In 2002, i was shot by an insane police officer on my right leg while working with a fast food. I was rush to the staff hospital after the gunshot between police force and armed robbers within the vicinity. Because the shot was at a close range, it created a hole in the bone and of course fracture which made me to go through series of operation to correct lost of flesh in that region and the orthopedic. After the first operation which involved removal of bone from my side-waist, osteomyllitis sets in and that infection so called caused the death of the grafted bone. This resulted in a foul odour which was unbearable hence led to another operation which involves removal that grated bone and the replacement of another; and that was done in 2003. From then till now, and with the aid of the implan that embedded, i have been moving about. Though i have the down part of the leg with a very tiny sinus that i would go but didn't till now. Few weeks ago, after having series of pain and a larger sinus on my leg, i went to see an orthopaedic and was told that i already have a chronic osteomyllitis which can only be corrected by removing the already infected implant and also placing on the bone, an antibiotic bead. This operation was told will cost about $2000, excluding accomodation and feeding. As a result of this leg condition, i have not been gainfully employed and i do not want to loose my leg to this infection. Pls kindly to save this leg from being amputated. Thanking you in anticipation for your swift donation towards this cause.
