Farzana Riaz's Story
Before you dive into Farzana’s tale of woes, please know that we can help her. Your donations, however small they may be, will help us end Farzana’s pain. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Farzana’s Cholecystectomy as much as you can.
For the last two months, thirty-five years old Farzana Riaz had been feeling pain in her abdomen. Along with the pain, she had been feeling nausea and vomiting as well. When these symptoms persisted, Farzana went for a checkup. After a couple of diagnostic tests, Farzana was found to have bilateral small renal stones and symptomatic gallstones. Cholelithiasis or the gallstones formed in the biliary tract in the gallbladder. The reason behind these stones is the excessive cholesterol levels in the bile. Farzana suffers from lithotripsy as well, which she has managed with painkillers.
To treat her condition, the doctor has advised Farzana to undergo lithotripsy for renal stones and Cholecystectomy for her gallstones. Cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder. While the surgery offers a permanent solution to Farzana’s problem, there is no denying that it is quite an expensive medical procedure.
Unfortunately, Farzana Riaz and her family cannot afford to arrange the surgery. Her husband is the sole earner of the family. He works as a painter and hardly earns PKR 20000 per month. He told us:
“Due to my wife’s worsening condition, our whole family is extremely distressed. She is the center of our entire household. She is the liveliest person in our family. Everything seems very sad without her as she holds everything together. We all request you to please help her get healthy.”
With the help of their doctor, Farzana Riaz has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We wish to get her happy and healthy as soon as we can. But it won’t be possible without your help. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Farzana’s Cholecystectomy as much as you can. Donate now!

Farzana Riaz's Story
Farzana Riaz, aged 35 years, suffered from intense pain on the right side of her abdomen for the last three months. She also developed complete intolerance for fatty foods. Along with these symptoms, she was previously being treated with lithotripsy for bilateral renal stones. Initially, she ignored her symptoms but as they aggravated, she was left with no option but to seek medical consultation. She consulted multiple physicians and on complete workup, she was diagnosed with symptomatic gallstones. The doctor advised surgical treatment for her. For this purpose, Farzana was admitted to Lahore Care Hospital and her laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed by Dr. Ahmed Fawad on 08.06.2021. Her gallbladder was removed through a non-invasive procedure. Farzana had to stay in the hospital for one day and she was discharged in a stable condition. Her frequent episodes of sharp abdominal pain have ended since she had the surgery.
