Chanda Fatima 's Story
Chanda Fatima, a 38-year-old resident of Khanewal, had been experiencing persistent upper abdominal pain, vomiting, and indigestion for the past two months. Seeking relief, she initially visited a local clinic, where the doctor prescribed some medications to alleviate the pain. Unfortunately, the prescribed treatment did not provide the desired results, prompting Chanda to seek a second opinion at another hospital.
She visited the local hospital, where she underwent a series of diagnostic tests to determine the underlying cause of her symptoms. After a thorough evaluation, the doctor diagnosed her with gallstones, a condition known as cholelithiasis. Gallstones are hardened deposits that form in the gallbladder and can cause severe pain and digestive issues. In her case, the presence of these gallstones was responsible for her persistent discomfort. To address her condition, the doctor advised an open cholecystectomy, a surgical procedure involving the removal of the gallbladder. Due to her limited resources, she was unable to pay for the surgical costs. She requested financial support from Transparent Hands.
She was admitted to the Lahore Care Hospital, where her operation was performed by Dr. Ahmed Fawad on 15-05-2023. During her three-day stay at the hospital, she received exceptional care from the dedicated hospital staff. They provided her with a comfortable room and ensured that she received the necessary medications and treatment to aid her recovery. The medical professionals closely monitored her condition, managing her pain and addressing any concerns she had.
Chanda is immensely grateful to the donors who contributed to her surgery. Their generosity made it possible for her to access the medical care she needed. With the successful completion of the surgery, Chanda’s gallstones were removed, providing her relief from the debilitating symptoms she had been experiencing for the past two months. She can now enjoy a better quality of life, free from the pain, vomiting, and indigestion that had previously affected her. Donate now to help more patients like Chanda Fatima.
