Deependra received successful hydrocele repair surgery.

Deependra is doing well post-surgery, reports our medical partner, Possible. “There will be some pain in the area of surgery and some swelling will persist but Deependra will be given medicine to control the pain,” his doctor noted. Since Deependra is in the army, he will have to avoid lifting heavy weights or doing strenuous activities for about six weeks.

After that period of rest, “He will be up and about without any difficulty,” explains Possible.

Deependra is excited to be healthy again after fully recovering. “It’s been a very emotional time for me,” he shared in his post-operative interview. “What worries me the most is the uncertainty of the future – whether my job as an army will be secured after this surgery and whether I can have a family later. I want my mother to be happy as she ages,” he adds.

Meet Deependra, an 18-year-old who lives with his mother in Nepal. Deependra is in the Army, while his mother works as a farmer in their village. He has one brother who currently lives in India and works in a restaurant.

“Deependra was being examined at work when they told him he had hydrocele and had to go get a surgery done,” shares our medical partner, Possible. A hydrocele is a fluid-filled sac that causes swelling in the scrotum. As a result of his diagnosis, Deependra was “forced to take leave from work and stay on bed rest,” says Possible.

After a four-hour jeep ride to the hospital, Deependra was told that he needed a caretaker with him in order to have surgery. He then had to return to his village to bring his mother along with him.

Now that he has returned to the hospital, Deependra can receive hydrocele repair surgery to drain the fluid from around his scrotum. This $428 surgery will decrease his swelling and allow him to return to work without discomfort.

“I want to be healed as soon as possible so that I can let my mother go back home and I can rejoin work,” shares Deependra.

Let’s make this surgery happen for Deependra.
