Help My Brother Is Struggling for life with Small Bowel Ischemia

Ask for an update


My name is Shyam Praveen R and I am here to raise funds for my brother Vikram who is 35 years old. Vikram lives in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu with family. Vikram is working as an Ola Cab drive.

About one month ago, we noticed that my brother was falling sick with stomachache When it happened a frequently, we started to worry and decided to take him to the hospital.

The doctor guessed that it may be gastric or food poison. On observing his blood tests & Scan reports the doctor only noted that his Haemoglobin level was mysteriously low, kidney was almost stopped functioning and heart is working only 40 %, puls were drastically coming down and said nothing more he can treat.  And he directed us to another doctor in PSG Hospital, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu and sent his reports over.

Now we were watch helplessly as he struggles with severe fevers, difficulty in breathing, and suffering by non tolerable pain. Being a patient who cannot understand the extent of the disease he battles, my brother is upset and confused with the symptoms.

His Doctor finally diagnosed that he is suffering by SMALL BOWEL ISCHEMIA (Small bowel or mesenteric ischemia may be a life-threatening condition, arising from any one of numerous causes of disturbance of the normal blood flow through the small bowel wall).  

Due to his conditions, doctor advised to do major operation immediately... Without any other option, we agreed and waited for 5 hours in front of theatre. Finally operation was successful. But out of 6 metre small intestine, they cut down the infected 5 metres.
Now the challenge has stared in terms of health and Finance. Again 2nd operation done.. they said that his treatment would last two months, consisting of TNP and other process in ICU. The medical bill comes up to Rs 6 lakhs. My parents and I pooled in our savings but could not collect more than Rs 4 lakhs. And now due to blood infection, after tryed all level of anti biotics and failed, now they started treating with Anti fungal drugs. The side affects is very worrying now. Mainly it affects Kidney function and he need to go by dialysis process... Now the medical bill estimate is around ₹2100000/-

I am yet to fully digest the shocking diagnosis. My parents has left their job as well, to take care of my brother.  now I am the only bread winner of my hole family including my parents, son, spouse and my brother's 2 little sons. sustain ourselves on my earnings.

At that hopeless situation, my friend has suggested this group funding.  You are our only chance at saving my brother. We are grateful to every kind donor that chooses to contribute to his recovery. Please share our story with your family and friends across social media like Facebook, Whatsapp, and Twitter. Thank you.

we've arranged the amount from savings. In next 30 days, we need Rs.17,00,000. more for Further Treatment. Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help.
