis early in February 2020 due to which he was unable to work and did not get any salary. He was in Saudi Arabia, where he was diagnosed first, and was admitted twice in ICU. So we asked him to return to India for further treatment.
The quarantine period of 28 days issued for him made his disease move into the critical stage. After admitting him at Caritas Hospital, where he was admitted in MICU for 3 weeks and was still not able to recover. After being there for 1 more week, my mother had exhausted all her financial savings and we had no money to pay for my college fees and my brothers school fees. There it costed us 8 lakhs excluding my fathers scan costs. My mother single handedly was behing all of this and no one is there to help us to run errand. The doctors asked us to trasfer my father to a different hospital, as the gastro surgeon is not ready and is not confident enough to do the surgery on my father. So the consultant asked us to move my father to a better hospital, as he needs his surgery immediately or else he may fall into more critically ill stage.
So we moved here at Aster Medicity, Kochi, Kerala. We knew this is hospital is out our league and is impossible to afford by my mother and us. But no other hospitals were accepting to do his surgery at his prior conditions. After we admitted my father here at Aster, the hospital authorities said it would cost atleast 4,00,000 INR for his surgery only. Since he is nutritionally critical, his medicine, Albumin costs 6000rs alone, which is given everyday 2 twice or thrice and another medicine which costs 4,560 every day for his nutrition.
This is a stage of life, I or my younger brother or my mother never expected in our lives. But is has happened, what ever our dad has done for us, we are struggling to return it to him and help his from this condition.
I ask anyone, anyone to help us to help him get out of this disease.No contibution is small; my father is fighting for this as much as he can, please help us !
