Stan has been off work since October 2017. He has almost completely exhausted his work and disability benefits and if not back to work by the end of May he may potentially lose his job, vehicle, phone, medical benefits and any income. Stan’s doctor and hospital bills continue mounting. Not to mention the additional costs to travel so far.
Stan has been gradually experiencing increased pain in his abdomen area and inexplicably losing weight since the summer of 2017. Over the last six months doctors have diagnosed Stan with ongoing bleeding internally, vitamin D deficient, and anemic. Stan began multiple expensive iron infusions, B12 shots, oral meds, and recently had a blood transfusion. In addition, he was found with pulmonary embolisms in both lungs and placed on expensive medications to thin his blood. All of these months experiencing excruciating pain in his stomach/abdomen area which has caused him to be unable to eat and makes him completely exhausted. After several hospital visits in Kansas City, Olathe, and Topeka, many multiple outpatient tests, and doctor’s visits; including KU, it was determined Stan has a significantly established SMV artery clot due to the time it has taken to find it. Local doctors do not have the level of experience required to help or operate. Stan has been accepted to be seen at the Mayo Clinic in MN.
