My Medical Exam Ordeal Part II



Yesterday, I arrived the clinic before 9 A.M. I went straight to Room 8 and informed the clinic staff with my consultation to the doctor. I think it was almost 30 minutes when she got back at me to tell me that I have to pay first the doctor’s consultation fee. I went in line and was in queue for a long time. If she informed me the first time I approached her, I wouldn’t wait a long time. I was grouchy and not in the mood since I haven’t had my breakfast yet. At the doctor’s room, the doctor asked me a lot of question with regards to my health. If I have cough, fever or history of Tuberculosis. I then relayed to him what Dr. Cayanan told me. He was a bit sarcastic and told me that the blurry part of my x-ray is not a bone. My second x-ray by the way is not an APL view but a Lordotic two side view. He then told me that I should undergo Tuberculosis tests to clear me from Tuberculosis even refererring me to a Respiratory specialists (consultation by the way is 70 SGD up).

I had full blood count platelet test, skin test (Mantoux Tuberculin) and the phlegm test (Smear for AFP Sputum). The result for the skin test will be out on Tuesday and I have to give another phlegm sample on Tuesday as well. I need to go back again on July 17 for all test results.

Would you believe that I have spent 120 SGD in my medical exams? Harrr… I am only thinking positively. If I have Tuberculosis, I am thankful that they have detected it and they can cure it. I would be thankful to God if I don’t have Tuberculosis. I hope you could include me to your prayers. I need it a lot.

If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.
