Manoj Kumar Surliya, 2009 batch of Textile Technology, a resident of Village Kayla near Bhiwani, underwent a biopsy in March, 2010 which revealed he had Kidney damage to the extent of 70%.
Subsequently in April, 2010 his treatment began in Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi which continued for three months followed by treatment in AIIMS till August, 2010. Following some mild improvement he joined Vardhman at Bhopal, however due to a relapse he had to leave his job and returned to Delhi to start treatment at Apollo Hospital in New Delhi, having to undergo dialysis three times a week. His condition continued to deteriorate and by December, he required daily dialysis and also had to be admitted to ICU.
For next four months, till April, 2011, Manoj continued to be in and out of ICU and it also became clear that a Kidney Transplant was essential for his survival. His mother donated a kidney, which was transplanted on 9 May, 2011 and Manoj was discharged on 16 May, 2011.
Post operative care is of significance with any surgery and more so with an organ transplant. Manoj has to visit the hospital for follow-up on a regular basis, every few days, along with diagnostic tests to be carried out for monitoring the parameters. He has been prescribed various medicines, some of which might continue for a prolonged period. His mother also continues to be in the post-operative care stage.
Besides the frequent follow up visits, Manoj currently has to take a lot of precautions to protect himself from any kind of infection, etc., and it is anticipated that it would be at least a year before he can start working on a regular basis.
They are currently residing in a rented accommodation in Bahadurgarh, as it is very cumbersome, costly and possibly harmful for Manoj and his mother, to travel all the way from Bhiwani to Apollo every few days for follow up visits.
I accompanied Mr. Sudhish Aggarwala (1980) on 2nd July, 2011, to the Bahadurgarh residence and met with Manoj and his family to better understand the medical history, and current scenario.
In this visit, we found out that Manoj has one brother, who is studying and three sisters, two of whom are still unmarried. His father, the sole bread earner for the family, has had to leave his job due to Manoj's medical situation. The family has consumed all the resources at its disposal, and has exhausted all possible sources for borrowing funds.
The approximate expense on his treatment, including the cost of medicines, diagnostic tests, doctor’s fee, travel to hospital, rent for accommodation, and other incidental expenses is in the range of 40 to 45 thousand rupees per month.
We are planning to make provision for his treatment for a period of one year from now. We are working towards paying out a fixed amount of money to Manoj every month, and also procure and provide him with all the necessary medicines. Of the various medicines Manoj has to take regularly, some are very highly priced and are mentioned below:
It will be a big help if someone having links in pharmaceutical industry can help us source the medicines at discounted prices. Also, in case anyone is aware of any schemes, or NGOs, which can help Manoj in reimbursement of any of the expenses in whatever ways, we can explore such possibilities.
We also solicit your help in the form of funding support so that we can, together, make sure that the family continues to get some cash support and medicines, etc., on a regular basis for the next one year.
