Impressive Doctor Completes 9 Surgery Appointments Despite Suffering Great Pain

We often take doctors for granted, expecting them to attend to our needs ASAP and forgetting that they are human beings, too, who also get tired and even get sick.

A doctor in Si County, Anhui Province, China recently went viral after completing nine surgery appointments despite suffering from great pain.

Dr. Liang Fuqun awoke one morning with sharp pain on his abdomen but instead of getting himself treated first, he decided to get on with the day to complete his appointments.

It turned out that there had been a power outage the previous day at their department, affecting the schedules. Knowing his patients needed him, the dedicated doctor put his own health problem on hold while he focused on theirs.

There was a power outage in our department, so there were a lot of surgeries lined up yesterday. We doctors can’t afford to get sick. If we get sick, then the patients have to wait. I often worry about the patients. I just wanted to complete these surgeries and help them recover faster,” he revealed.

With the great pain he was feeling, Dr. Liang asked his supervisor Dr. Shi to accompany him as precaution.

During the third operation, Dr. Liang felt a sharp pain in his abdomen yet he focused his energy on his patient. At one point, he took a short break to squat in a corner in an attempt to ease the pain before asking a nurse to inject painkillers to his backside.

Afterwards, he went back to operate on the patient and the rest of those scheduled for operation that day.

It was only after he completed the nine operations that he received an ultrasound. According to World of Buzz, Dr. Liang had to operated immediately as he was suffering from acute appendicitis, with his appendix just about ready to burst.

By the time we opened him up, there was already pus oozing out. His appendix was about 10cm long, almost as thick as my thumb,” his supervisor revealed.

Thankfully, the operation was a success.

Kudos to all dedicated doctors who put the lives of their patients over their own!

Excessive Drinking of Milk Tea Sends This Lady to the Hospital with Extreme Stomachache

Some weeks ago, a girl from China was hospitalized after hundreds of milk tea pearls were stuck, undigested in her stomach and intestines. But it seems that she is not the only one suffering from ill effects brought by excessive drinking of milk tea.

Jeff Nortez Serrano shared the story of how she was hospitalized due to extreme stomachache from drinking milk tea all the time. She also shared that she loves eating spicy food. The combination of spicy food and milk tea she frequently consumes sent her to the hospital.

According to Serrano, she had enjoyed a cup of milk tea and some spicy food on Sunday afternoon, as was usual to her, when she felt sick that night. On Monday morning, she was already running a fever, but it was only that night that she began experiencing stomach pain.

The pain was so intense and would not go away even with the usual medications she takes for stomachache. She was rushed to the ER where she was given several injections to ease the pain.

At the hospital, she learned that the combination of spicy food and milk tea had nearly put her life in danger. While she was discharged the following day, Serrano was warned not to take these food items again. She was given a strict diet to follow, with lots of forbidden food, to prevent this from happening again.

Though it was painful, Serrano was still thankful that the problem was discovered and her condition treated before her stomach suffered further damage. She’s willing to follow the diet as she does not want a repeat of her experience at the ER.

Pinoy Dad Sells Banana Cakes to Raise Funds Php1.6M for Baby’s Liver Transplant

One of the most heartbreaking things that a parent goes through is seeing their children sick and trying his best to live despite the difficult situation he is in. Many parents wish they could just exchange places with their kids, so the children wouldn’t have to go through the pain.

And most parents would do anything and everything to ensure their kids will be better again.

LITRO (LIver TRansplant Operation) Babies Philippines, Inc. founder Jenny Sumalpong recently shared a heartbreaking photo of a dad who was selling banana cakes at the sidewalk. While it might seem at first that this was just another random street vendor, it turned out this dad was trying to raise Php1.6 million for his baby’s liver transplant.

Baby Aki is just 8 months old but he was diagnosed with biliary atresia, a rare condition of the liver and bile ducts that occurs in infants. The child needs a liver transplant as soon as possible for him to survive, but this would cost the family Php1.6 million!

Instead of simply asking for help and donations from people, mommy Jabee Imano Galindes and her husband would begin selling banana cakes to raise money for their son’s liver transplant.

Help poured in for the family. A lot of people bought their banana cakes while others even sent other goods like diapers, milk, food, and other things the family needs.

Others also sent money directly to their bank account, even without availing of their cakes. We hope Baby Aki would soon get that life-saving transplant…

Woman Shares Video of ‘Plastic Fish’ They Bought from a Taguig Market

It is a known fact these days that a lot of plastics and various trash items have made their way to lakes and oceans, causing problems to the ecosystem and leading to many sea creatures ingesting these, thinking the items are food.

But there’s another way that plastics have affected fish – and this was done in purpose.

May Pineda of Barangay Western Bicutan in Taguig, Metro Manila shared a video of the fish her mom bought from a seller in Signal Palengke (market).

May’s mother found the fish too nice and asked the seller where it came from. After she was told that this came from Navotas which is known for its fish port complex, May’s mother proceeded to buy the fish.

At home, however, she was surprised to find that the fish felt different while she was cleaning one. Upon close inspection, she found that the fish she was holding was wrapped entirely with plastic!

What makes this a bit puzzling is that the plastic wrapping was so cleverly wrapped over the fish that it stuck well to the fish’s skin like cling wrap, yet without creases. If you are not a keen observer or don’t clean the fish well, May and her mother believe you would probably just end up cooking this ‘plastic fish’ without taking out the possibly toxic plastic wrapping.

While the pair did not name the seller as they probably didn’t know that person personally or could remember the stall number, they warn other people to be extra careful when buying fish. And if you end up with the ‘plastic fish’, it would be a good idea to clean it well and remove all plastic materials around the fish!

Better yet, why not return the fish to where you bought them so the seller will know its fake and so you wouldn’t have to eat ‘plastic fish’, huh?
