LOW CHEW LONG
In Oct. 2015, LOW CHEW LONG was detected a peanut-size lump in his left armpit. He didn’t feel any pain, so it’s been neglected. In October, the lump enlarged to an egg-like size and some also occurred in clavicles. Worried about his condition, he took a biopsy in local hospital and was diagnosed as lymphoma stage IV. The doctor recommended that he should take chemotherapy but he refused due to the side effects. He resorted instead to Chinese medicines. Four months later, his condition became worse and multiple enlarged lymph nodes occurred in his both armpits and neck.
In despair, he got to know MCHG on newspaper by chance and attended the free symposium in Kuala Lumpur, which provided free consultation about cancer. After discussion with doctor and being informed of the minimally invasive treatment in MCHG, he didn’t hesitate to book his ticket to China.
In MCHG, LOW CHEW LONG was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma with lymph nodes invasion. Therefore, The Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) conducted an intensive discussion over his condition and finally decided to apply interventional therapy to him.
According to LOW CHEW LONG, he felt slight pain during the treatment and a flow of heat passed through the body. “As I trusted doctors and treatment here, so I was free from fear.”
After the treatment, he yielded good effects and the tumor had shrunk without suffering any side effect. Comparing his previous condition with body weakness, now he is so energetic that he always walks around the hospital. His attending doctor, Pang Anneng said, as long as he takes regular check-up, he will achieve better outcome and be back to normal soon.
LOW CHEW LONG and medical staff
He was surprised that he got such good effects in a short period after the treatment. “I have a friend who also suffered cancer and took treatment in Malaysia. Due to the side effects of therapy, he became weak and now he even walks with a stick, while I live like a normal person. I sincerely feel sad for him.”
With a naturally cheerful and optimistic personality, he always encouraged other patients, “Don’t be afraid and be strong, positive attitudes can help you yield better efficacy.” Although suffered from disease, he still shows great passion for life. He is so talkative that he gets acquainted with patients and medical staff in the hospital. They all speak highly of him.
He also jokingly said that, “the disease didn’t take advantage of me, I even gained 2 kg during my stay in the hospital.”
Since the MCHG was founded, it has achieved tremendous improvement in minimally invasive treatment and has benefited numerous cancer patients. In this course of serving more patients, we still have long way to go.
