Turyahebwa underwent a curative laparotomy.

Turyahebwa successfully underwent a laparotomy surgery to remove her mass. She shared that she’s already feeling much better and hopes that with full recovery, her pain will cease completely. The surgery also reduced the chances of further complications from the mass, including malignancy and spread.

Turyahebwa told us, “Thank you for helping pay my hospital bill. I was worried about the condition and the cost of surgery. I’ll continue working hard with my husband in raising our family.”

Turyahebwa is a 32-year-old mother of three. She and her husband are farmers who work hard to make ends meet for their family.

For the last four years, Turyahebwa has had a pain in her upper left hip bone. The pain becomes significantly worse when she sleeps laterally, or when straining the area. This has affected her daily life, especially working on the farm. Turyahebwa had visited different hospitals for this before and previously managed her condition with pain medication. When she had a scan conducted at our Medical Partner’s Care Center Nyakibale Hospital, she was diagnosed with an adnexal mass, a growth that occurs near the fallopian tubes, ovaries or uterus. Doctors recommended she undergo a curative laparotomy. However, Turyahebwa and her husband are unable to meet the cost of her care, and appeal for financial support.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Turyahebwa receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a curative laparotomy on March 9th at our medical partner’s care center. This procedure will cost $242, and she and her family need help raising money.

Turyahebwa shared, “I have had enough pain and suffering from this condition. I pray that, with your support, I can have my health restored after surgery for me to continue caring for my family.”
