Muhammad Yahya's Story
Muhammad Yahya, aged 7 years, hails from Sargodha and is suffering from Hirschsprung’s Disease since birth and has now been advised to undergo Duhamel Pull Through procedure. When Muhammad Yahya was 9 months old he underwent colostomy for intestinal obstruction. Hirschsprung’s disease is a condition affecting the large intestine where intestinal nerve cells fail to develop properly. It causes intestinal obstruction causing constipation and creating problems with passing stool. The condition is present at birth as a result of missing ganglion cells in the muscles of the infant’s colon. The suggested treatment is usually a pull-through procedure in which the diseased segment of the intestine is removed and the healthy portion is pulled down to the anus. Muhammad Yahya, has been advised Duhamel Pull Through procedure which his parents can not afford. His father shares Muhammad Yahya’s journey accompanied with his ailment in the following words:
“Upon his birth, our son was diagnosed with this disease. He was nine months old when he was operated on. Doctors advised another surgery but our poverty did not allow us to. My son is now seven years old and I still can not afford the procedure. I am a salesman and I earn PRK. 20,000 a month. I support a family of five members including my wife and three children. I want to see Muhammad Yahya as healthy and happy as his other siblings.”
