Barungi underwent a mass removal on her thigh.

Barungi had a mass excision surgery due to having a mass on the lateral side of the right thigh. The surgery was successful and she reports big improvement. Barungi can now wear tight clothes as other young women do without difficulty and pain. She believes she will live a better quality of life after recovery since she will be able to sit comfortably and do her day to day duties without pain.

Barungi says, “ I thank the WATSI program and Rushoroza hospital for the joint support. I received quality care and services. I believe I will run my business with ease now that you have relieved me of the burden. May God bless you.”

Barungi runs a soft drinks mini shop in Kampala City selling juices, sodas, and other drinks. Her husband works in the same region as a casual laborer on different construction sites. They own a two-room permanent house for shelter. They have no children yet after losing their first child shortly after birth.

At Rushoroza Hospital, Barungi presented with long-standing history of a right upper thigh mass that has been progressively increasing in size and shared that the mass has been painful since she was 14 years old. If not treated through a mass excision, it may further grow and she could develop severe pain that would stop her from doing her work. It may also develop into a carcinoma.

Barungi told us, “With the surgery, I will be able to work comfortably again and be able to dress smartly like other women do. I pray that my request to Watsi supporters may be granted.”
