On 07/28/2010 with the financial help of the nonprofit organization,Touching Souls International, she got her free haemorrhoidectomy surgery, which was the only option for her condition in Nurture General Hospital. Operation was done by Surgeon Dr. M.A. Kashem and Anesthesiologist Dr. Kawser Ahmed.
Hemorrhoids are a medical condition where the blood vessels in or around the rectal area become stressed or strained resulting in pain, itching, irritation, or other discomfort. Hemorrhoids, often called hemroids, are often time accompanied by bleeding. There are a number of reasons why hemroids may bleed, but bleeding generally occur during passing a stool. Even though it may be alerting to see blood-streaked stool, there are hemorrhoid remedies that can help.
Bleeding hemorrhoids are associated with internal hemorrhoids and blood does not usually accompany external hemorrhoids. Though doctors usually associate bloody stools with internal hemorrhoids, there may be other variants or more serious conditions to consider including anal cancer or fissures. If blood is generally notices only during the passing of a stool or at the end of a bowel movement, it is generally a case of bleeding hemorrhoids that are bleeding.
If the condition continues to aggravate itself, it can elevate itself to thrombosed hemorrhoid which is when blood becomes clotted within hemorrhoids themselves, and thus protruding out of the anus. Swelling is generally accompanied by pain and itching. The bleeding that occurs with hemorrhoids results from squeezing, friction, or passing a hard bowel movement due to constipation. Rarely does such excessive bleeding occur where a patient must be treated for anemia.
Surgery that may be done to treat hemorrhoids includes rubber band ligation or surgical hemorrhoidectomy. These procedures are generally used for patients with severe pain or bleeding who have not responded to other therapy.
Touching Souls International provides many projects in Bangladesh supporting health, education and safe environment for the disadvantaged. For the philanthropic work of this nonprofit, patients like Rokeya are saved from their sufferings, who does not have any financial freedom to have a very needed haemorrhoidectomy.
