Fozia Muneer's Story
Fozia Muneer, a 48-year-old resident of Lahore, has been facing a series of health challenges that have turned her life upside down. Fozia has been battling abdominal pain and coping with a distressing lump in her abdominal region. To worsen matters, she was also diagnosed with uterine fibroids and an ovarian cyst, adding to her discomfort and anxiety.
Fozia sought medical advice and underwent thorough evaluations, which led her to the doorsteps of a skilled and compassionate doctor. The doctor recommended a comprehensive set of lab tests and, based on the results, suggested that Fozia undergo surgery. On August 28, 2023, she underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy, a procedure aimed at removing her uterus along with affected ovary and alleviating her abdominal pain. However, during the surgery, an unforeseen complication emerged: a rectal perforation was discovered, necessitating the creation of a colostomy—a surgical procedure that diverts the normal flow of waste through the colon to an opening in the abdominal wall.
Now, Fozia faces another challenging phase in her journey towards recovery. Her medical team has advised her to undergo an exploratory laparotomy, a surgical procedure that involves opening the abdomen to assess and treat any further complications. Additionally, the team aims to close the colostomy, allowing Fozia’s digestive system to resume its natural course.
This creation of sigmoid loop colostomy has undeniably created immense physical and emotional burdens for Fozia. It has affected her ability to carry out routine activities, strained her relationships, and placed significant financial stress on her family. Unfortunately, her husband is unable to bear the costs of the upcoming surgeries, leaving Fozia in need of urgent financial assistance.
Fozia humbly implores the support of generous donors:
“Dear donors, I find myself in a challenging situation, battling not only my health issues but also the financial burden it has brought upon my family. Your kind contribution will help me reclaim my health and restore normalcy to my life.”
