Htwe underwent a CT scan.

The CT scan showed a biliary duct dilation without an identifiable cause of obstruction. Further investigation is required, but unfortunately Htwe left our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner was unable to conduct a post-op interview with him.

Htwe is a laborer from Burma. He is a 32-year-old man who lives with his wife, two daughters, and son in a village in Myawaddy Township, Karen State, Burma. He supports his family by cutting and selling bamboo. He is not able to save money or pay for healthcare.

In October 2017, Htwe noticed that his eyes and skin turned yellow. Now, he cannot sleep well and was forced to quit work. In early January 2018, he visited Mae Tao Clinic, our medical partner’s care center in Thailand, across the border from Myawaddy. The doctors performed a blood test, a urine test, and an x-ray, but they could not provide a diagnosis. They believe he has a kidney condition.

Doctors want Htwe to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Htwe’s CT scan and care, scheduled for January 25.

He says, “I hope that I get better soon, so I am able to support my family again, and donate some money to help other people that are in need of medical care.”
