The Story Of Lalitha – plea for help

I first met Lalitha in 1998 when she was admitted to my ward (No 8) at the Sri Jayewardenapura General Hospital. She was 36 years of age, very poor, unmarried and living with her mother. Lalitha was suffering from a very serious condition of her gullet (the passage that takes food from the throat to the stomach). Her gullet had become very narrow and as such she could not swallow any food leading to wasting of her body and malnutrition. If the problem was not corrected, death would have been inevitable. I decided to operate on Lalitha to give her a new lease of life.
