Uterine-prolapsed Women Shun Hospital Until Pain Is Unbearable
NARAHARI SAPKOTA
GORKHA, Jan 28: Bishnu Kumari Khatri, 69, of Takukot VDC-1 recently underwent surgery at Gorkha District Hospital for uterine prolapse. A mother of two, she suffered uterine prolapse after giving birth to her younger child. “I didn’t have adequate rest after the childbirth as there was a lot of household work. It has already been 35 years since my uterine prolapse,” she said. Her 36-year-old daughter, the younger offspring, has been looking after her in the hospital. “My mother never revealed her condition until now,” said the daughter. “Had she sought treatment as soon as she was diagnosed, it would have been much easier for her.”

Bishnu Kumari also has regrets over the delay. She said she did not dare talk about her condition as she feared that the treatment would be too costly, and that just brought further complications and worries to the family. She could not hide it any more when the pain became unbearable. “It would hurt when I walked, stood or sat. I had no choice but to consult the family,” she said.

Some 20 km from Muglin Bazaar along Prithvi Highway, the locals can be seen using the rope-bridge for lack of any alternative. Around 15 to 20 people on average, including Chepangs, risk their lives every day crossing the bridge.
