Urgent: Brain Surgery for Jemely

Update posted by John Mark De los Santos On Jun 27, 2016

We already got our discharge orders from Dr.Cruz and Dr.Debuque. We are ready to go home.

After the Radio-Surgery, my wife has 5 wounds left by the procedure. 4 on her head left by the head frame and one on her right leg left by the Cerebral Catheter Angiogram. Besides the these, she is also feeling some numbness on her head. As per Dr.Debuque, the numbness is cause by the radiation and it should go away in few weeks time.

Other than those, my wife seems to be back to normal. We'll have a follow-up check with her doctor's in a weeks time.

We went to St.Lukes Medical Center today to meet with Dr.Eusebio L. Debuque, the Neuro-Surgeon that we have been referred to by Dr.Cruz. On his opinion, having the SRS done is the best option that we take considering the size of the AVM. Also, it is an invasive procedure and they would just use local anesthesia. He done gave us a procedure order that we have brought to the Radio-Oncology Department where we met Ms.Janet Martinez. She is one of the Physicists that would part of the SRS Team that would treat my wife. She explained to us that we would be admitted for 2 - 3 days and explained the schedule of additional test, planning and procedure itself. She also have discussed the total expenses that we would need to shoulder. The good thing about it is they give it as a package which means there quotation would be all you have to pay.

We have accepted there terms and have Jem's procedure be done on Wednesday. We would be admitted tomorrow at 11am and by the afternoon of the same day, she'll undergo Angiogram. The following day at 6:00am she'll be taken to the SRS Suite to have her treatment and be back by lunch. By Thursday we should be on our way home.

Please continue to pray and intercede for us. And we still welcome any financial support. Thank you and God bless!

Hi,

This passed weekend, my wife had experience 2 instances that of very painful headache. She have describe as a shooting pain on her left temple. When I place my finger on that area, I feel one of her veins pulsating. We were so scared since the frequency of the headache is getting near to each other. We might need to have her procedures done by Monday, June 20 next week.

Hopefully, we could reach more people to help us raise more funds for my wife.

We met with Dr.Cruz yesterday with the EEG Test Result. As per Dr.Cruz, the test results are normal. The AVM did not cause any seizure and it have not bleed yet. He gave us a go signal that we could now proceed with the Angiogram and SRS. He explained that the Angiogram needs to be done first so that we could plan on where should the SRS laser would be best to focus on for the treament to be efficient. He also said that Jem would need to be admitted for at least 2-3 days. When asked about the preferred date, we have informed the good doctor that we cannot give any preferred date as of now since we are still a little short on the funding. He just advise us to drop by on his St.Lukes clinic once we are ready to proceed with the planned procedure.


We are planning to have the treatment done before the end of June. Hope we could raise the necessary funds by the last week of this month.

Hi Everyone,

We just got back from Medical City, Ortigas to have my wife's Electroencephalogram or EEG. It has been ordered by one of her doctor's to detect if there were any seizure. That seizure may have happened last April 15, 2016 when she experienced her left eye blacking out.

Thankfully, the EEG procedure was covered by her HMO which is a very big help. We just need to raise funds for the Angiogram and SRS.
