On 11th Jan 2020, my mother had a stroke and fell from bike causing severe traumatic brain injury. We took her to Manipal Hospital Whitefield which was nearest just in time to save her life. She was operated the same day and was shifted to CCM.
She was on a ventilator for more than 15 days and post which tracheostomy(hole in the neck for respiration) was done. Her condition is stable but she is still unconscious due to the severity of the injury to the brain. Due to a few infections, her treatment has been prolonged, because of which we can't move her out to any other hospital.
She is still on oxygen (tp support) and in ICU and the cost is increasing every day. The bill has crossed 18 lakhs till 14-02-2020 & we have been informed that another 15 days of hospital stay is recommended for her for which another 6 lakhs is estimated(total=24 lakhs).
