Habang lumilipas ang araw pakiramdam ko palaki na ng palaki ang bukol ko sa tiyan. I do not know how long it would take for it to affect other organs and even have compllications.
Last year I was diagnosed with a Ventral Hernia which needs operation/surgery as soon as possible. If you would see me I usually look a lot fat specially on the center of the stomach, that is because I have a bulge in the abdomen which is the small intestine coming out of the abdominal wall.
This condition is becoming a big concern for me already. For the sake of my family,I NEED YOUR HELP SINCE I HAVE NO MEANS TO REALLY GO WITH THE OPERATION.
WHY HELP ME?
- The condition is not covered by my medical insurance since it is a pre-existing condition.
- I am a single father to 3 kids and my expenses mostly goes to them. If you help me you also help my kids.
- I will be a lot better and can organize more events if this condition is taken care of.
I usually do not go to this length of asking a fund raising but a friend Brian Uy told me that it is a good idea. So, if you want to help please do.
What is a ventral hernia?
A ventral hernia is a bulge of tissues through an opening of weakness within your abdominal wall muscles. It can occur at any location on your abdominal wall.
Many are called incisional hernias because they form at the healed site of past surgical incisions. Here abdominal wall layers have become weak or thin, allowing for abdominal cavity contents to push through.
In a strangulated ventral hernia, intestinal tissue gets tightly caught within an opening in your abdominal wall. This tissue can’t be pushed back into your abdominal cavity, and its blood flow is cut off. This type of ventral hernia is an emergency requiring surgery.
Hernias can occur in other places of your body and are named after the location where they occur — for example, a femoral hernia occurs in your upper thigh.
What will happen if it remains untreated?
Incarceration: Your intestine becomes trapped in a weak abdomen wall where it can’t be pushed back inside of your abdominal cavity. This may cause blockage to your intestine or cut off its blood supply.
Strangulation: This occurs when blood flow to your intestine is blocked. Part of your intestine may die or begin to decay. Immediate surgery is necessary to restore blood flow and save the intestine.
