Nadia Ali, a 30-year-old resident of Thatta, has been suffering from nasal obstruction and headache for the last five years. The doctor diagnosed it as left Antrochoanal polyps (ACP). ACP are benign lesions that arise from the mucosa of the maxillary sinus, grow into the maxillary sinus and reach the choana, with nasal obstruction being their main symptom. Moreover, she suffers from right nasal adhesions. Nasal adhesions are abnormal tissue bridges between adjacent mucosal surfaces, particularly between the septum and components of the lateral nasal wall.
To treat this condition, the doctor has advised Nadia to undergo a surgery for the excision of right nasal adhesions and Caldwell-Luc operation for the removal of left sided Polyps.
Unfortunately, Nadia’s family cannot afford the hefty cost of the above mentioned procedures. Nadia’s husband is the sole earner in the family. He works as a laborer on daily wages and hardly manages to earn PKR 15000 per month. With this income, he barely manages the household expenses. Therefore, he is in no position to arrange his wife’s treatment. He told us:
“For the last five years, my wife has been in so much pain. We went to a lot of hospitals but my wife is still waiting to receive the treatment she needs. Transparent Hands is our only hope now. Whoever is reading this, I request you to please donate for my wife’s treatment.”
After a lot of distress, Nadia’s family has registered her case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to help her as much as we can. But, we won’t be able to do that without your help. Donate for Nadia’s Excision surgery.
