Dear friends, today we’ve got a nice news for you, though the photos accompanying it may feel a bit disturbing. Recently, doctors have performed another unscheduled surgery for Oleksandr, one of the patients of the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project. Some time ago we announced this additional stage of his treatment.
Sashko after the completion of the main course of treatment. Then no one expected any complications could arise
Angry, disappointed and suffering from severe pain, Sashko had to apply to the Project once again. Despite the course of treatment seemed completed, he didn’t feel any relief. A thorough examination testified that notwithstanding the successful outcome of the therapy, the hotbeds of covert infection gone active in Sashko’s bone. That was rather an unpleasant discovery as despite the main fracture got healed, new contagion was still continuously ruining the bone.
Thus, there were not to many options to choose from: immediately after a brief period of preparation, Sashko was taken onto the operating table. A satisfying fact: up to the very moment of getting anesthesia the man remained quite cheerful and optimistic.
Then, a prolonged and complex surgery followed, in the course of which the doctors cleared the hotbeds of infection and removed the contaminated tissue. Later, Sashko got slightly upset by the fact he will need to wear the Ilizarov apparatus for some time again, for the operated bone to remain fixed in the right position for proper healing. For Sashko, this means he will need to wear the apparatus a little while longer.
Sure, today the leg looks rather scary: if you have a strong stomach you can see a slightly shocking photo below. But as a result of the surgery, it is expected that the Project’s doctors will eventually turn productive, and shortly after his complete recovery Sashko will forget about his injury forever. After all, this is the main reason why all together we have been trying to help him, right?
Oleksandr is a veteran and a volunteer, too. Almost at the very beginning of the war he started to actively support our military using the resources of his own business, and later joined the military himself. You can find the complete dramatic story of this man via the link.
Dear friends, we have to apply to you seeking your help for another time. We need to pay the bill for Sashko’s treatment as well as the bills for treatment of other wounded veterans which haven’t been paid in full yet. As soon as their treatment is being paid for at the expense of your donations solely, we just cannot cope with it without your assistance. Thus, they can just lose that vague but vital chance for recovery the Project offers. So, friends, please join in, as your affordable donations provide us an opportunity to make small wonders for our wounded vets. And they unconditionally deserve some signs of our gratitude, don’t they?
