Kyamatungo underwent uterine prolapse repair.

Kyamatungo had a successful colporrhaphy treatment due to a cystocele. She has no major complaints as the surgery was successful and has gained peace of mind that she won’t feel uncomfortable. Once fully recovered, her quality of life will significantly improve.

Kyamatungo shared, “May God surely bless you and reward you because I would not have had enough money to pay for this surgery without your help and I would have had to struggle with this condition for a long time. I hope to continue with farming after I fully recover.”

Kyamatungo is a 74-year-old widow and a mother who shared with us that she had given birth to four children, but lost two of her daughters and she currently only has two sons. One of her sons is a plumber and another one is a primary teacher. She earns a living from her small farm of bananas from which she gets food and has to sell off some Matooke when she is in need of essential basic needs like salt soap and paraffin. At times she grows small gardens of beans and maize to feed her family.

Kyamatungo came to the hospital with urine incontinence and persistent abdominal pain which she says started three years ago. She further shared that these and her other symptoms have exposed her to having a poor quality of life due to the discomfort she often feels whenever she is public. If not treated, the presenting symptoms may persist or worsen hence causing lifetime disease-related complications or possibly mortality.

Kyamatungo had only ever been to Rugarama health centre IV, where she was examined and diagnosed with cystocele but doctors referred her to Nyakible Hospital for surgical treatment. She was not able to immediately come due to limited finances. At Watsi’s Partner Nyakible Hospital, she has been seen by the gynaecologist for specialized examination, who has recommended surgery.

Kyamatungo says: “I will thank you, people, and pray to God to bless you when am give a chance to undergo my surgery under your support. I hope my surgery will be successful so that I could be relieved from these pending symptoms.”
