Martin Chimpampwe from Zambia Got Rid of Nagging Pain after Hernia Surgery in India

Martin from Zambia sharing his experience about Hernia Surgery in India


Martin Chimpampwe knows the unbearable pain of hernia better than he’d like to. After lots of exercises and trying to stick to a healthy diet, the 56-year-old Zambia resident Martin Chimpampwe wasn’t sure why his belly bulges. He thought it was just fat and age was probably the reason why he wasn’t able to stay fit. Until one day when he was at work and felt the sudden and sharp pain.


He was rushed to the nearest hospital and medical reports reveal he was suffering from a hernia. Doctors recommended the surgery but he didn’t want to rush into this decision. Even though he knew the risk associated with this decision, he put it off. “I was more worried about recovery than surgery,” shares Martin. For the next few months, he worked hard on his diet, exercise so that surgery can be delayed. But, pain developed and increased.

After a few months, he felt the sharp pain again and doctors said it is high time and surgery is the only option. After enduring months of nagging pain, Martin finally agreed to have his hernia repaired. He wanted the best treatment possible for a hernia. So he searched Google for the hernia surgery. While he was scrolling through the result pages, his eyes catch the word Vaidam. He opened the Vaidam site and read the patient stories. He felt confident about Vaidam and sent his query for the best urologist in India for hernia surgery.


Within 24 hours, his query was answered and he shared his medical reports with the case manager. The medical reports were shared with the best urology hospitals in India meanwhile quotation from these hospitals were shared with him. From the list of hospitals, he decided to go with Medanta Medicity, Gurgaon.


From medical visa filling to an appointment with a doctor, all the arrangements were done. He and his wife arrived in India on 5th January, 2019. One of the Vaidam’s team members picked him up from the airport and accompanied them to the hospital. Dr. Adarsh Chaudhary started the laparoscopic surgery after physical evaluation. Performed under general anesthesia, 2-4 small incisions were made. It is less painful and faster recovery due to small incisions.


“I went home the same day and after surgery, the nagging pain that I had tolerated was gone”, he recalls. He was on pain medications for three days after the surgery and was back to work in two weeks. “Thanks to Dr. Chaudhary, he won my heart and I am back to lift light weight and do regular chores without any problem”.
