Muhammad Sharif's Story
Old age is a hindrance in a person’s life and just like adversity old age never comes alone. It always brings its consequences with it. Oftentimes, these consequences are far worse than the problem itself. Same is the case with 76-year-old Muhammad Sharif who has been suffering from an enlarged prostate for the past one year. Initially, the doctor prescribed some medicines but they did not provide any significant relief.
Muhammad Sharif has been bedridden for the last four months as his symptoms drastically increased to a point of no return. Now, considering his age and gravity of his condition, the doctor has advised Muhammad Sharif to undergo Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) – a procedure in which the enlarged tissue is removed through electrocautery or sharp dissection.
Muhammad Sharif’s elder son is the sole earner of the family. 5 family members including Muhammad Sharif are financially dependent on him. With a family of 5 to take care of on a monthly income of PKR 14000, he is in no position to bear the expense of his father’s treatment.
“In the last four months, I have seen my father in his worst condition. He has been wailing in pain and I am unable to do anything about it. I tried saving money for his surgery but it is only possible if I starve my own family. Right now, we only have two options, starvation or death. I am at my wit’s end, please help me.” -Muhammad Sharif’s son
