Philip, 2 Yrs, Heart Problem, BangaruPalyam, Chittoor, AP

24 Feb 2010 :

Philip came to Narayana Hrudayalaya for check up. TMAD consulted Dr. Chinnaswamy Reddy today. The boy (Philips) is doing good, and he has to come for check up after 6 months. Philip's father only spent the amount for all tests. Nothing is sponsored from TMAD this time. Unfortunate thing is that, Philip's grandfather lost his driver job as he spent so many days at Narayana Hrudayalaya with philips. Please let us know if anyone finds any suitable job for him.

7:37 PM: The doctors agreed to operate on the baby today. Till today the baby is admitted for angiogram. But today, have decided not to do angiogram but to go ahead with the operation.

26/10/2009: Ajitha and her friend took the baby to hospital on Monday to check whether the baby can be operated/given green signal for Angiogram. Blood tests worth Rs. 2500 were taken and the doctors finally concluded that Hemoglobin is very low and hence can't be operated right now. They have given a Tonic and asked us to come after 25 days. We should thank Ajitha and her friend who has spent almost the whole day and logically concluded the case. Though they had to leave by 11 AM, they stayed till 2:30 PM and helped the patients in all ways. They really deserve appreciation. We have sponsored them the Tonics and asked them to come after 25 days.

2) The doctors were not able to decide on the operation. They said they want to do Angiogram which requires the patient to be admitted in NH on Monday. It costs Rs. 15500.
3) Once Angiogram is done, the NH team of doctors who meet every Wednesday will discuss whether the operation can be done or not. If lucky, they will do the surgery.
Expenses: Registration Fee (Rs. 250) and Medicines (Rs. 26)

22/10/2009: We contacted hospitals in Hyderabad to get support for this case under Aarogya Sri Scheme, but as this case is very critical nobody has come forward to do the operation. So, we have the only option is to consult Narayana Hrudayalaya Doctors.

14/10/2009: Philip's father Ravi Chandran contacted us through Sowmya's father Mogilesh. TMAD only supported for Sowmya's heart operation at Narayana Hrudayalaya, Bangalore.


Case Details :

Name: Philip T

Father's name: Ravi Chandra
Contact No:  
Occupation: daily labour (Coolie)
Income: Rs.70/day (if they get work)
Problem: Hole in the heart
Consulted Hospitals earlier: CMC Vellore, Apollo Hyderabad and Satyasai Hospital Bangalore
Consulting Hospital: Narayana Hrudayalaya, Bangalore
Consulting Doctor: Chinnaswamy Reddy
Patient ID: 284793
Cost of Operation: Rs. 2.25Lakhs. TMAD spoke to the management and reduced the amount to Rs.43,000


Philip (2yrs) from Bangarupalem, Chittor (dt) needs support for his heart operation. His parents are coolie, get Rs.70 per day if they have work. Doctors informed about his problem at the age of 2 months (He is2 + years old now :( ) . They consulted CMC Vellore, Apollo Hyderabad, Satyasai Hospital Bangalore but they did not get support (finance) from any hospital for operation.

TMAD team took that baby boy to Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital, Bangalore, last month for check up. Doctors advised to take Cath test to assess his condition. Due to lack of Heamoglobin content in blood, he was provided medication. We took him to Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital last week for the same test. He got admitted after paying Rs.13000. Doctors discussed about this case on Wednesday and decided to do CT scan and an extra Rs3000 was asked to pay. Dr Chinnaswamy Reddy(surgeon) is looking after the case. Doctors today decide to operate and has given us the estimated cost to be 1.62500 lakh after all their support for the cause. (actaul cost is 2.25 lakh). As this case is critical, operation has to be done as early as possible which may costs around Rs.1.5 Lakh after few concessions.

Grand parents are taking care of him now at hospital. If his parents come to hospital for few days, they have to loose their daily earnings. So, they have sent boy's grand parents. Also, the boy's mother conevied recently and so couldnot be present at hospital.
