Balloon Sinuplasty

live update from prince court medical centre.

Kali ni, OH pulak warded. panjanggg kisahnya.

GP refer to respiratory specialist, after OH complained of prolong coughing. buat bronchoscope to check the lung, alhamdulillah, tak ada apa-apa. batuk pun kurang.

tapi lepas tuh, selsema pulak menjadi-jadi, sampai OH bila buang hingus (sorry ye kalau ada yang tengah makan!!) sakit kepala yang teramat-amat.

respiratory specialist refer pulak ke ENT. buat CT scan segala, n tengok-tengok, the underlying cause was chronic sinusitis. banyak sangat fluid ada kat pipi.

so, dr recommend to undergo ballon sinuplasty procedure. Balloon Sinuplasty (BSP) uses a small, flexible, balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways and facilitate drainage of the mucus that builds up in patients suffering from chronic sinusitis. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it restructures and widens the walls of the sinus passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining. it involves no cutting and no removal of bone and tissue.

he didn't allow me to take AL to teman him in the ward. macho kunun! so, lepas office hours tadi, terus rush ke hospital to check on him. sampai-sampai ward jek, tgk-tgk masih tido. kul 5 lebih baru sedar.

he said, he can breath muchh better. alhamdulillah. now sekarang nih, OH sibuk suruh saya pulak mintak referral letter suruh check my sinusitis. hmm. nengok la cemana.

harapnya with this procedure, he'll feel much better. kesian dok pssrt.. pssrtt.. kat umah.

if I'm not mistaken, the Dr's name is Dr Kuljit of Prince Court

as of the cost, I'm not so sure because the bill was covered by insurance. rasanya dalam 10-15k
