Mrs Najumudeen, an entrepreneur of a small business residing in Kalubowila was diagnosed with Hernia over 15 years ago. Married with two grown up children, she came to Durdans Hospital to receive treatment in April 2012.
“I’m physically a large person and was diagnosed with Hernia over 15 years ago. I had been procrastinating my surgery due to fear of general anesthesia. After visiting many specialist consultants, most of them informed me that I have a 50% chance of successfully coming out of it. Naturally, I wanted to postpone my surgery until it became absolutely necessary.”
Early 2012 Mrs Najumudeen suddenly fell ill and decided to consult at Durdans Hospital with Professor Sherifdeen. She finally decided to overcome her fear and proceed with the surgery. “The team put me at ease and encouraged me to go through the surgery, convincing me that it would work out well.”
After her surgery Mrs Najumudeen recovered well and was relieved of pain.
“After my surgery I started looking back in time realising that I should have considered my surgery many years ago and saved the agony and discomfort I had been enduring for so long. At Durdans, the consultant surgeon, anaesthetist, theatre team including the matrons, sisters and nurses are very competent and highly commendable. The ward staff were true nightingales, attending to every need I had helping me to recuperate post-surgery, fast and effectively. They were advising and guiding me through the whole process and I was made to feel so special. Soon I realised it was the same experience to every person who comes to Durdans. Thank you to everyone at Durdans, who was involved in my surgery. I am glad I came to you and today I am enjoying my life free of pain.”
Mrs Najumudeen continues her daily activities free of pain and is occupied with her small business.
