ROSALINA FUROG 68Y.OLD (housewife, no health card)
My Mama was diagnosed having Pott's disease or TB of the Bone (yes it exist!) is a non contagious type of TB but diagnostics & possible surgery are definitely financially sickening!!! We are an average type of family who is for sure can't afford to get mama the spine implant that she needs and it means that she has to endure her back pain or a day may come that she can't move her legs anymore.
T10 & T11 of her spine are the most heavily damaged, we got lucky at the moment since her medications are not too expensive yet. About 4 weeks now that She's taking Fixcom4 drinking 3 tablets and other 4 vitamins & supplements but her condition as of this writing is already degrading. Lately she feels that she's getting weak, that she can't move or can't walk anymore and has heavier feeling already but as much as she can she still continues to move her legs to awaken her veins and nerves.
As we continue our days with a brave face, I encourage all prayer warriors to pray for her strength, her wellness and for all of us, Our family to be able to face this challenge with our brave hearts! 🙏💜
Oct 2 Update: just got home from Cardinal hospital went to see a Spine surgeon. Current doctor is doubtful as there's a possibility that it's not TB of the bone but can also be cancer. These are the 2 most common/outstanding reason of her condition.
Surgery is needed ASAP to decompress Mama's spine before it's too late. Paralysis is on its way very soon.
We're Looking for recommendations of the cheapest hospital or spine surgeon as estimated cost from all 3 different doctors are at 300-500k PH peso (or $5000-$10,000). The amount is only for the surgery alone not including rehab/medicine after operation.
Asking for whatever assistance you may share to us. May God Bless us All.
