Asma Arif 's Story
Asma Arif, a 48-year-old devoted mother residing in Lahore, has faced six long years of excruciating abdominal pain, persistent discomfort, and recurring episodes of nausea and vomiting. Despite seeking symptomatic treatments, her condition steadily worsened over time, causing immense distress. Determined to find a solution, Asma decided to consult a general surgeon, hoping for answers to her debilitating symptoms.
Following a series of tests and an ultrasound, the cause of Asma’s suffering was finally revealed: gallstones. With this diagnosis, an open cholecystectomy, the surgical removal of the gallbladder, was recommended as the most suitable course of action to alleviate her symptoms and restore her quality of life.
During this challenging period, Transparent Hands registered Asma’s case and pledged to raise the necessary funds to cover her surgical expenses. With the generous support of donors like you, Asma was admitted to the Lahore Care Hospital, where Dr. Ahmed Fawad performed the surgery on the 20th of September 2023. The operation proved to be a success, offering Asma a glimmer of hope amidst her prolonged suffering.
After two days of post-operative care and monitoring, Asma was discharged from the hospital, her condition showed signs of improvement. The expert care provided by Dr. Ahmed Fawad and the diligent medical staff at Lahore Care Hospital played a significant role in ensuring her comfort and facilitating a smooth recovery.
The support she received not only enabled her to undergo the much-needed cholecystectomy but also offered her renewed hope and relief from years of pain and discomfort.
With deep gratitude, Asma expresses her heartfelt appreciation to Transparent Hands and the compassionate donors who made her journey to recovery possible. Their generosity not only provided her with a path to healing but also restored her faith in humanity’s kindness and compassion.
