This woman waits at a traveling clinic to be evaluated for a possible hysterectomy that could cure her late-stage uterine prolapse. Unfortunately, she was unable to get the operation because of an infection caused by the implantation of a rubber ring that would keep her uterus inside her body until she could procure an operation. The uterine prolapse keeps her in almost constant pain, prevents her from eating full-sized meals, and makes it difficult to walk or carry heavy loads. Because of the prolapse, she cannot do the manual work of other Nepali women and she was essentially disowned by her family. Her only option now is to raise the $300-$500 herself for the hysterectomy once her infection disappears, yet the prospects for this seem dim. Read Nicole’s blog
