God Allow My Wife Diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Cancer (Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma)
Through this blog I want to share about my wife journey fighting nasopharyngeal cancer (nasopharyngeal. My aim in writing this blog in order to share our experiences and help others
My wife complained as there was water on the left ear. We tried go to an ENT doctor who said the most famous in Bandung.
At that time the doctor's diagnosis is because my wife to swim even though she got flu. Then there was some fluid from the nose that goes behind the eardrum. Then my wife's eardrum was injected. Liquids that are behind the eardrum aspirated.
My wife felt better after being sucked. But back to feeling uneasy in her ears after a few days. So we went back to the doctor for treatment. Doctors back in action and gave anti-biotic. My wife back and forth to the doctor for treatment was up to 6 times. Then my wife was complaining of pain in her left cheek near her ear. The Doctor too busy for many patients and practice until dawn. So the doctor less attention.
Because there is no progress and we think her doctor less attention we tried to go to another ENT specialist in Bandung. It turns out the same only given flu drugs and antibiotics.
After treatment 2 times to this ENT spesialist we tried to one large hospital in Bandung. My friend said there was a good ENT doctor there. But it turns out same action is given only flu, pain, and antibiotics medications.
Because back and forth to the doctor is also not recover nurse told me that the doctor tried to another spesialist because she is the chief of the ENT departement at the hospital.
The chief doctor asked my wife to have an X-ray at head area because of pain in left cheeks The doctor also gave flu medicine and nasal spray.
After the X-ray result cameout the doctor recommended my wife to consulting to jaw specialist. Due to the ENT doctor can not read the X-rays. Ouch why asking to got X-ray if she can not read the result. F*ck
Finally we consult the jaw specialist. The jaw spesialist gave diagnosed that my wife left cheek got pain because my wife's teeth was extracted so that the process of chewing is not perfect so that the hinge cheek so shifted. It is advisable to attach dentures, the price is very expensive.
I did not understand how come my wife who is beginning her pain in the ear but should attach dentures?
Then my wife's friend recommended to see Prof Helmi in Salemba. She said this ENT specialist is a good one. Because we got not good results in Bandung so we tried to go to Jakarta to see Prof Helmi.
Without prejudice anything we were going to Jakarta. After hearing my wife's treatment history Prof Helmi did endoscopy and found a big bump on the back of my wife's nose. Prof Helmi suggested to do biopsy and post eartube in my wife's ear so that its fluid exit.
We were confused and in shock at the time because we did not understand what it all about and its cost is also expensive. At that time because I want my wife to have a speedy recovery then I approved all actions that suggested by Prof Helmi.
After surgery finish, Prof Helmi said we should wait for the results and hope his diagnos was wrong. Hopefully just a benign tumor. We had mixed feelings at the time.
Sunday through Thursday we pray that the good results of his test. On Thursday I called Prof Helmi. As it turned out, God willing another. He let my wife diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer. The world is crumbling to hear the verdict. We can only pray that the Lord was with us and heal my wife.
Sightings biopsy results:
We were asked to family and friends, where we had to go. We were told for nasopharyngeal cancer treatment we must go to Singapore or Hongkong. Because Hong Kong is far and said the medical costs are more expensive then we choose to Singapore.
Why not seek treatment in Indonesia? Frankly I was disappointed with doctors in Bandung. My wife's late diagnosis in Bandung. Diagnosis weird like pairs of dentures. Also whole family suggest to have treatment in Singapore. Honestly we had not enough money for treatment there. But I want the best treatment for my wife.
I do not mean to discredit the doctor or hospital in Bandung. I do not mention names here. I create this blog to share with readers the journey of all my wife's treatment experience and hopefully be a blessing for readers
