I spent my half CNY 2017 @ Sunway Medical Hospital

Gong Xi Fa Cai, everyone!
How's everyone Chinese New year holiday?
Mine did not come to the way I expected to, so it was really disappointing.
If you are on my Instagram, you probably noticed I was being admitted to hospital halfway through my Thailand trip.
The trip was original planned to come back home on the 6th Feb, but I bought a new ticket from Chiang Mai on the 2nd Feb.
The new ticket costed me a bomb! #heartpain


The same pus infection in between my left eye and nose happened again on the 10th day during the trip.
It repeated attacks of a red, painful swelling at the corner of my left eye.
Lik and my family worried so much, and they forced me to come back urgently.
This time, I admitted to Sunway Medical Hospital instead of Pantai Bangsar Hospital.
Not because Pantai isn't good enough, it's because I was recommended to an eye specialist from Pantai to get the right treatment for my tear dust system.


Dr. Sree Kumar Palani is an Oculoplastic surgery and Ophthalmology.
He is very nice, patient, and friendly; that's my first impression when I first met him.
He explained to me very well what causing the pus infection again and again.
My tear duct system was blocked, which causing watering eye and pus around the eye.
If you asked what actually causing it happened, well doc said that probably due to my body structure.
Maybe I was borned to have a narrow tear duct system.
So, a minor surgery need to be done, whereby make a new passage from the tear duct system into the nose.


Dr. Koay Cheng Boon is an ENT plus head & neck surgery. 
He is a very straight forward doctor whom will tell you what to do and what not to do.
Sometimes he can be harsh in his words, but no doubt he is a professional doctor.
I couldn't agree more with him that if I take extra attention on my watering eyes earlier, I wouldn't have to go through so much of pains with the needles and injections.


Another doctor that I want to mention is Dr. Bachan Singh, an anesthesiology doctor whom I met at the operation theater. 
He is such a wonderful doctor to have.
He knew I was very scared about the pain of being injected, so he patiently calmed my fears before the injection.
I truly thanks for his skilled, compassionate and understanding. 


To the doctors, you all are so great! Thank you very much for the excellent cares!


I stayed at the hospital for the antibiotics injection before the surgery because the pus infection was pretty bad; taking antibiotics wouldn't help.
I was at ward 4A.
This time I get a 2 bedded room, instead of a single bed room.
After spending so much on the air ticket, I don't really want to top up for the room while my insurance coverage only up to RM200 per day. 
It was truly glad to have the entire nurses and staffs at ward 4A because everyone of them are very nice and helpful during my stays.
They go above and beyond my expectations as they truly show a genuine concern and interest in taking care of the patients. 
Thank you very much! I love all for your cares, kindnesses and loves!


It's always good to have something to compare with.
By looking at the treatments and surgical I had at both hospitals, I think Pantai has high charges compared to Sunmed. 
Though the admission procedure took a bit slow, in fact both hospitals have a very slow admission procedure.
Patients need to lie down and get some well-deserved rest.
I just don't understand why can't they be considerate by arranging the patients to a special lounge (at least) while waiting for the approvals, rooms ready etc.



Now, I am resting well at home.
I hope I will get well soon because I can't wait to kick back on my routine busy lifestyle.
Till then, we meet again!
XOXO
