Su is a 45-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives in Mae Pa, Tak Province, Thailand with her husband and their twelve-year-old son. In her free time, Su enjoys growing vegetables in her garden and getting together with her friends.
Su first noticed symptoms related to her health condition three years ago when she experienced severe abdominal pain. Su underwent an ultrasound and was told that she had a stone in her liver. In January 2019, Su’s severe abdominal pain returned. In May 2019, Su underwent a CT scan at Mae Sot Hospital and the doctor confirmed that Su has a bile duct stone.
Su has been advised to undergo a cholecystectomy, the surgical removal of the gallbladder. If left untreated, Su’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Su is scheduled to undergo her cholecystectomy on June 10. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Su’s procedure and care.
Su says, “I have recently begun to experience pain in my right leg that makes it uncomfortable for me to walk.”
