Nyarna underwent a CT scan.

The doctor diagnosed her with a stone in both the bile ducts in her liver and her common bile duct. She was also diagnosed with a small gallstone, an enlarged liver and spleen, and a small right renal cyst. The doctor also said that Nyarna has a small liver abscess, which needs to be treated with antibiotics for a week. After the antibiotics, the doctor will schedule her for surgery.

Nyarna said, “At Mae Tao Clinic, I receive medicine that decreases my pain and I feel a little bit better now. If I receive treatment and I am healthy again, I would like to go to Kyite Tee Yo Pagoda and meditate.”

Nyarna is 59-year-old nun from Burma. After her husband and children passed away, Nyarna worked as a housemaid for a while before deciding to become a nun four years ago.

Around 2014, when she was working as a housemaid, she had jaundice for which she received oral medication. Later in 2019 she started to suffer from abdominal pain, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and fatigue.

Doctors want Nyarna 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 Nyarna’s CT scan and care, scheduled for March 4.
