So underwent a MRI.

So underwent MRI on 14th of September 2019. The result of MRI shows that there is extraaxial mass with rim calcification along right frontal convexity. The doctor told So that he needs surgery to remove the mass and scheduled him for surgery on 23rd October, 2019.

So said, “I am scared and also excited to have surgery. I try to be strong because I believe that I will be healthy after surgery”.

So is a 40-year-old man from Burma. He lives with his family in Myawaddy Township, Karen State. He is a carpenter while his wife is a homemaker. His mother is retired, and his son goes to school.

In mid-2016, So felt lightheaded one day while working. His friend rushed him to the nearest clinic where the doctor completed a physical examination. He was told that his lightheartedness was caused by the hot weather and he was told to drink more water. The following day, So felt lightheaded and developed a headache. He went to the clinic near his house, where he received an injection and oral medication. This time the doctor told him that his symptoms were due to hypertension and told him to come back to the clinic if he did not feel better. Two days later, So went back to the clinic. The doctor completed a physical examination and suspected So has a problem with nervous system. He was treated with medications but he does not feel better. Currently, So still experiences frequent headaches and bouts of dizziness. He cannot sleep well, and he has trouble focusing.

Doctors want So to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $814 to cover the cost of So’s MRI and care, scheduled for September 14th.

So said, “I need to stay strong for my family. I want to have a successful surgery and I want to continue to support my family.”
