Nyirarwaza was successfully treated.

Nyirarwaza’s hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse was a success. She’s at home now recovering with her family, and says she’s excited to no longer be living in a miserable state. After recovery she will be able to walk well and be happy.

“I am well. I am very happy and praising God because my problem is over,” shares Nyirarwaza. “I was worried about my health but now I have hope I will live longer. My heart is full of joy.”

Nyirarwaza is a 65-year-old widow from Uganda. She delivered all her four children, three girls and one boy, from home. All the girls are married and her son, the youngest child, graduated from the Teacher Training College two months ago.

Nyirarwaza has done manual work all her life. She produces her own food, but for the last two months she has not been able to do any work so she has to depend on her daughter in-law.

Nyirarwaza’s uterus started showing signs of coming out in 2006, but she was unable to go to hospital because she didn’t have money. She started using herbs, which she thinks prevented her condition from worsening until three months ago, when the uterus came out. As a result of her condition, Nyirarwaza has a constant backache and swelling between her legs, making it difficult for her to live a happy life.

For $287, Nyirarwaza will undergo a uterine prolapse repair surgery. After her surgery, she hopes to get well and resume working on her farm so that she can produce her own food without having to bother other people.
