Abbas Khan's Story
Abbas Khan, 65 years old, has suffered from long standing pain in both his knees. The pain kept getting worse and his knees became swollen as well. Without paying much attention to his current state, Abbas kept working and had resumed his daily activities. With time, the pain increased and forced him to stop working completely. The pain has reached the point where he is unable to walk even to the bathroom by himself and sleep peacefully at night. So far, he has managed his condition with pain medicines he took from nearby clinics but there is no sign of any improvement.
“I have experienced a lot of things in my life. But this pain is something that I wouldn’t even wish upon my enemies. I have a family of 10 that I have to look after; daughters who are still my responsibility and have to get married. I cannot give up and become bedridden.”– Abbas Khan
Wanting his misery to end, Abbas Khan eventually visited a hospital where the doctor ran a few tests and told him that he was suffering from bilateral osteoarthritis (grade 4) in which the joint space between bones of his knees is dramatically reduced – the cartilage is almost completely gone, leaving the joint stiff and possibly immobile. He told Abbas that the only solution to his condition was to get a total knee replacement surgery.
Abbas Khan knew he couldn’t afford the surgery and returned home completely disheartened. They are a family of 10 people living in a house that was given to him by his parents. God doesn’t let a single prayer go answered and luckily Abbas Khan found out about Transparent Hands and how they help people get free surgeries. He contacted their office immediately and got registered on priority.

Abbas Khan's Story
Abbas Khan, 65 years old, was suffering from knee joint pain and was diagnosed with bilateral osteoarthritis of the knees. The doctor recommended a knee replacement surgery of the left knee since it was more affected and caused more pain. Abbas was admitted in Irfan General Hospital and his left total knee replacement was performed by Dr. Akhtar Hussain on 28.10.2020. He stayed in the hospital for six days after osteoarthritic knee surgery and was discharged in a stable condition. His post-operative recovery is satisfactory.Review from Abbas Khan after his osteoarthritic knee surgery
“I had to tolerate excruciating pain in my knee joint as I could not afford the surgery. With your help, I was finally able to have the surgery which was prescribed to me. I feel much better now. My knee has started healing.”- Abbas Khan
