Samson Naseer's Story
30-year-old Samson Naseer’s life has been made miserable by the presence of renal and ureteral stones. To describe Samson’s condition more specifically, he has left Staghorn renal and right ureteric stones. Ureteric stones are essentially kidney stones by nature, they are termed ureteric because they move from kidney to ureter. It sounds painful enough only reading about kidney stones, but to have them moved to the ureter is a whole different level of pain that only Samson can relate with. However, thanks to procedures like nephrolithotomy and ureteroscopy, Samson’s problem can be resolved.
Nephrolithotomy, in case you don’t know much about it, is a surgical procedure that is used to remove kidney stones. A small wound is inflicted, and then through that incision, the troublesome stones are removed. Samson has been recommended left nephrolithotomy for his left StagHorn stones. And for the right ureteric stones, Samson has been advised ureteroscopy. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an endoscope is used to remove the ureteral stones. But there is a glitch. Both these surgeries are likely to cost Samson a fortune. And Samson’s financial condition is not stable enough to afford these procedures!
“It has been a year since I first felt this terrible pain, and life has not been the same since. It has affected my life in a manner that I cannot even put into words. A pain that never seems to leave me anymore. Doctors say that my conditions can be treated alright. But how do I afford the treatment in the first place? All that I earn by working at a local petrol pump amounts to a mere 15,000 PKR. Do you honestly expect me to provide for a family of five and manage my two surgeries in this amount?’‘

Samson Naseer's Story
Samson Naseer, 30 years old, suffered from bilateral loin pain and burning sensation during micturition. On medical consultation, he was diagnosed with a ureteric stone on the right side and a staghorn stone on the left side of his kidney. The doctor advised a nephrolithotomy and JJ stenting for the left side and ureteroscopy (URS) with intra-corporeal lithotripsy (ICL) for the right side. For this purpose, Samson was admitted in Akram Medical Complex and the procedure was performed by Dr. Faisal Zaeem Ahmed on 30.11.2020. His left nephrolithotomy was done which took longer because of the large stone size and the second procedure for right ureter was not done. Samson stayed in the hospital for four days and was discharged in a stable condition. He is slowly recovering and getting back to his normal routine.
“My kidney stones have been removed successfully. This would have a significant impact on my quality of life. Now, I am waiting for my second procedure with high hopes”.- Samson told us
