Hello guys! How are you?
I am back already since last week (14 November). Last week, I feel a bit sleepy and go to bed a bit early, around 9-10 o'clock. I watch my cats, and they know that I am back already!!!
The tumor has been successfully removed 100%. I can eat as usual, can breath as usual, can take bath as usual, and read as usual. I can drive already. I need to take good care of my right eye because of the previous facial paralysis that effect my vision, my handwriting, my right hand and my right leg.
I still remember (HUKM), previously, I cannot walk, and eat in ICU. It takes about three weeks to one month for me to start walking as usual. I still use a wheelchair to help me to walk, go to washroom, or my room. I can't move a lot at that time because I still feel imbalance.
After that three weeks, I started my physio at HUKM for physical/walking therapy, working therapy, and speech therapy. At that time, there were some words that I cannot say. Actually, the physiotherapist have done a good job in their field. They helped a lot of most patients already.
When I have my second surgery in LA, USA, I can even eat and walk in ICU. And after I've moved to normal ward, (I am in ICU for about three days) I can climb the stairs already, speak as usual, walk as usual, eat as usual, go to the bathroom as usual, without the hands of the nurse/my mother. I am in the hospital (Saint Vincent Medical Center) for 5 days only!
How they do it? How they can minimise the risk of post surgery? Although there were CSF leaks after the surgery. I believe that they have the techniques and expertise that we can learn. (If Malaysian Doctor want to learn la...)
Our country lack of such expertise and experiences in this field. What we have now are the techniques that most Malaysian hospitals learned from them a long time ago and cultivate it in our country.
I will upload the photo for you guys once I've settle with the internet problems. Believe in ALLAH S.W.T!!! Take good care guys!!!!!
