Ayesha Mehmood's Story
Ayesha Mahmood is a strong-willed 36-year-old resident of Gujrat. As a member of a joint family with 10 members, Ayesha carries the weight of multiple household responsibilities on her shoulders. However, her journey has been marked by health challenges and financial hardships. With a monthly income of just PKR 70,000, Ayesha finds herself struggling to make ends meet.
Over the past two years, Ayesha has endured recurring pain in her upper abdomen, accompanied by indigestion after eating fatty meals. 2 years ago she experienced a severe bout of pancreatitis that resulted in the formation of a pseudocyst. The pain and discomfort have made it increasingly difficult for her to fulfill her duties as a carer and support her family.
Ayesha’s doctors have recommended an exploratory laparotomy and cystogastrostomy, a surgical procedure that aims to alleviate her symptoms. This procedure involves an abdominal incision to investigate the underlying cause of her condition and create a connection between the pseudocyst and her stomach for proper drainage. It offers her hope for a healthier future, where she can regain control of her life and well-being.
In Ayesha’s own words,
“I am going through immense pain and suffering due to my health condition. The financial burden is overwhelming, and I cannot afford the surgery that will bring me relief and improve my quality of life. I humbly appeal for your support and kindness in helping me raise the funds needed for the procedure. Please donate today and be a part of my journey towards a healthier and happier future.”

Ayesha's Success Story of Exploratory Laparotomy and Cystogastrostomy
22 Jan 2024
Ayesha Mehmood, a determined 36-year-old from Gujrat, embarked on a journey towards relief from a recurring and distressing condition. For the past two years, Ayesha had been experiencing off-and-on pain in the epigastrium, as well as indigestion after consuming fatty meals. After recovering from an acute attack of pancreatitis, she developed a pancreatic pseudocyst, adding to her discomfort. Determined to find a solution, Ayesha sought medical advice, leading to a diagnosis of a pancreatic pseudocyst. This fluid-filled sac forms in the pancreas as a complication of pancreatitis.
On 21st November 2023, Ayesha was admitted to Lahore Care Hospital, ready to undergo the necessary surgical intervention. Under the expert care of Dr. Ahmed Fawad, a skilled surgeon, Ayesha underwent an exploratory laparotomy and cystogastrostomy. This comprehensive surgical procedure involved making an incision to explore the abdominal cavity, followed by the creation of a connection between the pseudocyst and the stomach to facilitate drainage and promote healing.
Throughout her hospital stay, Ayesha received exceptional care from the dedicated medical team at Lahore Care Hospital. The healthcare professionals closely monitored her condition, managed her pain, and ensured her comfort during the recovery process. Their expertise and compassionate support played a crucial role in Ayesha’s successful surgery and her subsequent discharge on 27th November 2023.
The success of Ayesha’s story would not have been possible without the support and generosity of the remarkable Transparent Hands donors.

Her unwavering spirit, coupled with the expertise of Dr. Ahmed Fawad and the generosity of the Transparent Hands donors, allowed her to overcome her physical challenges and embrace a healthier, more fulfilling life.
As Ayesha moves forward, free from the burden of the pancreatic pseudocyst and the associated pain, she carries with her a deep sense of gratitude and a renewed sense of hope.
