Bashaija underwent surgery to treat his hydrocele.

Bashaija’s treatment was successful! His doctors were able to treat his right hydrocele and he is doing better. He was approved to receive surgery for an inguinal hernia but upon reaching the operating room his surgeons discovered that it was actually a hydrocele, or an accumulation of fluid, and performed a hydrocelectomy. He has no pain like before and his swelling has reduced. After recovering, he hopes that his quality of life will improve.

Bashaija shared, “I have been with this condition that has affected my way of living, but I am now thankful that I am free from it. Thank you for being there for me and restoring my health. I will now be able to live comfortably.”

Bashaija is a teacher from Uganda. For the past 3 years, he has been complaining of scrotal pain, especially when he is walking. He has been managing the condition with medications from different dispensaries and chemists. However, the swell has been persistent and painful. When he was reviewed during Nyakibale Hospital’s surgical camp, he had an inguinal scrotal swell diagnosis and doctors recommend herniorrhaphy treatment.

If not treated, he risks further complications such as strangulation. Bashaija is a father of 9 children. He is a teacher currently working in a private institution. Bashaija’s wife is a peasant farmer, and from their farm produce and his salary, they are able to sustain their cost of living and their last born child’s education. His other children are out with their families but do not have any formal income to rely on. Fortunately, on April 25th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Bashaija’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Bashaija says, “I hope that since your program is going to give me an upper hand, my condition will be treated and I will get peace of mind and be able to do my job of teaching.”
