Turyagyenda underwent a curative laparotomy.

Turyagyenda successfully underwent a curative laparotomy for his appendicular mass. He no longer feels the pain within his right abdominal side and the backache is no more. He was relieved from the presenting pressure symptoms and has now headed home feeling well.

Turyagyenda says “May you live long to help more needy people and May the Lord bless you in whatever you are doing. I hope to resume my farming once I have regained some strength.”

Turyagyenda is a 62-year-old man from Western Uganda and a married father of seven children. He and his wife are both small scale farmers and shared that while they work hard, their banana plantation does not yield sufficient income for their family.

For the past year, Turyagyenda has been experiencing severe abdominal pain on his right side. The pain increases when he attempts to do strenuous work or sleeps on his right side. He is also experiencing weight loss and poor appetite.

When he was reviewed at our medical partner’s care center, he was diagnosed with an appendicular mass. A curative laparotomy was recommended and is scheduled to take place on April 6th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $242 to fund Turyagyenda’s procedure. If not treated, Turyagyenda is at risk of further pain and appendicitis complications.

Turyagyenda shared, “I hope to get cured of this condition and get a better life. I want to be able to keep up with my farming.”
