Maftei Elisei has three years, is from Peris, Ilfov County and suffers from several diseases, including:
Left femoral vein thrombosis, Elisei foot swells and changes skin color to bruise. Elisei also suffers from congenital thrombophilia (blood clots too quickly). For this reason, Elisei is harvested blood and twice a day for INR analysis.
Elisei also has a delay in development and growth due to protein allergy in cow's milk, having to consume only almond milk and rice.
Health problems began at the age of two months, discovered at Louis Turcanu Hospital (in Timisoara), following specialized investigations. The biggest health problems started in June last year, when it was followed by a sore throat and a urinary infection with Klebsiela, and parents saw that a foot was more swollen than the other. From pediatrics, she was sent to surgery where a left vaginal hydrocele hernia (swollen testicles) was discovered. From surgery, he was sent to a specialist kidney and, after analyzes sent abroad, left femoral vein thrombosis was discovered.
Unfortunately, in the last year, Elisei stayed only through the hospital, and until now doctors did not give him clear diagnoses, and then follow a treatment or surgery that ultimately leads to the child's revenge.
For this reason, Elisei parents sought desperate solutions and other medical opinions, because not so, which parent could sit with his hands to wait forever for a clear diagnosis, to know what to do for to save her baby?
With the help of a humanitarian association and donors' financial support, Elisei arrived at the beginning of the year in Hungary in search of a concrete diagnosis that would lead to concrete treatment. After very careful investigations, doctors in Hungary told parents that 70% of the left foot and 30% of the right foot are affected by the disease and require emergency surgery. Any delay, will complicate the disease even more, will further affect your legs, with the real risk of losing them. Also, Elisei was found to have many lymph nodes, two of whom were suspected of cancer.
Following the ones in Hungary, Elisei parents translated all the medical papers and analyzes carried out both in Hungary and Romania and sent them to several foreign clinics to find a hospital where to do the surgery. They were with Elisei and doctors in Romania to see where to operate, unfortunately both in Romania and in all the clinics in Europe they received a negative answer that they can not be operated, being too small.
They received an affirmative answer from a US clinic. and one from Turkey, Koç University Hospital. Parents chose the clinic in Turkey being closer to home. The clinic in Turkey can do the surgery but have conditioned this with resuming and performing a new set of analyzes, after which physicians can determine how and the level of surgery.
The cost of these analyzes, including hospitalization, amounts to € 20,000 (this cost is estimated, it may increase or may be lower, as physicians decide when Elisei arrives in Turkey).
Immediately after these analyzes the cost of surgery will be determined.
These are diagnosis of Elisei:
Old left vein thrombosis.
Allergy to cows, soy and goat milk.
Left vaginal hydrocele.
Acute respiratory failure.
Cancer suspect, very many lymph nodes.
Parents, a modest family, are not able to bear the cost of these analyzes and the costs of the operation that will follow. That is why I appeal to all who can and wish to be with Elisei, not to lose their feet, to have a normal childhood and to enjoy life as any child, to donate in order to cover these costs .
