Akhtar Jahan's Story
Akhtar Jahan is going through a painful and uncomfortable condition called a hernia. It causes visible swelling and pressure in her abdomen. If she doesn’t get treatment, it can lead to serious problems like strangulation and bowel blockage. Unfortunately, she can’t afford the surgery costs by herself. Your kind contribution can help her get the necessary surgery to improve her quality of life. Please donate for Akhtar Jahan’s mesh hernioplasty and make a positive impact on her life.
Akhtar Jahan, a 53-year-old resident of Lahore, has developed a painful and enlarged lump at the site of open cholecystectomy for the last twenty years. She went to the local hospital to visit the general surgeon. After a thorough evaluation and diagnostic tests, she was diagnosed with a large incisional hernia. The doctor advised her to undergo mesh hernioplasty. It is a surgical procedure used to repair a hernia. A hernia occurs when an organ or tissue pushes through a weak spot in the surrounding muscle. During a mesh hernioplasty, a surgeon places a synthetic mesh material over the weakened area to provide support and reinforce the tissue. This helps to prevent the hernia from recurring and allows the damaged tissue to heal.
She lives with her husband and three children in a small house. Her husband is a laborer and earns only PKR 12,000 per month. They are living hand to mouth and therefore cannot afford the surgery. Akhtar Jahan said in a depressed tone:
“I have been going through intense discomfort due to a hernia, and it’s making it really hard for me to do my daily tasks and take care of my family. I’ve tried my best to deal with it, but it’s getting worse, and now I need help to afford the surgery that can fix it.”
