Muhammad Ali’s TURP+Cystoscopy
Muhammad Ali's Story
Before diving into the grim details of Muhammad Ali’s illness, we want you to know that you can ease his pain by giving a donation for his surgery. Please donate for Muhammad Ali’s TURP+Cystoscopy
Muhammad Ali, aged 70 years, a resident of district Lahore, suffered from recurrent episodes of lower abdominal pain and LUTS. He went to the doctor for his checkup. His examination and reports revealed that he is suffering from Bladder outlet obstruction. Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms or LUTS is a group of urinary symptoms triggered by an obstruction, abnormality, infection or irritation of the urethra, bladder, bladder neck, urinary sphincter and prostate. The doctor advised him for the surgical procedures called TURP and Cystoscopy. In transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), a combined visual and surgical instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the urethra where it’s surrounded by prostate tissue. An electrical loop cuts away excess prostate tissue to improve urine flow.
Muhammad Ali’s family cannot afford the hefty cost of this surgery. His son is the sole breadwinner of the family and he earns only PKR. 25,000 per month. In these circumstances, managing the monthly expenses of eight members of his family becomes very difficult for him. He cannot afford his father’s surgery.
“This pain has left me pinned to my bed. I cannot go to work. My son is working to put food on the table for eight people. He has a small shop. Affording this surgery is out of the question for him.”

Muhammad Ali's Story
Muhamamd Ali, a 70-year-old resident of Lahore, had been suffering from Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) for the last nine months. Upon consultation, he was diagnosed with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). The doctor advised Ali to undergo a TURP as a lasting cure. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgery to remove parts of the prostate gland. For this procedure, he was sent to Life Hospital to get his procedure done by Dr. Umair Afzal on 29-11-2021. He was discharged after two days of the surgery in a satisfactory condition. He is now on his road to recovery. Keep donating to help more people in need.
