Kezabu is a widowed mother to three children, and shared that she lost her husband 20 years ago. She has worked hard to raise her children all by herself. Her two sons are now motorbike taxi operators and her only daughter is married and is small-scale farmer. Kezabu used to farm for a living but because of her condition, she no longer attends to her garden like she used to before. Currently, her only source of income is her small banana plantation. She sells off a bunch of bananas whenever she needs to buy salt, paraffin, or a soap.
Kezabu reports that because of her condition, she has problems whenever she coughs, laughs, or when she is cultivating. She experiences urine incontinence and persistent backaches. This has caused her discomfort and affected her quality of life and, if not treated, her symptoms will persist and she may develop an ulcer. Kezabu was seen by the doctor at Watsi’s Medical Partner Care Center Nyakibale Hospital, who diagnosed her with grade IV uterine prolapse and recommended her for a hysterectomy.
Kezabu says: “I know that by God’s grace, I will be fine and resume with farming once I have fully recovered.”
