Muhammad Saddique 's Story
Muhammad Saddique, aged 55 years, a resident of Zila Qasur, suffered from intense abdominal pain and discomfort. He also had a lump in the central abdominal region. When the pain did not subside, he decided to consult a doctor. On medical examination, Saddqiue was diagnosed to have a paraumbilical hernia. The doctor advised its surgical correction. Saddique underwent surgery and his hernia was fixed. This happened around four years ago.
One year after the surgery, the lump reappeared and started causing abdominal pain again. Saddique decided to not consult a doctor as he had been operated on already. However, as the pain increased over the span of three years, he decided to go to a local hospital. He was diagnosed with a recurrent paraumbilical hernia in his central abdominal region. The doctor advised mesh hernioplasty for him. In this surgical procedure, a mesh patch made of synthetic material is sewn over weakened abdominal tissue. This prevents the recurrence of hernias.
Saddique wanted a permanent solution to his problem but he did not have the means to pay for his surgery. He works as a labourer and earns only PKR 10,000 per month. In this small amount, the monthly expenditures of his entire household need to be managed.
Desperate, he visited multiple local hospitals for an appointment but was not facilitated. A doctor advised him to visit our office. He immediately paid us a visit. We registered his case. Saddique expressed his gratitude in the following words:
“I have been suffering from my hernia problem for years now. When the Transparent Hands team agreed to conduct my surgery, I was very relieved. They were my very last hope.”
