Urgent need for blood donors for Tony - emergency! Empty Don't know who didn't show - doctor not answering my emails

Post by simpsca Mon Jul 19, 2010 9:30 pm

Jim, I am sending emails to the doctor - he has not replied. I don't know who didn't show up as the doctor won't reply. A friend of Tony's posted on another web forum that now 7 donors are needed. I don't know what is going on and why I can't get an answer out of the doctor.

A friend just talked to Tony and he thinks Dr. Juan Pablo is the best doctor ever. But a Mexican doctor knows how to get blood - many people have offered money to pay for it, and the doctor should be able to find Mexican donors for money.

So I'm sorry I don't have answers for you. If the doctor ever answers my emails I'll let you and everyone know right away.

I haven't been able to find out who didn't show but Jim I understand your two donors are on the list. Sorry for your frustration, I'm not getting answers fast enough either.

Dr. called me last night, and one of my donors couldn't find his office in Chapala. He is scheduled to go on Thursday, to donate. He is O neg. I am sure the other donor made the trip. Hope this helps.

Can additional units be purchased at a GDL blood bank? If so, how much, and does anyone know if purchased units must be replaced?

Urgent need for blood donors for Tony - emergency! Empty Blood Bank?

Post by simpsca Tue Jul 20, 2010 4:42 pm

Hi Jim,

Thank you again and again. The doctors office is located at: Guerrero 141-A - it's near the Legion in Chapala. The legion is on Hidalgo on the right as you are heading to the park - Hidalgo is one way toward the park. Make a left in Guerrero near the corner of the Legion and you will find his office - I haven't been there but was given directions. But I understand everyone is leaving from the Legion.

Oh, forgot to mention about blood banks. They have a very limited blood bank here in Mexico and hospitals only stock what they need. When I had surgery I had to go in a week ahead of time so they could blood type me (they didn't trust that I knew) and said they would order it for the day of my surgery. Fortunately I didn't need it or I would have to do the same thing Tony is doing only after the surgery.

And it's my understanding from friends in Guadalajara - she is a dentist and all her brothers are doctors is that you cannot purchase blood from the blood bank. Don't know why, but everyone has to replace blood they use. What is normally done here (as per my Mexican doctor friends) is they usually get all their young relatives to donate, or they have their doctor go to a university and advertise to pay for donors. I understand the going rate is 400 pesos.

I explained to Dr. Pablo that we had lots of money donors, and could he find donors to pay. It seemed that he was going to do that but don't know what happened. He doesn't have time to answer all my emails, and I can understand he must be really busy right now.

So the blood bank thing doesn't operate here they way it does in the US. My dad donated blood 4 times a year to the Pa. blood bank and he had tons of blood credit - came in handy when he nearly bled to death twice. But you can't do that here. Someone asked me if you could have your own blood frozen here - frozen and saved for an emergency. I don't know if that is possible but will ask my doctor next time I go.

I think there is a difference between IMSS blood requirement, and private. My friend required 6 units....we moved him from IMSS...to private hospital, and he got the blood he needed....we brought donors, paid for the 3 units, not donated....FYI

Yes Jim, that is what I understand that from two surgeries I had - I have private insurance. I was blood typed a week before surgery and the hospital said they would have it on hand in case I needed it - which I didn't. I should ask my agent if I would have to replace it. Didn't even think about it at the time because I knew the hospital would have it if I needed it - San Javier. I don't think people with IMSS have a clue what they are in for. I've tried to tell some friends and they don't want to hear me.

But I doubt Tony can pay for the open heart surgery. My friend had that surgery in Guadalajara 3 years ago - had to pay $40,000 USD before they let him check out, and then get his US insurer to reimburse him. Not everyone has that kind of money and I doubt Tony has any insurance in the US. I wish there was more information about IMSS out there. I have many friends who have only IMSS and they can afford private insurance.
