My Father, Aroul, 60 years old, was diagnosed with Liver Cirrhosis, a condition in which the liver does not function properly due to long term damage. It involves loss of liver cells and irreversible scarring of liver.
His health condition is rapidly deteriorating despite being on an aggressive medication. We have consulted doctors, and they have strongly recommended to undergo Liver Transplant at the earliest, the only option to prolong his life. He is currently undergoing treatment at Chennai hospital.
My brother is organ donor. He has already undergone the pre-transplant assessment tests and got clearances from multi-disciplinary team of doctors. The entire procedure i.e transplantation surgery to recovery is expected to last several months, depending on the patient’s condition and post-operative care.
The expected cost break-up for the total procedure is as follows:
1. Pre-transplant Assessment: (300,000/-) (3 Lakhs)
This involves a detailed assessment conducted by a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, to ensure her fitness to undergo Liver Transplantation surgery.
2. Liver Transplant Surgery: Rs. 25,00,000/-(25 Lakhs)
The transplant surgery will be done in rela Hospitals in chennai .
3. Post Operation Rehabilitation, Recovery, Follow-ups:
Post transplant involves stay in the transplantation for 10-12 days. Post-op require extended stays in the hospital and multiple tests even after discharge from the hospital for few months.
We have been spending huge amounts for the past 4 months for his treatment, expensive medication and pre-transplant assessment tests, at multiple hospitals. We have exhausted all our savings for his treatment till now and would need external help to handle this difficult situation.
We urge everyone of you to come forward and help us raise the required amount. Any contributions from your end have the power to offer a new lease of life for my father With the financing of the transplant taken care of, my family will have one less reason to worry and we can focus all our efforts in ensuring the best medical care for him.
