Komal Mushtaq's Story
Komal Mushtaq, 14 years old, was suffering from cyclical lower abdominal pain since puberty but was not getting her menses. She was diagnosed to have urogenital sinus, ectopic ureter and bicornuate uterus with a closed vaginal orifice. Her vaginoplasty was done during the first stage of treatment. Later on, her ureterocystostomy was carried out. Urinary discharge from her genital tract still persisted, however. After further check-up, she was found to have vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) and was advised another surgery to repair it. Her cystoscopy and VVF repair was done at Akram Medical Complex, on 03-12-19, by Dr Faisal Zaeem. She recovered well during the four days of hospital stay and was discharged in good health with follow up advice.
