Kyomuhangi underwent a mass removal surgery.

Komuhangi’s surgery was successful! Her doctors performed a cystectomy to remove a cyst in her right ovary. She feels better now and is only experiencing a small amount of pain at the incision site. Once fully recovered, her quality of life will improve and she will no longer experience backaches and lower abdominal pain. She will be able to go back to work and provide for her family through subsistence farming.

Komuhangi shared, “Watsi has helped me find a way to treat my condition. I thought that I would never have relief but I am now fine and have a new life. May you continue to help others like me. I look forward to continuing farming.”

Kyomuhangi is a 47-year-old married mother to eight children. Two of her daughters are married and are small-scale farmers. Her other six children are all studying in both primary and secondary levels. Kyomuhangi is a subsistence farmer who relies on her small piece of land for their livelihood. She mostly grows crops like beans, maize, and millet. She also rears some domestic animals like pigs, chickens, and also has a couple of goats. Her husband is a policeman.

Kyomuhangi presented in the hospital with lower abdominal pain, chest pain difficulty in breathing, and lateral side pain over a period of three years. Her condition has affected her in that she fears to sleep on her sides and it has affected her work performance as a farmer since she can no longer go to the farm.

Kyomuhangi has been to hospital several times and was diagnosed early with an adnexal mass. Doctors have advised her to have surgery to remove the growth, but she could not afford it.

Kyomuhangi says, “I hope to have a good life after my surgery so that I can continue with cultivation.”
