Muhammad Ihtisham's Story
Thirteen-year-old Muhammad Ihtisham hails from the Mardan district of the country and suffers from the painful condition of chronic tonsillitis. For those of you who cannot relate to Muhammad Ihtisham’s pain, chronic tonsillitis refers to a persistent infection of the tonsils. The infectious cycle keeps on repeating, which leads to the formation of crypts in the tonsils. Consequently, foul-smelling spots accumulate in these crypts. A year has elapsed since Muhammad Ihtisham first felt what it feels like to be a victim of tonsillitis. Symptomatic treatment doesn’t seem to be working at this point of the infection, a stage that necessitates the patient undergoing a tonsillectomy.
Tonsillectomy refers to a surgical procedure in which tonsils are removed. It may sound as if the process is too painful, however, the operation is not likely to cause the patient too much pain. It is a scheduled surgical procedure with a recovery time of a couple of days. Now, there is no doubt about the effectiveness of the procedure, but the fact that it will cost the patient a fair bit of fortune cannot be ignored either. Sort of dilemma that Muhammad Ihtisham and his family are trapped in right now.
“I stitch clothes to support our seven-membered family (says Ihtisham’s mother) and everyone knows that is NOT enough. The maximum I make is 11,000 PKR/ month, and managing provisions in this scant amount is as tough as it gets. Ihtisham’s father left us, and now I have to see my son suffer from pain. Sometimes, life is just not fair”
