Surgery (March 2020)

My surgery March 2020 - Blog about my endometriosis and PCOS by Sabeena Ahmed

For those that don't know I was admitted to hospital after a few weeks of excruciating pain in my left ovary and required urgent surgery.

My cyst was removed 17th March 2020.

My consultant informed me that the cyst had ruptured and had welded itself to my colon and left ovary. He removed the white ruptured cyst cleaned me up. but could not see any signs of Endometriosis or PCOS due to inflammation.

I was in two minds about attaching photographs of my ruptured cyst and decided against it.

Thank you to all my friends and family who sent get well messages.

  

Ramadan 2020 Photo Diary, Dubai, UAE

Omani lanterns with hearts

I expressed interest to participate in the Observing Ramadan in Britain Photo Research project.

This project was conceived by a Phd researcher Laura Jones - Cardiff University. I've been asked to take a photograph of every day of Ramadan and provide a short explanation of each photograph

Ramadan Mubarak/Kareem to all my friends and family around the world.

Sadly, this was the second Ramadan in my life where I was not well enough to fast.

I pray Allah azza wa'ajal (God) will accept my prayers and zakat, Aameen!

Despite recovering from two shoulder surgeries and a ruptured cyst I was determined to complete this blog.
