Rubina Asghar, aged 35 years, lives in Lahore. Her life was fine 1 year ago. But one day she felt a severe backache. Soon she went to a government hospital for a checkup. The doctors gave her symptomatic treatment but the pain was persisting and increasing day by day. She went to the doctor again and after some x-rays and an MRI scan, the doctor gave her 3 weeks’ medicine which was also unable to solve the problem. Then the doctor referred her to a neurosurgeon and after evaluation, she was diagnosed to have been suffering from PIVD. In PIVD the prolapsed intervertebral disc, the disc material herniates into the spinal canal compressing nerve roots and causing pain. In Rubina’s case, her L1-L2 has been impacted. The incompetence of the posterior longitudinal ligament can be a result of vertical spinal instability or can be a result of an acute stretch related to sudden exertion or bending. The neurosurgeon, therefore, advised her to undergo Laminectomy and Discectomy. This surgery is done to decompress the disc and relieve pain and help increase mobility.
Rubina Asghar’s husband is a laborer with a monthly income of PKR. 22,000 and a family of five members to feed. Under these circumstances, he cannot afford an expensive surgery.
“My children keep asking me why our mother is not getting well? I don’t know what to say to them. Even if I save money for my whole life, I would still not be able to pay for my wife’s surgery.” -Rubina Asghar’s Husband
