ALL PRAISES TO ALLAH SWT

It was roughly a month after the surgery and that was the time suggested by ikelah's neurosurgeon to repeat the MRI. It was an estimated span of time, sufficient for him to decide whether the tumor was efficiently removed or not and whether there was any left-over that would warrant radiotherapy.

Alhamdulillah. Allah swt has bestowed us another of His blessings. The radiologist gave ikelah a very reassuring remark and was very positive that his pituitary looks normal. We only got to see the neurosurgeon the next day as he was away snorkeling in Tioman and sported a very tanned face. He too was happy with the MRI although he thought that there was a very tiny area that appeared a bit dodgy which needed to be clarified with another repeat MRI in July.

We also saw the ENT surgeon who gave ikelah a nasal toilet. To which ikelah quipped "Kalau bab toilet ni yang aku seram dengar ni" Essentially, it's cleaning of scabs and mucous in the nostrils using suction and forceps, which left him beaming with pleasure as his breathing became much easier after that.

Nasal Toilet anyone??


After that we treated ourselves to a tasty lunch at Yuso* Hasla*s Restaurant next to Tawakkal. The keli bakar (grilled in charcoal, I think) was superb! I told ikelah that we have to eat there the next time we're in KL, :p

He was given MC till end of this month. Hope he'll be able to work normally then. Thanks for the prayers, everyone!

After that nasal toilet, I'm sure he can smell his cologne better too. Sakit tak?

I've been wanting to try the colon flush. I'm sure one would also be beaming with relief after that 'embarrasing' procedure.
