Saood Iqbal's Story
Before you read the gory details of Saood’s health defects. Kindly know that only your help can restore his health, and donate for Saood’s ileostomy reversal. At first glance, Saood seems fine, just like any other kid. But, Saood Iqbal is in pain and discomfort most of the time. When Saood was two years of age, he acquired typhoid perforation after a high fever and abdominal pain. This is a complication of typhoid fever that causes leakage of intestinal contents into the abdomen.
To save Saood from further complications, the doctors performed an ileostomy. Now, Saood has turned six and he will have to undergo an ileostomy reversal surgery. A surgery which will restore Saood’s bowel movements to normal. We urge you to donate for Saood’s ileostomy reversal to ease his life.
The cost of the surgery is beyond his parents’ affordability. Therefore, Saood’s parents have circled back and forth to various local hospitals in search of affordable treatment. However, their quest bore no fruit. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, none of the local hospitals is taking his case. Saood’s father is the sole earner of the family. He hardly earns PKR 12000 per month. In this measly income, it is nearly impossible for him to keep the household running. Let alone, arrange for his son’s surgery at a private hospital.
“Everywhere I go I hear the same thing over and over again. They say they cannot do my son’s operation because wards are full of corona patients. This corona has pulled the plug on our entire lives. I cannot see my son in pain anymore. Please help us and donate for Saood’s ileostomy reversal.” –Saood Iqbal’s Father
At last, Saood’s parents have registered his case with Transparent Hands. We are determined to get Saood healthy and back on his feet as soon as possible. But, it would not be possible without your donations, however small they may be. Please donate for Saood’s ileostomy reversal and help us ease his life.

Saood Iqbal's Story
Saood Iqbal, 6 years old, had his ileostomy made after an emergency surgery for typhoid perforation. Later, his doctors advised surgery to reverse this ileostomy. His surgery was done in Lahore Care Hospital on 09-12-2020 by Dr. Sajid Iqbal Nayyer. Saood’s intestinal continuity was restored by ileostomy closure. His postoperative recovery was complicated when he did not move his bowel. He was observed and investigated for this. It was found out that he had adhesion obstruction and the doctors decided to explore him surgically. He was operated in the same hospital admission on 12-12-2020 once again. Saood’s ileostomy reversal site had healed well and his coiled intestine was straightened during this surgery. He recovered well in eight days of his hospital stay and was discharged in perfect health.
