Warded in HUKM

There will be disturbing photo content, click X if you can't bare to see gross and disgusting stuff..


Yesterday just got discharged from the orthopedic ward in HUKM. Due to wound infection, I was admitted into ward on 16/05/2009, Saturday. Okay, lets have a look at my X-ray of my fracture metatarsal bone.




And now into the most important part, my wound. Review of the hit area. Swelling > bruises > infected wound with a hole!

From nothing to something serious..


A week before, it was only a small hole, and I thought it will recover by itself, but as days passed.. the hole became bigger!! Can't wait anymore until the next appointment on 20th of May, my uncle brought me back to HUKM for a check up. When we got there, the hospital was having a blackout. In this situation, all the machines were not working. We waited from 9am-1pm to have my foot scan! My uncle keep scoldin' scoldin' and scoldin' for the whole day.. After the X-ray scanning, waited for another 2 hours to have a doctor to attend me!!! walauu eaaa.. Dr. Siti who attended me told me that I need to be warded and go through a operation to clean the infected wound. Kinda worried because this really sounds serious to me... So, got admitted into ward after waited for another 1 hour which is about 4pm something... The whole process in HUKM was to WAIT.


1st day warded, 16/05/09(Sat)

My backslab was removed and I have to puasa in order to go for the operation. The reason to puasa (total empty stomach) before operation is because to prevent the patient vomit and choke themselves to death during the surgery. Sis came by at night and brought me PSP, my iPod shuffle and my fully charged hp. Marcus, my aunt, Snail and Fei waited for me to go for operation but there was no news at all. But I knew that it will be around the corner! Nurse was shooing visitors and I was left alone on the bed. I was so nervous and tension for whole night!! I kept on looking at the clock until I fell asleep listening to my iPod.



12am sharp, I was waken up by the nurse to change to surgery outfit. My hearbeat went 1000 times faster!!!!!!!! OMG.... going already.. Pop onto the bed and 2 nurses push me to the operating theater. I shivered along the way until reached OT, still shivered like a vibrating mobile phone!!!! An anaesthetic doctor told me that I will be getting a spinal anaesthetsia which is a injection into the back which will cause total numbness and paralysis for both of my legs. The OT was exactly the same as what we see on TV, with those huge round and adjustable light, doctors with mask on. Never expect to have music in the OT though! Was playing the english hits songs. LoL!!

Onto the operating bed, the anaesthetic doctor swap my lower back very hard with the alcohol wipe. I saw those needles.. huh.. that was killing me mentally, I'm so scared.. FOR ONCE, I'm being so scared in my life......... I'm so terrified. The doctor never told me that I will be getting 3 japs!! The injections were EXTREMELY PAINFUL!!! SO SO SO PAINFUL!!!! Tears came out... The pain was indescribable.. I can felt the liquid flow downward to my butt and the slowly making my both legs numb. The operation started at 12.45am. I was wide awake during the whole operation. Although with the anaesthetic, I still can felt some pain while doctors were working on my foot. I can felt they were scrappin' the wound, kept pressing to released those blood clot inside the wound. And I even felt that the wound was being stitch!! My upper body still manage to shivered.. =.= The operation last for 45minutes.. Then, I was sent to the monitoring ward and pushed back to orthopedic ward after half an hour.

Huhh.. At last.. I've gone through the operation. Being curious, I tried to move my legs and the feeling of paralys was so weird because I really can't move move my legs. Slept at 3am and woke up at 6am with my butt still numb.. LoL!



After operation.

2nd day warded, 17/05/09(Sun)


Dull look..

1st hospital breakfast, fried macaroni with chilli. I heard that after having surgery better to avaoid spicy food, yet hospital is serving patients with spicy food. My routine on the bed was PSP-ing (Popolocrois and Loco Roco), sleep, eat, go to the toilet pee pee, and the routine just repeat..


Now just need to hang antibiotic solution, huhhhhhhhh.. It's HURT!!!!!!!!!!! Each time removed, nurse need to clear the clot by japping solution into the vein. It's HURT!!!!!!!! I hate that feeling!! Antibiotic solution then will be attach to the needle.. Will eat chocolate that Marcus bought to me and keep on chewing on it. Yum yum~ Marcus came over and accompany me for awhile bringing ribena and then ciao..~







Fik called up and said will visit me, I waited him till I fell asleep. When I woke up, saw a carton of HL milk, a pack of fruits left by Fik and Hugo... What laaa... You guys should whack me up instead of calling my name softly.. haizzzzz....... Anyway, really thanks alot!!!!


Met a new friend there who was a patient that ride bike too.. She hits a trailer and had injury most of the lower part of the body. She has serious fracture pelvis bone.. She can only walk after 6 months and run after 2 years of recovery...She told me that she won't ride bike anymore..

Spicy, spicy and spicy.


3rd day warded, 18/05/09(Mon)

Today, the bandages were removed and doctor had a look at the wound. The doc said I need to stay for few more days to monitor the wound.......... I thought can ciao ady.. haizz.. need to stay again.. and continue poking needles and hang antibiotic solution.. almost cried out..


Everything remove and my foot naked, the doc said I need to stay for few more days..

Aunt came to visit me in the morning and we had some talk.. Then uncle brought fish head noodle for me~ yummy...~ At last.. there's something that really can make me feel full.. Got the wound cleanse by medic student. There were 5 of them grouping together to cleanse and do dressing for my foot. So funny looking at those doctor-to-be doing their pratical.. In the afternoon, Marcus came with Chu Ming to visit me. After discharge from ward will GG~ LoL!


The backslab was removed and I feel FREE~ Snail and Fei dropped by at night brought along soy bean drink and prunes for me~ Seriously, I dislike RICOLA..



Vein at my right hand started to swell and the antibiotic doesn't flow into it, so have to poke the left hand... Somehow leakage occured and the session have to be pause until a doctor come to fix it. I waited until fell asleep and the doc only came at 12am... He was an hour late...



Patients were serve with KAMPUNG FISH!!! I didn't touch the meal at all..... As you can see, ALL THE MEAL (breakfast, lunch, dinner) are SPICY!
