Musa Bashir's Story
Musa Bashir, aged five, a resident of Sheikhupura was a healthy boy. Three years ago a lump formed in his right groin and recently he has experienced severe pain and swelling in his lower abdomen. Upon medical examination, the doctors revealed that he is suffering from right Inguinal Hernia. An Inguinal Hernia occurs when tissue, such as a part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The said bulge can be painful while coughing, bending over or lifting heavy objects. Though Inguinal Hernia isn’t necessarily dangerous, it requires due treatment as it may however, lead to life-threatening complications. Inguinal Hernia repair, that is a common surgical procedure termed, Herniotomy, is advised by the doctors. Herniotomy is carried out under general anaesthesia. A small incision is made in the groin on the side of the hernia after which the hernial contents are pushed back and the defect is fixed. Now that Musa Bashir is expected to undergo Herniotomy, financial constraint is hindering his way to a healthy life. His father shares their story in the following words:
“I am a gardener. I earn PKR. 15,000 per month. For the past few months I have seen my son churning in pain. I have circled back and forth to numerous hospitals. After a recent examination, the doctor advised my son to have an operation. I am living in my father’s house with my mother, wife and three children. I have to provide for them and in these circumstances I am failing to produce money for the surgical procedure. Visit to Transparent Hands has shown me a ray of hope. I hope to see my son enjoying his childhood like any other healthy child.”
