Lhakpa Tsewang is the father of one of our Ghap Health Post staff. While Lhakpa was looking for firewood in the forest, a tree fell on him causing a fracture to his lower spine. He received emergency treatment from our Ghap Health Post but after a week it became clear that he needed more advanced treatment than our Health Post staff could provide.
Lhakpa was flown to an orthopedics hospital where he received spinal surgery. After a month in the hospital he was discharged but with orders to continue to rest in the city before attempting the long journey back to his home village. The doctors expect Lhakpa to make a full recovery and be able to walk again. Follow us as we journey with Lhakpa in his road toward healing!
