Dr.Shubham Pate, intern doctor at Sassoon hospital, Pune currently fighting with chronic mucormycosis infection! To tell my history in brief, I had contacted Covid infection during May month and was admitted in hospital for covid pneumonia! After recovering I joined internship and continued for few months, when suddenly I experienced headache, toothache, dizziness and cheekbone numbness at the end of July.
The symptoms persisted and finally in october, a doctor in nashik advised mri-ct & biopsy which came out to be postive for mucor.
I underwent debridement surgery and postop amphotericin course. It was expected that the symptoms subside but instead it aggrevated.
One of the mds surgeon advised a 3rd surgery but now my family has been financially drained. So finally now I have been advised course of Cresemba medicines(Isavuconazole) for 60 days by an expert who has treated mucor cases as amphotericin is having no effect on me.
Tab. Cresemba is around 20k per strip. But fortunately due to some yojna, I can get 2 strips free if I order 4 strips at a time. The overall treatment which mostly is the last step under yojna will cost 2,40,000 which is unaffordable for my family. Already my family spent around 10 lakhs on my treatment and now they can't financially support any of my treatment.
It will be a great help if you help in saving my life by raising funds for me
Even a small donation will help me in completing the course! Do share with others..
