Prior to surgery, Pya was experiencing severe lower abdominal pain and body aches. After surgery, his recovery has progressed well, which has had a positive impact on his emotional state. Aside from his surgical wound, he has had no recurrence of pain or any new symptoms.

Pya said, “All of my family are very grateful for my recovery.”

Pya is a 57-year-old man who lives in Karen State, Burma with his wife, daughter, and grandson. Pya’s family owns land on which they grow rice.

In March 2017, Pya started feeling pain in his lower abdomen, but he did not seek any medical care. Shortly after this pain developed, it forced him to stop working.

Pya used to take herbal medicines for his symptoms. However, they were not very effective, and his condition deteriorated. He could not manage the pain, so he traveled to a clinic, where a medic examined him and performed an ultrasound. He was then referred to Mae Sot Hospital, our medical partner’s care center, for further testing. Over three visits, he received an x-ray and blood and urine tests and was diagnosed with bladder stones. Pya was then scheduled for surgery on October 24.

In addition to his pain, Pya’s condition has affected numerous other aspects of his life. Because he has had to stop working, his family has been struggling financially. Fortunately, we can help by raising $1,500 to pay for his surgery.

Pya says, “I want to be able to work on my own farm again. I want my family to be able to eat well and have meat again.”
