Kainat’s surgery was a success
Kainat Khalid's Story
Fifteen years old Kainat Khalid, a resident of Karachi has been suffering from pain and ear discharge for the last seven years. Upon consultation and going through multiple diagnostic tests, she was diagnosed with Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM). Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media (CSOM) is defined as a perforated tympanic membrane with persistent drainage from the middle ear for more than 2-6 weeks. After the diagnosis was done, to treat this she was advised to get a Tympanoplasty done. Tympanoplasty is a surgery to repair the eardrum. The eardrum is a thin layer of tissue that vibrates in response to sound. Therefore, she was admitted to Patel hospital. Her surgery was performed by Dr. Nabeel Humayun on 17-09-2021. She was discharged after two days of hospital stay in a stable condition. Kainat has now been cured.
