Surina at the age of 50 years is facing spending the rest of her life in a wheel chair if she does not get a hip replacement soon. The specialist told her that the stage 4 (final stage ) Osteoarthritis in her right hip will attack her spine and leave her paralyzed.
The waiting time at the government hospitals is 2 years for such an op and unfortunately Surina cannot wait even a year as the disease is already threatening her spine. It was only recently that she discovered her fate as she never really knew the severity of her condition.
Out of pure desperation to find relief of constant pain, she joined an experimental drug treatment program aimed at Arthritis suffers but after they took x-rays of her hip joint, they discovered that it was so severe that no medication would have any impact. Devastated by the news and feeling a sense of hopelessness, she managed to get a free consultation with a specialist and well the rest is history.
Surina does not have medical aid and her only source of an income is driving school kids for a living which with the pain , is also been threatened due to the constant pain she endures every day of her life. Private surgery is her only way out and at a cost of around R140000, it seems a hopeless situation.
