Maseru, Dec. 07 — In the corridors of healthcare, there exists a silent struggle faced by those battling endometriosis, an often misunderstood and debilitating condition. Among these fighters are women like Mrs. ‘Makena Setho, who seek not attention but a chance to be heard and understood.
In an interview, Mrs. Setho shed light on the realities of endometriosis, a rare and painful condition that affects women and girls during menstruation. “It’s excruciating,” she expressed, emphasizing the severity of the pain that often necessitates time off for recovery, a phase often met with misunderstanding and scepticism.
Regrettably, she indicated that Lesotho lacks specialists equipped to address the complexities of endometriosis, leaving many struggling for proper care and guidance. “Treatment is expensive,” she lamented, highlighting the financial strain and the need for government intervention to ease the burden on patients. . .
