Hi all, thank you for taking your time to read.
I am a heart conditional patient, few years back, I suffer heart pain occasionally and last year 2018, the pain come more frequent, almost everyday I am suffering from the pain. 31st July 2018 is the first time i admitted into hospital and was diagnosed with an extra fistula connecting my heart and my blood vessel.
In august 2018 itself, I was admitted into hospital 3 times, not knowing that the fistula is the real course to my pain. After the second admission, cardiologist inform me that my pain was due to the extra fistula, when my blood flows in to my heart, it reverse out through the fistula and that costs shortage of blood in my heart.
Cardiologist told me that at that junction, he wouldn't recommend operation because there is only 70% of success rate and out of the 70%, I only have another 70% of recovering as in who I am now. He told me only 20% of the population that suffering from this problem, fistula will grow in size meaning as long as the fistula don't grow in size, I would not have any life threat.
Come to date now, 2 months ago, I suffer from a huge sever pain in my heart and little choice did I have, I admit into hospital and after some checks, I was inform that the fistula grow in size and I have to go for operation soon
Due to the fistula is a inborn thing, I do not have any insurance coverage and the cost of the operation is SGD $90,000. Though I could use part of my medisave to pay but that doesnt cover 100%, it covers only 70% which in term, I have to pay SGD$27,000. This amount does not include hospitalization fee and expense. The whole sum will add up to SGD$40,000 to SGD50,0000.
I simply have no meant to afford the operation and decided to seek help.
Kindly hope that everyone can help in a way or another as I really needed the help. Thank you all for the time.
