"He is too young to experience such pains. God has been really unkind to my son, bringing him such a dreadful disease and making him weaker day by day. it has been a difficult Journey for us so far. I don't know how can I arrange money for his treatment."- Navnath Pokhale Sarthak's Father12-year-old Sarthak is distressed and has been in a constant pain for a while now. He has hemophilia. The condition does not allow him to any form of physical activity. Even a very basic form of physical activity leads to bleeding of his nose.
He started bleeding from the brain
Sarthak has been suffering from a blood-related disease called Hemophilia A, an extremely serious blood condition which prevents wounds from healing and prevents blood clotting.
Due to the disease, Sarthak suffered internal bleeding in the brain and had to undergo an urgent and extremely critical brain surgery last month. It has been a challenge for Sarthak's father to go to work and also take care of his child in so much pain.
Last 11 years have poked multiple needles on Sarthak's body leaving him extremely weak.
Sarthak was diagnosed with the disease when he was still 7 months old and for the last 11 years, it has been a difficult journey. Since the treatment for the disease is limited the only relief he gets is from the plasma shots. These injections give make him feel better, however, the effect of the shot goes away in few weeks and the cycle continues.
"Our child's growth has stopped the day he was diagnosed of this, he remains weak till today."
We never anticipated a nose bleeding would cause damage to his brain
On 3rd of September, a sudden bleeding from the nose made Sarthak unconscious. "We knew at that moment that something was wrong with our kid since a nose bleeding had never made him unconscious."Sarthak was rushed to the hospital and had to undergo an urgent brain surgery called craniotomy to stop the internal bleeding in the brain. The bleeding occurred due to rupture of one of the veins and could have turned fatal.
Sarthak got treatment at the right time and after 4 days he was out of danger. Sarthak is still on the path to recovery and in the hospital and his father is looking for means to clean his hospital bills.
