Nganizi underwent hernia repair surgery.

Nganizi had a successful herniorrhaphy treatment for his right inguinal hernia. Now, he is able to move well with no pain, unlike before. Soon, Nganizi will be able to get back to working on his farm to support his family and live a balanced lifestyle.

Nganizi shared, “I’m so blessed to find that out of many patients, I have been able to be funded and be relieved of my condition that I had for so long. I will be able to continue with farming after recovering fully.”

Nganizi is a 57-year-old farmer from Uganda. He came to Nyakibale hospital with complaints of swelling around his inguinal area over the past two years. This is painful especially when he strains, coughs, or bends. Being a farmer, most of the time he is doing strenuous work and it becomes painful for him.

Nganizi had not sought treatment before but when he heard of the surgical program in the hospital, he opted to be seen by the surgeon. He was diagnosed with a bilateral inguinal hernia after a scan was done and herniorrhaphy surgery is recommended. This surgery will help reduce instances of hernia strangulation and even intestinal obstruction which may be fatal. His other hurdle is financing the surgery. As a father of 7, he relies on farming to pay fees for his children who are still in school. His wife joins him on the farm to make ends meet. Their family is not able to meet the cost of surgery and appeals for financial assistance. 

Fortunately, on October 13th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Nganizi’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Nganizi says, “I am hopeful that the surgery will go on well and I will thereafter continue with farming so I can continue sustaining my family.”
