After the face-to-face checkup with the new doctor from the new hospital facility, we decided to have angioplasty instead of bypass. Bypass will stop my heart while doing the procedure, and I am not comfortable with it as I remember my uncle died months after he had his bypass.
As of now, our money is not enough, but we believe that God will provide.
May God help me to seek Him with my whole heart as I will undergo Angioplasty on April 28 (tentative date).
May God guide the hands of the doctors, so that the Angioplasty will be safe and successful. Amen!
Thank you for your heartfelt messages and overwhelming donations. You don't know how much it means to me and my family.
My family and I decided to look for another hospital as we cannot afford the total cost (Php 578,870.50) that was given to us from my previous hospital. Unfortunately, the new hospital informed my daugther to prepare Php 500,000 for my Multivessel Angioplasty; at least they lessen Php 78,870.50 from my previous hospital's quotation for this procedure. They also found another blockage in my heart when they analyzed the video of my angiogram from my previous hospital. In this case, I need 5 stents, NOT 4 stents.
I will have a face-to-face checkup on Tuesday (April 20) to discuss with me if I would like to undergo Angioplasty or Bypass. They will also discuss the risks of these procedures.
