Begum Jan's Story
Before you dive into the gory details of Begum Jan’s ailments, please know that you can help her. Your donation, however small it may be, will relieve Begum Jaan of the pain that has put her life to a halt. Therefore, we request that you please donate for Begum Jan’s Cystoscopy as much as you can.
For the past two years, Begum Jan has been feeling pain during urination. When the problem persisted for weeks, Begum Jan consulted a doctor who prescribed her some medicines for temporary relief. Moreover, the doctor told her that Begum Jan has been suffering from Urethritis. It is an inflammation of the urethra. Pain with urination is the main symptom of Urethritis. In most long standing cases it is accompanied by Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). It occurs when there is a blockage at the base of bladder neck. Such a blockage reduces or stops the flow of urine into the urethra.
To move towards the treatment, the doctor has advised Begum Jan to undergo a Cystoscopy. Cystoscopy is the endoscopy of the urinary bladder via the urethra. It is carried out with a cystoscope to diagnose the ailment.
Unfortunately, Begum Jan’s family cannot afford the hefty cost of a Cystoscopy. Begum Jan’s husband passed away a while ago. Therefore, she is financially dependent on her son, who hardly manages to earn PKR 30,000 per month. With a family of six to raise in this income, he cannot save for his mother’s surgery. He told us:
“At first, mother did not even tell us about her problem. Perhaps she felt ashamed of it. Little does she know that hundreds of people are ready to help her through Transparent Hands.”
After a lot of distress, Begum Jan’s family has requested Transparent Hands for help. We are determined to help her get better as soon as we can. However, it will not be possible without your help. Therefore, we request that you please donate for Begum Jan’s Cystoscopy as much as you can. Donate now!

Begum Jan's Story
Begum Jan, aged 87 years, suffered from urinary retention. On thorough medical examination, the doctor diagnosed her with bladder outlet obstruction and advised cystoscopy. For this purpose, Begum was admitted to Maryam Memorial Hospital and her cystoscopy was done. After cystoscopy, her excision of urethral caruncle along with urethral dilation was performed by Dr. Ahmed Rehman on 15.06.2021. She stayed in the hospital for two days and was discharged in a stable condition. Begum feels that there is no longer any obstruction and her urination has improved a great deal since she has been treated.
