about Tumuhairwe's recovery.

March 2, 2020

Tumuheirwe is a 60-year-old single mother to four children. One child is a bodaboda cyclist, one a mechanic, and another one is a tailor. Her youngest daughter is still in school. She earns a living through small scale farming whereby she mostly grows fruits like mangos, avocados, and guavas which she sells in the market for to support her family and school fees for her daughter.

Tumuheirwe presented with menopause syndrome associated with a palpable mass per vaginal conjunction with persistent abdominal pain for the last six years. Her condition has made her have a poor quality of life over the years and if not treated, the discomfort and symptoms she feels may persist.

Tumuheirwe had never been to any hospital for medical treatment but having heard of our program at Nyakibale Hospital, she decided to come for support. She was diagnosed with cystocele whereby anterior colprorrhaphy treatment was recommended.

Tumuhairwe says, “I hope that after my surgery, I will be healed from my condition and continue with my activities in order to support my family.”
