Nahabwe underwent an ovarian cyst removal.

Nahabwe successfully received a cystectomy treatment and she is now feeling much better. She has returned home from the hospital and is recovering well.

Nahabwe shared, “Thanks so much for having made this surgery possible for me as I could not have afforded to pay for it had it not been your support. I hope to get much better and continue farming once I am fully settled.”

Nahabwe is a mother to two children who are in nursery school. She studied and completed seventh grade in school herself, but never proceeded due to lack of money for school fees. She earns a living from farming: growing food crops for home but sells off the surplus to earn money for her family. Her husband is also a farmer. He grows spicing food crops like onions, green papers, and tomatoes. He rents land for farming and doesn’t have modern agricultural materials, which has hindered his productivity and profits.

Nahabwe has had lower abdominal pain for a period of close to a year now. Her pain comes in conjunction with severe episodic backaches, with headaches, and she feels easily fatigued whenever she does small amounts of work.

Nahabwe shared that she has always been in and out of clinics misdiagnosed and treated for urinary tract infections but when she saw no relief over the years, she decided to come at Nyakibale Hospital and see the gynaecologist. She was examined and the diagnostic scan showed a large cystic mass that needs to be removed. Without sufficient income for her family, she is requesting support for the surgery which will cost $220.
