Razia Begum's Story
Before you dive into Razia Begum’s tale of woes, we want to know that you can help her get rid of this pain. The only thing standing between Razia Begum and the surgery she needs is financial constraints. Therefore, we request you to please donate for Razia’s Hernia Repair as much as you can.
Fifty-six-year-old Razia Begum has been in a perpetual state of discomfort for the last three months. Along with discomfort, she has been facing severe abdominal pain. After consultation, she was diagnosed with Paraumbilical Hernia. A Paraumbilical Hernia is a hole in the connective tissue of the abdominal wall in the midline with close approximation to the umbilicus.
To treat this condition, the doctor advised her to undergo mesh repair surgery. But, due to limited financial resources, Razia Begum was not in a position to arrange for the major surgery. Therefore, Razia Begum resorted to medication for temporary relief. Now, surgery has become crucial for Razia Begum. Mesh repair is probably the safest way of treating a hernia. Surgical meshes are made of biological material and are placed in a manner such that they support the damaged tissue. While there is no doubt about the effectiveness of this surgical procedure, it is an expensive procedure. Razia Begum’s son is the sole earner of the family. He works as a manual laborer on daily wages and hardly manages to earn PKR 18,000 per month. With this income, he is in no position to arrange for his mother’s surgery. He told us
“Whoever is reading this, I request you to please help me and my distressed mother who has been waiting for her hernia repair surgery.”

Razia Begum's Story
Razia Begum, a 56-year-old lady, was a known case of Diabetes and Hypertension. She was suffering from Painful and Irreducible Paraumbilical Hernia for the last 3 months. She was admitted for advised Mesh Hernioplasty in Maryam Memorial Hospital, Rawalpindi. She was worked up and found to have cardiac failure for which cardiac evaluation was required to proceed for major surgery. Her treatment was started and complete investigations were done to optimize her condition. Her condition improved with medications and the advised surgery was not possible because of the high risk involved in Anesthesia. So she was discharged on 13-01-22 on medication after three days of hospital stay. Her hernia pain has also subsided and Razia feels better after her treatment.
