Khawara Nawaz's Story
Khawara Nawaz, aged 10 years, suffered from discharge of fecal contents through her genital orifice since birth. On medical consultation, she was diagnosed with an anorectal malformation called rectovestibular fistula. The doctor advised her to get a colostomy stoma made before definitive surgery for rectovestibular fistula. For this reason, Khawara was admitted to Akram Medical Complex and the colostomy was performed by Dr. M. Bilal Mirza on 23.04.2021. She stayed in the hospital for two days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Khawara’s road to recovery has started since she has undergone first stage out of three corrective surgeries.
