A tenacious spirit, a relentless battle against pain, and an unwavering pursuit of hope. Meet Ms. Jinan Abdullah, a resilient 54-year-old warrior hailing from Iraq. Her journey began with unrelenting abdominal discomfort that sent shockwaves through her life.
Tirelessly seeking answers, she embarked on a journey that would lead her to the brink of despair and ultimately, triumphant healing.
In the depths of her pain, after numerous investigations, a formidable adversary emerged—a 30 x 30-centimeter sex cord-stromal tumour, nestled within her uterus and ovary area. Fears of multiple organ removal and the ominous shadow of associated risks cast a dark cloud over her spirit. In a courageous bid for recovery, she traversed the corridors of multiple hospitals, across Iraq and even India, each offering their suggestions, from HIPEC Surgery to Intestinal stoma removal, and even the drastic option of kidney removal. Amidst the whirlwind of uncertainty, her hope was hanging by a thread.

Lymph nodes and the abdominal fat (omentum) surrounding the tumour area were also taken out during the procedure. Ms. Jinan Abdullah’s journey of resilience culminated in a triumphant recovery, and she seamlessly slipped back into her normal rhythm of life.
Dr Archit Pandit, Director & HOD, Surgical Oncology, Sanar International Hospitals, commended Ms. Jinan’s enduring patience and indomitable perseverance. “A 30-centimeter-sized tumour can spark apprehension in even the strongest of spirits,” he acknowledged.
