Kabugho received successful surgery.

Kabugho’s uterine prolapse repair went well, and she is no longer going to feel the discomfort or pain she previously had. Her quality of life will improve significantly, and after recovery, she will be able to do all her work. She was discharged and is expected to make a full recovery.

“I am feeling much better and I feel no [symptoms] when walking,” Kabugho shared. “I am excited that I will feel comfortable when in public. After recovery I will continue working hard to produce food for my children to raise them in good health. Thank you very much for the help you have given me to enable be feel a new person.”

Kabugho is 40-years-old, married, and a mother of seven from Uganda. Both she and her husband are peasant farmers. She cultivates food for the family and her husband cultivates onions and potatoes for sale. He spends most of the money he earns on the education for six of his children in school, but it’s never enough because he always remains with debts at the end of the school term. This season he has not produced anything for sale because it all dried up due to the prolonged dry season.

After delivering her sixth child, Kabugho started feeling lower abdominal pain. When she delivered her seventh child in February 2016, her condition worsened. Kabugho feels a lot of pain when passing urine and the pain increases when she laughs and when she is walking. She has a lot of discomfort and she doesn’t want to go in public. She visited a hospital where she was told she has a problem with her bladder, but the medicine given to her has not helped her at all.

For $280, Kabugho will undergo uterine prolapse repair to strengthen the pelvic floor muscle. After surgery, she hopes to feel comfortable again and continue working hard to produce food her family.

“I hope to feel comfortable again after surgery,” shares Kabugho.
