Radha Bhattarai has been unwell for several months now. But she and her family in Sindhuli would rather want her to stay away from hospitals.

In January, Bhattarai, 56, had a tumor in her kidney removed at Patan Hospital, Lalitpur. Doctors in Sindhuli, some 134 kilometres east of Kathmandu which has one government hospital, had referred her to a Kathmandu hospital for the urgent operation.

The two-hour-long operation went well. But worries of the Bhattarai family remained.
