Update on my hospital adventure Jun 2021

I realise that I have been losing energy and feeling breathless last one year. Late last year, TTSH docs advised me to be prepared for water dialysis. Sounds like an exciting adventure and stage of my life.

Last Monday, I was admitted to TTSH for suspected fever and infection. The hospital also drew 2 kg of water making my weight now 72kg, instead of 75kg when I arrived.

Well, today the advice is to start blood dialysis quickly today.

I have been getting queries from members. And in order not to have bits and pieces of information from diff sources, I shall update this Post regularly.

I am fine mentally. SHC will move on, We are making arrangements to plan forward next 5-10 years. I am glad to have very strong support from Jean Lim. And the many members, pioneer and newer, who believe in the SHC objective. Tq.

  3. Tq for all the well wishes. I entered hospital at 75kg. This morning my weight was 69kg. Doc removed the fluid, saying no fat.

    So happy today had 4 pcs of prawns. All other days melon soup and clear stewed pork.

    Am well, likely to stay in hospital one more week. Admiring the nurses around.

    Singapore TTSH has excellent doctors, C class treatment was superb, its medical database first class and good wifi. Trust the Singapore system to retire and be treated surely when sick.

  5. It really is wonderful news to hear that you are making such positive and encouraging progress, and it’s inspirational to hear how you are overcoming this. I am proud to know someone who is so brave and positive. I know you will stay strong.
    Cheers !

  6. Just out from operating room. Surgeon inserted a 19cm into my artery, to do blood dialysis. Less than 30 mins, no pain, some super glue, stapler at work and freezing temp.

    Guys, godmother still alive. She is going to boil water and cook fox tail. Tq for your concern

  7. This morning. I was pleasantly surprised my weight had dropped to 63.6kg from 75 kg a week ago. Had a 3 hr dialysis, feeling much better and hungry all the time.

    Jean brought some hard boiled eggs which I silently cracked in the middle of the night

    I am expected to remain in hospital for another week.

  8. Hard-boiled egg is a handy high-protein snack if you have diabetes. The protein will help keep you full without affecting your blood sugar. Protein not only slows digestion, it also slows glucose absorption. This is very helpful if you have diabetes.

  9. Terence?
    Hope you will feel better each day,
    May good health envelop you, spurring a quick recovery.
    May the good wishes and warm thoughts of those who
    care about you send cheerfulness into your world and wish you healthy!
    Regards Alan Ang

  10. Every Thur 9pm, we have a support group meeting on zoom for diabetics. Many things to know and share. EO Jean Lim.

    Diabetics is a complex disease, if sugar and diet are not well controlled.

    Coming Monday, I have a up and down colonoscopy to see if my colon is stucked.

    The leg surgeon is putting a tube past my groin, into one of 3 leg arteries.

    Doc also doing a tube into my leg artery via a balloon. Then the surgeon will do an operation on my kneel.

    Medical science is just fantastic.

    • Wow! What a bumpy journey for u but none the less thankfully appreciate your update to us your rough ride thru this whole week. Jia You!

  11. As we get older, our body parts aged too. With time, some parts don’t function as well as they should be. This is the process of life. I have had my knees replaced, eye parts replaced too.

    Bothersome as it is, dialysis helps those with kidneys problem. Life still go on.

    I am aware you are having a colonoscopy on Monday. I have had 3 already. Like to share a little with you. Before you go for the procedure you have to drink a liquid to flush out the rubbish in the large intestine and colon. This drink tastes horrible. To mask out the taste, normally 100 plus or a palatable drink can be added. Be prepared for it.

    Hope you get back to normalcy soonest.
    Many in SHC care about your health and wish you well. Sorry for the double posting. I will delete the other one if I can.

  12. I am a very firm believer of a saying “Everything happened for a reason” So, just go along with this saying cant be wrong, tio bo? Quai quai obey the “must”, follow the “should” by the doc and surgeon and lastly but not the least, keep fighting for a better tomorrow… I am looking forward for the Fairy godmother not only be alive kicking but also can be strong to wave the magical wand again lor…

    Take care… :)

  13. Keep going Terence. SHC wishes you speedy recovery and regain full strength. We feel there is so much more to do with little time and we are there for you always. Best wishes. Bruce Lee

  14. I think I can be discharged end week. Tomorrow I have an angio on my left leg, a little tube and balloon. Then can go home. Need a walking stick though.

    Am doing ok with dialysis.

    Tq Bruce for your concern.

    Terence Seah

  15. Though all that treatments you are receiving are challenging, it’s a passing phrase. So glad to hear the you are recovering well and going home soon. Shortly, you are able to throw the walking stick and cha cha cha.
