Najma Begum's Story
50-year-old Najma Begum had been ignoring the uneasiness and pain in her chest for almost two years now. She suspected that she had a problem in her heart but kept quiet because she did not want to become a burden on her family. When the pain worsened, she finally decided to go to a doctor in Lahore.
After a complete medical checkup, the doctor advised an angiography after which he diagnosed her condition as triple vessel disease (TVD). She was advised CABG – open heart surgery. Triple vessel disease is an aggravated form of coronary artery disease (CAD) which develops when the key vessels supplying blood to the heart get damaged. A hefty amount of money is required for this surgery which her family cannot afford. She is taking the prescribed medicines but still feels excessive discomfort while breathing.
Najma’s elder son works as a receptionist in a private hospital and earns only PKR 20,000 per month. The whole family depends on him. After listening to her issue, a family member recommended that she should visit our office.
“We visited multiple hospitals for my mother’s surgery. All of them were charging too much. Our family’s financial situation does not allow us to go through with the surgery. It is heartbreaking for me to see my mother in pain. I feel very helpless”. – Najma’s son.
