Support Syed Wasim Recover From A Blood Clot In The Brain

Wasim is a 2017 Teach for India (TFI) Alumnus from Hyderabad. Wasim spent two years teaching underprivileged children during his fellowship at TFI. Later he continued to work for the underserved at India School Leadership Institute. 

He is currently diagnosed with two clots in his brain - one on the right side and the other in the central area of the brain
Doctors advised for an immediate admission and treatment, any delay increases the chance of clot expanding and causing him to slip into a coma. Treatment would involve anticoagulation medicines administered under very strict supervision for a minimum of 5 days in the Neurology ICU because the treatment is risky and involves a high chance of serious complications like seizures, paralysis, bleeding and loss of vision. Wasim was admitted to the Neurology ICU after consent from his family to begin the treatment on 22nd November.

He is able to incur his expenses of Rs 1 Lakh from his medical insurance. He is able to support himself from his savings of Rs 1 Lakh.

Rs 2.5 Lakh more would be needed to pay his medical bills. His friends are helping him in whatever way they can. We request all of you to extend financial support in whatever capacity possible for Wasim so that he can afford treatment and beat this illness.

Update 29/11/2019

He was discharged yesterday evening with a strict diet and medications to be continued for the next 6 to 8 months.

He thankfully did not show any expected/common complications and hence had no need for surgery during the last week of treatment. He has been responding well to the anticoagulants administered through injections. He is advised to continue the treatment in the form of tablets after discharge.

He has been called after 3 days for an INR test to check if the clotting index has stabilized.

He will be allowed to go home to Kolkata after this test.

He will be undergoing another test next month to determine the reason for the clot. Long term precautions must be taken accordingly.

Wasim is responding well to the anticoagulant medicines.

Doctors had warned about the risk of seizures, bleeding, and paralysis during the treatment. But Wasim is showing no complications so far, which is a good sign that he is responding well to the treatment.

The size of the clot itself cannot be monitored on a daily basis because he cannot be exposed to radiation so frequently.

An MRI Venagram will be conducted tomorrow to monitor clot size.
