Hi everyone! My papa was originally admitted last Friday for a hip bipolar hemiarthroplasty. Days before, he accidentally fell while sitting on a chair, causing him to obtain a fracture on his left hip. He was scheduled to have his surgery yesterday (August 15, 2019).
However, a couple of days into admission he suffered a heart attack, requiring him to be transferred to the ICU. Upon having his heart checked through an angiogram, it was discovered that several parts of his heart are blocked and are thinner than they should be. As strange as it may sound, we were very lucky that it happened while he was already in the hospital.
We were given two choices by the doctors: (1) to have him undergo angioplasty (which he did just last year due to a previous heart attack) or (2) to opt for a bypass surgery. Considering his past and present conditions (he has diabetes, has had several strokes in the past, and has suffered a heart attack just a year prior), we cannot afford the risk of angioplasty considering he needs 6 stents. Since we’ve tried it in the past and discovered that it’s not a long-term option for him, we chose the second option. Considering its benefits, such as extending one’s life for another 10-15 years, it seems like the better choice.
We were informed that it would cost around Php 1,300,000 or USD 25,000. He will undergo surgery on Monday (August 19, 2019), but he will be staying for several more days in the hospital to recover and receive other treatments. During this time he also will still be having his hemodialysis sessions, which he has been having even before being admitted. My siblings and I were able to cover the expenses of the days leading to this, but we will be needing all the help we can get to pay for the surgery and his recovery.
With all of that said, my siblings and I humbly reach out to anyone who would like to extend a little help to my papa. He is a very kindhearted man who has helped a lot of people throughout his life. We hope that he receives the same kindness from anyone who would like to lend a hand to him.
Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Prayers are very much needed, too!
