I am Suchorita Dey from Raghunathganj, Murshidabad, West Bengal. My 7 years old daughter, Taposidhha has been suffering from choledochal cyst (Type IV) with gallstones. She was admitted to AMRI Hospital, Mukundapur (Kolkata, West Bengal) on 27-May-2021 for excision of choledochal cyst and gall bladder. A general 2-3 hours surgery took 7 hours on 28-May-21 due to complications. Post surgery, she had to spend 9 days in ICU before she was shifted to general pediatric ward. But subsequently she developed severe abdominal pain and further investigation revealed a small bowel obstruction. For which she had to undergo another surgery on 10-Jun-21 and since then she is in PICU for further monitoring and treatment.
For the surgery & treatment, hospital gave me an estimate of 3 Lakhs earlier which I had planned. But multiple surgeries and medical complications have increased the expenses significantly. As on 14-Jun-21, hospital bill is more than 6 Lakhs. Now doctors are suggesting keeping her in PICU for another 7-10 days for close monitoring until gradually diet is established and abdominal drainage output becomes almost nil. Thus, considering ICU charges, hospital stay and other related expenses, the anticipated expenses will be at least another 5 Lakhs. That means the total expenditure will be approximately 11 Lakhs.
Being a single mother and relying on my only earnings from private tuition, I tried my level best to arrange the initial expenditure of 3 Lakhs utilizing my savings and help from close friends. The current situation has a deficit of another 8 Lakhs. Unfortunately, I don't have any other family support as I lost my parents and elder sister. Thus, I sincerely request all kindhearted people to help me in funding my daughter’s treatment. Any contribution will save my little angel.
Total expenses: 11 L (current hospital bill 6L + anticipated expenses 5L)
I have arranged: 3L
Help needed for remaining: 8L
Thank you so much for your kind support. Toposidhha needs your blessings and wishes.
