Ngwe underwent a mass removal procedure.

Ngwe feels much better since she received treatment. Before, she would find it difficult to sit up after lying down. But now she can sit up very easily. She is no longer in pain except for a slight discomfort at the site of her surgical wound. Her treatment has helped both her and her family very much. She no longer has to rely on her daughter to support her when she walks.

Ngwe said, “When I return to my village, I will participate in merit-making activities with my friends, such as going to the monastery and meditating. I will help my daughter’s family by looking after my grandchildren and if I have free time, I will make traditional Burmese bamboo mats. I would like to thank everyone who made this treatment possible, especially the donors who paid for this treatment.”

Kyosimire

Kyosimire is a 40-year-old small-scale farmer who stays at her parents’ home despite being married. She completed sixth grade in primary school and receives limited support from her husband and father who have other families. Kyosimire got married in 2017. She shared that she delayed getting married because she needed to take good care of her mother. After her mother’s death, that’s when she decided to get married. She married a man who has another family with 6 children; she could therefore not get the care and support she hoped from her husband. She has had abdominal pains for the past five years and she thinks her problem of not conceiving could be connected to her abdominal pains. She feels severe pain along with bleeding and sometimes develops swollen legs plus a high heartbeat. She has only used pain medicine from clinics to relieve her pain but has never visited any hospital for medical attention. She has now come to Rushoroza Hospital to seek medical advice. At Rushoroza doctors have recommended she have a total abdominal hysterectomy. The surgery is expected to remove a leiomyoma; hence relieving her pain, the menorrhagia, bleeding, and averting additional complications. She is on her own and cannot afford the surgery charges despite being in severe pain. She shared that she experiences sleepless nights due to the pain and she seeks financial support for the surgery. She said, “I had lost hope. Given the opportunity with the surgery, I believe I can be able to work harder through farming to be able to sustain myself and my entire family.”
