so...we agreed, and there i was , waiting for my queue for the very 'canggih' machine to scan my knee. Since my appointment for the MRI was at 12.30noon, hubby had to leave me there for friday prayers, and brought nurin back to grandpa's house in d'sara..(Mak su had to baby-sit Nurin....). Hubby was a bit worried to leave me alone there, so he called my mummy dearest, and she willingly came from her office to accompany me .
Before this, i thought MRI scan is only to scan tumor alone...huhuhu..(ni la akibat suka sangat tengok HOUSE and Grey's Anatomy). When it came to my turn, i was pushed by the lab assistant (i was on the wheelchair by the way), and mummy dearest waited outside with my belongings.... Then i was to changed my attire to a drappy coat and loose the jewels and was brought into a very cold and again a very 'canggih' room. The equipments was superb... buatan SIEMENS lagi... (sebijik macam gambar ni). I had to lay done...(macam citer HOUSE), the assistant gave me a buzzer (if there is any emergency), and a headphone (it will be very noisy...according to the girl). Lagu sentimental abis...tapi the 'girl' said, it will be so noisy that i won't be hearing any songs... Then she went out...and inform thru' the speaker, that it will start in 2 minutes time and i were not to move a single muscle of my leg or the procedure will take longer than 20 mins (According to the girl again, a 'pakcik' before me took nearly more than 1 hour just because he cannot lie still on the table). The table then moved into the chamber ....hehehe with me on it, and in 2 minutes, a loud sounds starts echoed in the room..
I think my ears jadi a bit pedih la...because of the sounds... After nearly 20 minutes, the session completed, i went out and wait with my mummy for the results..After getting the results, dah laa tak paham Doctor Lab tu type apa, the mri scan lak macam baca buku komik yang tak paham...(I ni X-ray pun tak pandai tengok).
Then, my mum pushed me back to the ever charming Doctor Robert suite, and kena tunggu lagi... (waktu rehat solat jumaat lama jugak for Doctor bukan Islam...wawawa). The doctor came in around 3 pm, so he gave me my bad news which is severe torn at the medial meniscus ligamen and the good news is that tak payah operation....(because all the sendi is intact only the muscles that holds it torn), and another 2 weeks MC....(aiyoh...buruk rekod kerja tahun ni)...
Mummy had to rush back to office at that time, (she had a meeting at 4pm), so after leaving me at the pharmacy area, i was alone waiting for hubby , to pick me up (I felt helpless at first ...terkial2 tolak wheelchair...dengan barang2, and crutches lagi waktu nak bayar and amik ubat). Hubby came to pick me up quite late around 5pm, because after friday prayers, he had to go to the office to settle some work first. Nasib baik, pas amik ubat and bayar, a nurse saw me...and pushed me to the waiting area at the lobby. Takdela rasa terkial2 sgt. Waduh2....seharian di Damansara Specialist.
Oh..lupa ..another bad news for me........The bill was sooooooooooooooooooooooo expensive, menggeletar keluar credit card...RM1100...(baru satu hari...the scan itself RM900)..tulah, jakun lagi...kan dah terkejut beruk tengok bil..
The injured area (tak nampak pun...Doctor ni pandai btul)
The EXPENSIVE bill and the KARANGAN that the lab doc wrote..
Tu laa....lesson of the month....Lain kali hati2 angkat anak or angkat barang...kalau tak nak kena bayar banyak for medical expenses...Nasib baik Perodua cover RM6k per year per family member.... ;) harap2 dapat cepat laaa...dah sengkek ni.
Lesson of the day:
The MRI scan goes through the patient's body point by point, building a map of tissue types.
Ida...paham ke gambar MRI tu...? hehehehe...cepat cite kat kak yati..
