March 9, 2020

Kamusiime is a 44-year-old married mother to five children, four girls all married and are small-scale farmers and one boy who is still young and in school. She earns a living through practicing small scale farming and so does her husband. They mostly growing sorghum, millet beans, and cassava and because they have poor agriculture methods, she earns smaller yields and lowering her income.

Kamusiima presented feeling a vaginal mass, excessively prolonged bleeding, and backache for more than two years. Her condition is associated with dizziness, epigastric pain, and headaches. This has made a poor quality of life and if not treated, Kamusiima’s symptoms may persist.

Kamusiima had never been to any hospital for treatment of her condition but having heard of Watsi’s efforts at Nyakibale Hospital, she decided to come for support. She was examined and had a scan, where she was diagnosed with menopausal with cystocele and uterine prolapse. The doctor told her that she needs a trans-vaginal hysterectomy.

She can’t afford the costs of her surgery and needs support. Kamusiime says, “I hope that my surgery will enable me to regain normal health once again.”
