Ei underwent hip surgery.

The doctor planned to do an internal fixation for Ei, but during admission, the doctor performed another x-ray and found out that Ei’s hip was totally dislocated. Instead of performing an internal fixation, the doctor performed a hip replacement. After surgery, Ei feels a lot better. She can walk well, and she doesn’t feel any pain.

Ei says, “My mother doesn’t worry about my future anymore. I plan to return to my work as soon as I return to Mae Sot.”

Ei is a 24-year-old woman from Burma. For the last eight years, she has been living in Thailand. She has recently completed her certification and is an official medic with family planning expertise.

When Ei was nine years old, she was playing with her friend and fell into a large gutter. In the fall, she dislocated and fractured her right leg/hip. Her family did not have the financial capital required to seek treatment, so Ei has lived with this condition ever since. She regularly experiences a throbbing hip pain that extends down the back of her leg. Some days, she is in such great pain that she cannot get out of bed in the morning.

“I am very worried that my medical condition is getting worse,” Ei says. “I am experiencing more pain on a regular basis. I have taken a lot of time off work and am feeling depressed due to pain and feeling embarrassed when people notice my limp. I hope to have surgery soon so I can be healthy and strong.”

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund Ei’s surgery. She is scheduled for treatment at our medical partner’s care center, Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. After her operation, Ei will be able to live and walk free from pain.
