Rafia Atah's Story
Rafia Atah has been fighting back pain in her liver for 6 months now. Gallstones were first sighted in her gall bladder in March and have increased in number ever since. Being a devoted mother and a hardworking housewife, she has tried her best to continue her daily responsibilities while tolerating the pain. But now her liver is enlarged and showing fatty texture. The pain has become unbearable, making it difficult for her to walk around. Her husband works at a warehouse on daily wages, and the amount suggested by the doctors for Rafia’s treatment is unmanageable for her husband. Public hospitals are always jam-packed and she has failed to get a bed there in her previous attempts. With all other doors of hope closed, Rafia has now turned to Transparent Hands for support. The growing pain might cross a limit soon that will be too much for her to bear. She wishes to get rid of it before her situation gets further worse. Help her get rid of these gall bladder stones before time runs out!
Rafia Atah's Story
Rafia Atah approached Transparent Hands on 11th August 2014 and was registered for gallstones removal treatment at Zainab Memorial Hospital. She had an appointment with Dr. Shehzad Alam, a skilled surgeon who offered laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, a safe and reliable procedure to remove the gallbladder stones from the body, before they enter the bile duct. Rafia was admitted in Zainab Memorial Hospital on 13th August and discharged the next day. She felt relaxed and cheerful when she was met the next day after the surgery. “I do feel much pain like before. The doctor suggested I need to rest for some days before continuing my chores at home. I am so thankful that I relied on you instead of going to a government hospital.” Rafia has been recalled for removal of stitches and a progress checkup after the surgery. We hope to meet her tomorrow!
