Naseem Jan's Story
Naseem Jan, a 46-year-old resident of Karachi, had been enduring relentless episodes of upper abdominal pain for several months. Frustrated by the lack of relief, she sought medical attention at a local clinic. The attending doctor prescribed painkillers in an attempt to alleviate her suffering. However, despite her adherence to the medication, the pain persisted, prompting her to seek a second opinion at another hospital.
At the hospital, Naseem underwent a series of diagnostic tests to determine the cause of her symptoms. The results revealed the presence of gallstones, a condition known as cholelithiasis. It became clear that surgical intervention was necessary for her recovery. The doctor recommended a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the gallbladder.
Finding themselves in a difficult financial situation, Naseem’s family reached out to Transparent Hands, we readily registered her case, and began their efforts to secure the necessary funds for her surgery.
With the generous support of donors, we successfully raised the required funds, enabling Naseem to receive the medical attention she desperately needed. She was admitted to Murshid Hospital, Karachi, where the skilled surgeon, Dr. Nida, performed the laparoscopic cholecystectomy on 13-10-2023.
The operation was a success, and the source of her pain and discomfort was successfully removed. Thanks to the expertise of Dr. Nida and the compassionate care provided by the medical staff at the hospital, Naseem’s recovery progressed smoothly. After just one day of post-operative observation, she was deemed fit for discharge.
Naseem and her family are overwhelmed with gratitude for the invaluable assistance they received from Transparent Hands and the selfless donors who made her surgery possible. Their kindness and generosity have not only relieved Naseem of her physical pain but have also lifted a tremendous burden off the shoulders of her family.
