Irshaad Bibi's Story
Irshaad Bibi, aged 52 years, suffered from intense pain in her upper abdominal area. She also suffered from nausea and indigestion from time to time. At a local hospital, she was treated for her symptoms and her ultrasound was carried out. She was found to have a polyp in her gallbladder. A polyp is a growth that can be benign or malignant. The surgeon advised a laparoscopic cholecystectomy for her. In this technique, the patient’s gallbladder is removed in a non-invasive manner.
Irshaad Bibi, however, hails from an underprivileged segment of society. Her husband works as a labourer and earns only PKR 300 per day. They are hardly able to make both ends meet in this income. Affording basic healthcare facilities is a luxury, consequently, paying for a surgery is completely out of question for them. Irshaad expressed her distress in the following words:
“I have been enduring pain for ten years now. Previously, I had to undergo a hysterectomy surgery. I hardly had time to recover from that procedure when the doctor diagnosed the problem in my gallbladder. How can we afford two surgeries back to back in our budget? I am tired and pessimistic at this point.”
A friend of Irshaad Bibi told the family about Transparent Hands. Her family immediately contacted our team and got her registered.
