Rasheeda Bibi's Story
Rasheeda, a 50-year-old resident of Karachi, Pakistan, had been silently enduring the pain and discomfort of bleeding during bowel movements and chronic constipation for the past eight months. Seeking relief, she turned to various local doctors, hoping to find a solution to her suffering. Unfortunately, the prescribed medications provided only temporary respite, leaving her in search of a more permanent remedy.
Determined to find a lasting solution to her condition, Rasheeda recently visited a local hospital for further medical assistance. After a thorough examination, the doctor recommended a lateral sphincterotomy surgery as the most viable and effective treatment option for her. This procedure involved the surgical division of the anal sphincter muscle, aiming to alleviate her symptoms and provide her with long-awaited relief.
However, Rasheeda faced a significant obstacle on her path to recovery – her financial circumstances. The cost of the surgery seemed insurmountable, casting a shadow of uncertainty over her hopes for a better quality of life. Realizing the gravity of her situation, Rasheeda reached out to Transparent Hands.
Transparent Hands swiftly responded to Rasheeda’s plea, recognizing the urgency of her situation and the impact that the surgery could have on her well-being. Through their collective efforts and the generosity of their donors, they ensured that Rasheeda could receive the medical care she so desperately needed.
She was admitted to Murshid Hospital, Karachi, where her operation was successfully performed by Dr. Nida on 15-11-2023. She was discharged from the hospital after one day. The procedure addressed the underlying issues causing Rasheeda’s symptoms, paving the way for a healthier and more comfortable future.
The successful operation not only alleviated her physical discomfort but also brought her peace of mind, knowing that she had taken a significant step towards regaining her quality of life. Rasheeda expresses her deepest gratitude to Transparent Hands and all the generous donors who made her surgery possible.
