Phors underwent nasal surgery.

Phor’s operation went well. Surgery will improve his quality of life by clearing his nasal canal of obstruction and allowing him relief of congestion and discomfort. He feels happy that he can breathe again and can return to work without any issues.

Phor said, “I am so happy that I can breathe clearly without any difficulty and that I no longer have any headaches.”

Phors has been diagnosed with a deviated septum. For the last year, he has experienced obstruction in both nasal passages, restricting his breathing and causing congestion, sneezing, and a runny nose. He often gets headaches and is unable to smell anything. In his free time, he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and reading books.

Phors will undergo a Septoplasty procedure to reconstruct and correct his nasal canal and allow for him to breathe without any constriction and alleviate congestion.

Yin Yin

Yin Yin is a 27-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with with her husband, her sister-in-law, her sister-in-law’s husband, her niece and her niece’s two small boys. Her husband, who is the only one supporting her financially, works as a cleaner at a shopping mall. In her free time, she likes to read Burmese novels. Three years ago, when Yin Yin worked as a cleaner in Bangkok, she felt tired, had no appetite, had memory loss and frequent urination. She was brought to a hospital where she was told she has a blood clot in the back of her head. She had it removed surgically, which her employer lent her money for. On December 6th and 8th, Yin Yin had two seizures. She and her husband sought treatment at Mae Tao Clinic, where she was admitted. She does not remember what happened but was given medication and told to come back if she felt unwell. On January 14th, however, she came back to the clinic, complaining of soreness in the back of her head where her first surgery took place. She also reported continued blurry vision, memory loss and fatigue. When the weather gets cold, she feels stiff and sore in her neck and hands. MTC thought she might have encephalitis but needed a CT scan to confirm her diagnosis. Unable to pay, MTC referred her to Watsi Partner Burma Children Medical Fund for assistance in accessing further treatment. Doctors want Yin Yin to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Yin Yin's CT scan and care, scheduled for January 28th. “It has been very difficult for me, but my husband gives me encouragement,” said Yin Yin.
