Nyew underwent gallbladder surgery.

After having surgery Nyew feels better. She no longer has stomach pain or a sense of tightness in her upper abdomen, and her back pain has disappeared. She feels like her appetite has returned and she sleeps better at night. She plans to return home.

Nyew said, “I will return home and help my family with household chores. I will collect vegetables in the forest and after my follow-up, I will open a shop at my house to generate income for my family.”

She added, “I would like to say thank you very much to the donor and everyone who helped me to receive my treatment. I want to give you something for helping me but now I have nothing I can give.”

Nyew is a 47-year-old woman from Burma. She lives with her husband and her two sons in Noh Poe village, Myawaddy Township, Karen State. Nyew looks after her house and children at home, and her husband works as a farmer. In her free times, she loves to go out with friends to collect vegetables in the forest.

Nyew has pain and tightness in her upper abdomen. When she is in pain, Nyew is not able to sleep or eat well. Nyew has been advised to undergo a biliary obstruction repair, a procedure to repair the blockage of the bile ducts, which carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. If left untreated, Nyew’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.

After seeking treatment through our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), Nyew is scheduled to undergo her biliary obstruction repair on July 31. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Nyew’s procedure and care.

Nyew says, “Now, I am very happy to hear that I am going to have surgery and I will no longer be in pain after surgery. I plan to return home, take care of my house, and meet with my friends to collect vegetables in the forest after I recover.”
