Assalamualaikum my friends,

When I walked into the doctor's office the other day for my follow up, he was so happy to see me because I'd put on weight. In two months, my weight had increased by 3 kg. I am proud to say that my weight is now 48 kg, even more than it was before cancer.

He checked inside my mouth and declared that everything looks ok. However, he also said that I have to be on the look out all the time for any change at all in the oral cavity because should there be any recurrence, they would want to catch it as early as possible. He went on and said that from his experience, for a young patient like me with no risk factor, a lot of time, a recurrence results in losing the battle. It seems that there nothing we can do to prevent the recurrence. So, what should I do now? Just wait for the time??

Ouch! ..that was like a smack in the face. After a few seconds, I thought to myself, well, if its time to go, you go. But before the time comes, before my time is up, there are a lot of things I can do. Thinking about it is also useless and a waste of time. Life goes on.

Oh yes, I am going to finish up the book I've started writing. And maybe do some travelling. Why not? I am not bedridden. Hey, life is great..

Bye, for now.

Latest Follow-up

Waiting for my turn in the ENT department.

Salam and hello to all,

I am now at the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital in Alor Star, waiting for my turn to see the doctor for my follow up. Upon registering, I was given my calling number, 865. And the doctor is now seeing a patient whose number is 825. Phooh! 40 patients to go before my turn.

Well, from past experience, I expected this to happen. So, I made sure I brought along my laptop. So, here I am at the ENT department.

I'll keep you updated on the follow up.
Bye, for now.
