Azra Kousar's Story
Azra Kousar, a 43-year-old resident of Muzaffargarh, has been suffering from pain in the hip joints for the last 15 years. Initially, the doctor advised symptomatic treatment, but she did not recover. Her husband took her to a local hospital to consult a doctor, who suggested some diagnostic tests. After evaluating her reports, the doctor diagnosed her with Avascular Necrosis (AVN) of the hip joints. Avascular Necrosis is the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. If untreated, it may lead to tiny breaks in the bone, and the affected bone may collapse. The orthopedic surgeon advised her to undergo hip replacement surgery. Her first surgery was performed in August 2021 with the support of Transparent Hands. The orthopedic surgeon has now recommended hip replacement surgery on the left side.
Transparent Hands promptly registered her case and rallied the support of compassionate donors who recognized the significance of her condition and the life-altering impact that the surgery could have on Azra’s quality of life. Through the collective efforts of these generous souls, sufficient funds were raised to cover the expenses of her left hip replacement surgery.
With the funds secured, Azra Kousar was admitted to Bakhtawar Amin Teaching Hospital, Multan, where she underwent her second hip replacement surgery. The skilled hands of Dr. Adeel successfully performed the operation on 17-05-2023, alleviating Azra’s pain and offering her newfound hope for a brighter future. She was discharged from the hospital after four days of treatment.
Azra Kousar is currently anticipating a life in which she will no longer have to suffer from the debilitating pain that has plagued her for more than a decade. Azra Kousar owes an enormous debt of gratitude to each and every one of the donors who came together to make her road to recovery possible. Not only have their selfless contributions completely altered the course of her life, but they have also instilled in her a profound appreciation for the compassion and kindness that can be found in the world.
