Christine underwent abdominal surgery.

Christine’s urgent surgery was a success as surgeons were able to remove the cyst. She is recovering well and has been discharged home. The medical team does not anticipate any further surgery will be needed and shared that they will keep Christine on clinical follow-up to ensure she fully heals.

Smilingly, Christine said, “I am hopeful that I will go back to school and study now that I have undergone this surgery.”

On Monday night this week, Christine started experiencing pain in her abdominal area which she thought would disappear but it did not. The pain began when she was in school and her roommate heard her cry at night and went to her help. Upon learning about Christine’s pain, she immediately requested a taxi and rushed her to a nearby hospital. She was examined in the emergency department where first aid and a diagnostic scan was done. Her scan did not reveal anything unusual and she was referred to another facility where she could have a CT scan.

Based on her results from the CT scan she was immediately referred to Kenyatta National Hospital. She was taken there in an ambulance, but on arrival they were asked for money which her father did not have. Their family made a decision to bring her to Kijabe Hospital for treatment with hopes that she could get the care she needed there.

Christine’s family is having a difficult time right now and is requesting help to support her treatment. They need help raising $1,074 to fund the emergency laparotomy that will heal her pain.
