Kenyonyozi to fund a transvaginal hysterectomy and colporrhaphy.

Kenyonyozi received a successful treatment of transvaginal hysterectomy and colporrhaphy due to cystocele and partial uterine prolapse. She reports improvement only that she has some headache but will get better soon. She was originally admitted for a colporrhaphy but the gynecologist found a need to remove the uterus as well during operation.

Kenyonyozi says, “Thanks so much for the support that I have received because I was not sure on how to treat my condition. Thanks for saving my life. I look forward to resuming to cultivation when stable.”

Kenyonyozi has lived with mass on her vagina for the past three years. This mass bleeds and protrudes whenever she walks thus making her movements uncomfortable. She has had a poor quality of life due to this condition and if not treated complications like anemia may occur.

Kenyonyozi had been to the hospital and was diagnosed with cystocele. The doctors recommended surgical treatment but since was unable to get surgery as she had no money. She continued to live with her condition. Having heard of the SAFE surgical program at Nyakibale, she decided to come see if there is a possibility for support if possible. She was diagnosed with cystocele, recommended to undergo colporrhaphy treatment and was admitted to the SAFE program for support for a better quality of health.

Kenyonyozi is 69 years old married mother to eight children. Six daughters married and two sons who are causal labours. Her husband is a bedridden elderly man who can’t do any work due to old age. Kenyonyozi works as a small scale farmer but has recently stopped because of her condition. This has hindered her income and she can’t afford the costs of her surgery.

Kenyonyozi says, “I hope to get better after surgery and continue with cultivation.”
