Ashra Bibi's Story
Ashra Bibi, 38 years old, has been suffering from swelling in her thyroid gland for almost 4 years now. She initially treated her condition with medicines but gradually, it has increased in size. She is now experiencing pain at the base of her neck and breathing difficulties. She is also unable to eat properly due to difficulty in swallowing.
Ashra Bibi went to her local hospital for treatment where she was diagnosed to have a huge multinodular goiter and advised her to undergo a subtotal thyroidectomy surgery for permanent relief. Unfortunately, she does not have the money to pay for her expensive surgery and the associated medical bills. Ashra’s husband earns around 19,000-20,000 PKR a month by working as a laborer. He struggles to meet just the basic day-to-day needs of his wife and son on this meager income and is not in the position to fund his wife’s surgery. Hence, Ashra has appealed to Transparent Hands for help.

38-year-old Ashra Bibi was diagnosed with a huge multinodular goiter and advised subtotal thyroidectomy. She was admitted in the hospital and the surgery was performed by Dr. Ahmad Fawad on 28-09-2020 at Lahore Care Hospital. In this procedure, most of her thyroid gland was removed except for a small thyroid remnant for preservation of the thyroid function. Ashra remained in the hospital for two days and was discharged in a stable condition. She feels much better now and has resumed her day-to-day activities.
