Win underwent a CT scan.

Win went back to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) to receive the CT scan on 28th of February 2020. After he received the scan, the doctor asked him to return to MSH for the results a week later. Win came back accordingly as per the appointment date and the doctor told him that there were stones in his right kidney and that he needed to receive surgery to remove the stones. The doctor gave him a follow-up appointment for surgery on the 16th of June 2020. He needs to wait several months due to the new hospital policy regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, but hopefully treatment will be able to move forward soon and he will return to a better quality of life.

Win said, “I was happy to hear the results of the CT scan so I could get some clarity on my problem. I can’t wait to have surgery because I am tired of dealing with this. I don’t want to suffer from the pain anymore. I feel very uncomfortable…There is a burning sensation and sometimes I have pain in the right side of my abdomen. I want these symptoms to go away for good.”

Win is a 46-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his wife and two sons in a village in Kyain Seikyi Township in Karen State. His elder daughter is a health worker where she works at a clinic in another village in Burma. His two youngest sons are students. Both he and his wife are a subsistence farmers. In his free time, he sometimes helps his communities with building a bridge or road as much as he can.

In January 2020, he developed a painful urination, itchiness, and also difficulty urinating. He feels like something is blocking his urinary and also feels stomach pain in his right side.

Doctors want Win 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 his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Win’s CT scan and care, scheduled for February 28.

Win said, “I keep myself strong and I hope if I receive proper treatment I will be better.”
