Uno’s Road to Recovery

Update posted by Faye Manalac On Sep 29, 2018

Still in the ICU.

He's now bald. (After the tumor operation, it was just a portion of his hair that was shaved)

The doctors needed to put a shunt in his head. That's a tube that runs from the side of his head to his peritoneal cavity. He was having seizures when the space that the tumor took was being filled with liquid. That creates pressure on his brain which causes his seizure. This shunt aims to help him drain that fluid out. This is a permanently affixed to his head now.

They also did tracheostomy and gastrostomy on him. It's because the tumor's location is very close to the brain stem. That means that it may have affected that area too and that controls bodily functions such as breathing and swallowing. So to aid in his recovery, the tracheostomy will help him breathe. On his own, he takes 1 to 2 breaths only. Gastostomy is the process of putting a feeding tube directly to his atomach.

He has made good progress since then.

Hi Kindly Help Me I am Ahosan Habib From Bangladesh. For my birthday this year, I want to do something different. I appreciate my beloved ones who always want to celebrate & do lovely things for me, but this year I want to put the focus on a big issue that requires our attention. Bangladeshi are being victims of a horrible war & are suffering from malnutrition and disheartning conditions. That is why I urge my friends & family to instead of buying me a gift this year or taking me out to celebrate, to donate this money for the Bangladeshi It would make me immensely happy if we reached the target so I can give the money to Save the friends, who are currently working on the ground in Bangladeshi to help the friend and their families. Please share this link & let’s reach the target! It would mean the world to me
