I was not well since end May   16 comments


Sorry for not blogging as I was not well since end-May. I was hospitalized for an urgent operation after seeing the doctor at 11.00 am and operated at 12.20 am the very next day after 13 hours. I was given spinal anaesthetics and was awake during the painless operation. Nothing can be said about pain after the operation! Thank you to the Emergency Ward doctors, nurses hospital assistants and the Surgical Ward of C10 of Penang General Hospital. A big Thank You from a grateful and recovering patient.

SP Lim

At my age, good health is an essential prime requirement for a satisfying life filled with happiness and contentment.
