4th Update on Medical Treatment:
I have undertaken 4 weeks of radiotherapy treatment at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Singapore. Generally, I feel fine and healthy. There are no complications from radiotherapy treatment.
After 7 courses of chemotherapy treatment, the specialists are concerned that the liver will be overburdened, especially when platelets are showing a high reading. Hence, the Hospital has proposed that chemotherapy treatment be halted for the time being. The oncologist has assured that I am not worse off without chemotherapy treatment.
My swallowing functions are now normal.
I have a mild infection to the throat. This sore throat is causing speech problem. However, there is no slur in speech as was happening in November 2012.
During the treatment, I suffered from hiccups which affect my sleep. But generally I am well rested.
I am positive and hopeful for a full recovery. I ask all members and supporters to keep hopes high. I wish to thank them for their concern.
The lunar New Year is around the corner. My treatment in Singapore will extend beyond the Chinese New Year festival. Because of the fact that there is possibility of decreased immune system I regret to inform that my family and I will not have open house during this CNY.
I wish all members, supporters and friends a fruitful and cheerful CNY.
