When a seven pound tumor is located in the back of the abdomen in the area of large blood vessels, it is not good news for the surgeon nor for the patient.
Florentina had been in pain for a long time, her abdomen increasing in size and nobody able to help her. One day her neighbour told her about Hospital Diospi Suyana in Curahuasi where help can be found. Despite the distance of the hospital from her house, Florentina decided to make the trip, travelling with her husband and their son.
At the hospital her problem was quickly diagnosed as a large, benign tumour of the uterus and Dr Jens Hassfeld offered to remove it. The operation was difficult, but in the end successful. All doctors and the patients family were thoroughly pleased with the outcome.
We offer our thanks and congratulations to the expert medical team who persevered through to successful with this complicated procedure.
