Paw Day received a hysterectomy to reduce her abdominal and pelvic pain.

Her surgery was a success!

“Since treatment, Paw Day is able to sleep well and no longer experiences abdominal pain,” reports her doctor. “She feels a lot more comfortable and she can walk long distances without feeling fatigued. She no longer experiences difficulty passing urine or has constipation.

Paw Day adds, “I will be happy to go home and be useful to my family and my community. I want to spend quality time with my husband again, without him worried about my health.”

Paw Day lives with her 18-year-old daughter in rural Burma. Her daughter has polio and is physically disabled; as a result she requires a great deal of care from her mother. Paw Day and her husband often have to rely on the rest of their family for financial assistance in order to pay for their daughter’s medication and other needs.

But recently, Paw Day herself has been dealing with health issues. She was diagnosed with uterine prolapse three years ago, a condition which causes the uterus to fall past the pelvic floor and is characterized by considerable pain in the abdomen and pelvic region, along with difficulty passing urine, back pain, and constipation. In addition to these symptoms, Paw Day feels weak and gets tired very easily, making it very challenging for her to care of herself and her daughter in addition to doing physical labor and household chores.

Paw Day needs a hysterectomy, which costs $1,500. Our medical partner expects that once Paw Day undergoes surgery and recovers from her treatment she will regain her strength and be free of pain and discomfort. “She will be able to do household chores and taking care of her daughter and herself. When she is healthy she will be happy again,” they write.
