My good friend, Vinny Ngo (36 years old), has undergone back surgery in September 2013. It was an unsuccessful surgery, which led to permanent nerve damage as well greatly reduced power failure in the entire left leg. He has constant nerve pain, do not sleep at night because the pain is unbearable. He has also been extremely sensitive to sound, which in turn leads to throbbing headaches.
The hospital refuse to operate again, as this can not be reversed. The message from the hospital: "Unless the pain gets better little by little within 2 years time, this will most likely be permanent." But the pain has gotten worse month after month, and he does not see a bright future. He can not even bend down to take on socks.
Due legal assistance to appeal the hospital, the family has until now spent vast resources to cover the expenses. The next step is to take the case to the court. You have to go through two units (Norsk Pasientskadeerstating - NPE, and Pasientskadenemnda - PSN) before the case can be taken to the court. The average time is about 4 years before the case comes the court. There is a long way to go, and it's even longer to go forward to the court.
His family consists of a wife, his son (9 years) and his daughter (4 years). The economy of the family si very cramped.
His family will be forever grateful for whatever help you can contribute.
