Hobbled like horse: wounded ATO veteran is getting prepared for uncommon surgery

Hobbled like horse: wounded ATO veteran is getting prepared for uncommon surgery

Dear friends, it is time to share some news about the heavily wounded ATO veteran, Petro, again. Well, no surprise in talking about him though, as Petro is among the most difficult patients at the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project. A guy who underwent loads of surgeries, despite his wound is still far from being healed up. Recently Petro has recovered after another surgery and went home. But the most intricate part of treatment still awaits him: this is what we are going to tell you about.

In the course of another surgery the Project’s doctors corrected the outcome of previous operations following which Petro happened to sleep in a wrong position that led to suppressing of the injured limb and resulted in rejection of the transplanted piece of skin. Now the doctors sorted out the injury having removed the necrotic tissues, treated the rest of the wound and transplanted another skin fragment.

One of Petro’s initial surgeries. This is where we had to start

In this way, the specialists of the Project have been amassing soft tissues while the wound is new and treatment proves effective. Later, on completing numerous reconstructive surgeries in the course of which the surgeons restore the soft tissues of the foot, they will proceed to the bones. They will restore the torn off heel bone and sort the entire bone structure out to enable Petro to move his foot easily and with no limitations.

Petro had got wounded last year, in May: he struck a russian landmine near the town of Dokuchaievsk. If not his solid army boot, Petro would have lost his leg; still he got away with his heel bone and foot soft tissues torn completely off. In military hospitals, their doctors got relentless: they insisted on amputation and subsequent prosthetics and even appointed the surgery for the guy. Pale like hell and exhausted by continuous medication, Petro gave up and agreed to amputation. But his friends and volunteers got spooked and talked the guy into trying innovative technologies instead.

Let us reiterate once again that Petro was literally pulled out from the surgery table on the very day of scheduled amputation. Within the Biotech, the guy first underwent a few preventive and examinational surgeries, and later, when his open wound was cleaned up, the doctors started to grow up and amass the soft tissues. One reconstructive surgery after another, and Petro’s foot gradually acquired its natural form.

The next step which is due to start shortly after the guy’s recovering from the previous surgeries, seems a bit inconvenient. The medics are going to literally hobble Petro. The Project’s chief surgeon Volodymyr Oksymets is planning to partially transplant a fragment of skin from Petro’s one leg onto another – in the way that for certain period of time the same fragment would be attached to both his legs. As soon as the fragment got reliably attached to the injured leg, its root will be cut which will enable Petro to move his both legs separately. Still he will have to spend certain amount of time with his feet totally immobilized.

At the moment, Petro is wrapping in the blanket getting mentally prepared for hobbling

On this occasion, may we remind you about Petro’s urgent needs. To pay for Petro’s complete course of treatment we still need to raise a minor amount: the sum is just about 25 thousand UAH. Will you agree that as compared with total sum we, the volunteers of People’s Project, have already paid for treatment – which makes about 800 thousand UAH – the rest of the sum looks rather insignificant.

That is why we are urging you to join in and participate in the Project, once again: together we can effectively support Petro and the rest of our fighters who are undergoing treatment within the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project and who desperately needs our assistance. Dear friends, please don’t hesitate to contribute into the Project as much as you can, because often even a few hryvnias’ donation can prove to be decisively effective!
