Ashfaq Ahmed's Story
Life has not been very easy for Ashfaq Ahmad. Currently, Ashfaq Ahmad is unable to put weight on her legs without wincing in pain. But, there is still hope. Your donations can get Ashfaq Ahmad back upon his legs again. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ashfaq Ahmed’s hip-replacement surgery as much as you can.
For the last fourteen years, Ashfaq Ahmed has been suffering from bilateral AVN of femoral heads. It caused him great pain and discomfort. Later, it restricted his ability to walk as well. Upon consultation, Ashfaq Ahmed was diagnosed with this condition. This AVN is the death of bone tissue secondary to loss of blood supply.
The only option to treat this defect is total hip replacement surgery. It is a surgery to replace the damaged hip joint. During the process, the surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint (prosthesis). At first, the doctor will perform the surgery on his left leg. Later, when the left leg recovers, it will be performed on the right leg. While this surgery promises a pain-free life to Ashfaq Ahmed, it is certainly not an affordable procedure.
Unfortunately, Ashfaq Ahmed cannot afford the hefty cost of a hip replacement surgery. Due to his debilitating illness, Ashfaq Ahmed has been unable to work. He financially relies on his wife, who works as a house help and hardly earns PKR 5000 per month. In these circumstances, they are in no position to arrange for Ashfaq’s surgery. Ashfaq told us:
“It has been fourteen years that I have been taking painkillers for this intense pain. Now, at this point, they have stopped working as well. God knows what will become of this pain.”
After a lot of distress, Ashfaq Ahmed has registered his case with Transparent Hands. We have assured him that we would arrange for his surgery as soon as possible. But, that won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Ashfaq Ahmed’s hip-replacement as much as you can.
