Sandar underwent a hysterectomy.
Sandar feels much better now. Before her surgery, she had a high blood pressure and heavy abnormal bleeding. She also felt like she had a heavy weight in her abdomen. After surgery, Sandar feels comfortable when she walks, and she no longer has back pain. She said she also feels lighter. She can sleep and eat well without worrying about her condition. In the future, Sandar will continue to teach and look after the children who live with her.
Sandar said, “But I can’t walk long distances because I still have a bit of pain in my lower abdomen, but I hope that I will get better soon.”
“Before I went into the operation theatre, my children thought that I would die,” recounted Sandar. “When I called them after surgery, they were very happy that I was well and they couldn’t wait to see me.” Sandar continued, “I’m really thankful to all of the Watsi donors and BCMF’s staff for supporting my successful treatment. I hope that this organisation will continue to help more patients like me in the future.”

Sandar is is a 48-year-old pastor from Burma. She lives with her husband, daughter, and seven children who she is sheltering. In her free time, Sandar likes to prepare for her sermons, read the Bible, and pray for others in need.
Since 2017, Sandar has been experiencing high blood pressure and heavy abnormal vaginal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with pelvic mass and has been advised to undergo a total abdominal hysterectomy, the surgical removal of her uterus and cervix. If left untreated, Sandar’s symptoms will continue to worsen and put her at risk for further health complications in the future.
Fortunately, Sandar is scheduled to undergo her hysterectomy on February 24th. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. Once recovered, she will no longer experience abnormal bleeding or discomfort.
“I worry about the children I shelter,” said Sandar. “Currently, I have to buy a lot of sanitary pads and my daughter borrowed 500,000 kyat (approx. 500 USD) from her boss to support me, which she will pay back in installments.”
