Help Calel for his Inguinal Hernia and Undescended Testes Surgery

Update posted by Marie Charmaine San Luis On Jul 03, 2017

The husband and I were up by 5AM to prepare for Calel's appointment while anticipating traffic. By 6am, we were all out of the house, took a GrabCar and were on our way to Delos Santos Medical Center.

We got there by 6:32AM - too early but it was still a good thing that we were at least Calel could settle in, we only found out this morning that he needed to go through fasting so our appointment was moved to 930AM. The husband assured me that Calel could handle it, so we decided to wait.

To keep Calel comfortable and distracted the HMO Concierge hallway kept him happy with a cool aircon, no distracting noises and Youtube.

By 10:11AM, we were called for the CT Scan. The husband took him in the room and I could hear him crying, a few minutes later and it was quiet, I knew that the sedative must have kicked in.

After 5 minutes, my husband carried out Calel who was knocked out and we were asked to wait in the waiting area until he woke up.

It looked like Calel was comforted by the sedative since he decided to sleep on it, but we needed him fully awake before going home, after a good 30 minutes he opened his eyes - a little groggy but awake.

1 down and now we now can schedule surgery.

Thank you for your donations - your donations has helped us with the fare going to and coming from the hospital and buying his sedative today. If we did not have the donations, we would be very constrained to be able to make the needed trips to the hospital or buy the needed sedative.

Calel had another check-up today and this was to get a clearance from the pedia to be sedated for his CT Scan procedure.

We now have the clearance and a date for his CT scan has been set this Monday morning. We are hoping to receive the results right away so that we can now schedule for surgery next week.

Really praying that everything goes well during the scan.

Before the CT scan, we need to attain a pedia clearance for Calel so that he can be sedated. We already have a Pedia at De Los Santos Hospital where he will get his CT scan who was referred to by his Godmother.

Luckily enough, the Pedia is also affiliated at Mary Chiles Hospital where he will be having his surgery.

His schedule with the Pedia will be tomorrow and we are hoping to get his CT scan over the weekend so that we can schedule him for surgery by next week.

Again, from the bottom of our hearts - Thank you for sharing your blessings with Calel, not only do we see the surgery coming soon but we also forsee that his recovery will be comfortable for him with your donations.

06/28 UPDATE

It was a better experience with the surgeon today and Calel cooperated 40% of the time during the consultation.

The journey was far, it was raining and I have no sleep but anything for Calel to take that journey to recovery.

We learned something about him - he gets irritated by humidity. During the wait time, we were very challenged with him since he went into a meltdown for almost an hour. The husband and I tried to calm him down by carrying, hugging and singing to him but it took so much effort with the little ventilation that the hallway gave.

He kept trying to pull us off the chairs so we would go home but the husband and I were so determined to go through the consultation.

We were happy with the Doctor today, he was accommodating and he explained to us in detail what he needs to know prior to the surgery to make Calel gets the right fix.

No discussion of fee's yet since the Doctor still needs to determine the location of his testes.

Up next is a CT scan under sedation to know how the procedure will be done which is a must since his condition may lead to Testicular cancer if left untreated.

So far from Calel's fund we have spent 1,500Php which includes 2 check-ups, fare and food (He would always request to buy snacks if he passes a store).

Thank you for your prayers, support and donations so far. ❤️

Calel has not shown any symptoms to treat his condition as an emergency case. He has shown more irritability than ever and 80% percent of the time we need to keep a keen eye on him to make sure he does not jump around too much or if he has a meltdown we need to calm him down.

We both parents have not had the greatest sleep since day 1 where he showed that he had a Hernia.

Calel's sleep patterns are not normal, he sleeps at 9 or 10 PM then will make up around 2 or 3 am where he still is awake at this hour.

We had a visit to a Pedia Surgeon last night and we were told that Calel would need 4 surgeries due to undescended testicles and to repair the hernia.

He quoted us at roughly 150K or may be higher depending after the surgery.

We are still looking for other doctors to consult at this time.

Checking with 2 different hospitals, to get the CT scan we will need to get sign off from a pedia and the urologist.

The cost is ranging from Php12,000 to Php17,000++ depending on the type of CT scan (Plain or contrast) plus this includes the fee for sedation.

The ultrasound was unsuccessful since Calel did not want to cooperate, even if he was being held down. Sonologist has advised that he undergo a CT scan while sedated.
