Right Sector fighter, Oleksiy has been discharged after two operations on his leg.
In particular, during the surgeries doctors found and removed gangrenous fragments of bone and soft tissue, conducted sanitation of the wound and installed an apparatus for the metered replacement of the defect bone and tissue.
Currently, Alex will continue his recovery in preparation for the next stage of treatment.
The Right Sector Ukrainian Volunteer Corps soldier was wounded on February 22, 2015 on the front line near the village of Pisky, near Donetsk airport. During the attack a shell exploded alongside the fighter, resulting in injuries to both legs, Oleksiy also received a concussion. While his right leg received damage to only the soft tissue, his left leg was shattered.
In Dnepropetrovsk, the soldier underwent treatment to the soft tissue – despite considerable damage to the state of his leg doctors managed to normalize it somewhat. Later Oleksiy was transferred for treatment in Kyiv, where a bone infection overtook the fighter and he was threatened with amputation of his leg. Oleksiy never agreed with doctors on this, so he was forced to change his place of treatment. After 10 surgeries it seemed like the worst was behind him. Doctors had installed an orthopedic rod in his leg when osteomyelitis set in again – his leg began to hurt and became very swollen.
Eventually Oleksiy was recommended by a volunteer to apply to the project Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded.
