The big day has finally arrived for the surgical treatment of my wrist!
B35 - the area holding a number of operating theatres in KTPH. I reached fifteen minutes before the appointed time of 1.30pm together with my concerned mother and assumed the surgery would start no later than 2.30pm.
You won't believe it; i waited two hours dressed in a clean sterile surgical attire that was barely sufficient to keep me warm in the insanely cold environment!
Nonetheless, being cheerful is still better than pulling a long face.
No picture for the surgery and despite it being a local anesthesia procedure, i was blocked physically from seeing anything bloody.
Personally, i would prefer to be under general anesthesia (where you sleep); it was seriously unnerving to hear the surgeons spewing sentences like "be really really careful, that's not the right way, what's that, oh dear, gosh etc etc"!
For those who would like to see what the procedure is really like, please click the above video. Mind you, some scenes can be really eeeeuuwwww.
The 25-minute surgery was of course a success and i was surprised to find butter sandwiches, milo and a bowl of chicken soup in the rest area afterwards! Always good to have food around!
Wondering how professional the dressing is?
Ta-dah! I could not help comparing it to a pig trotter and i have to keep it on for the next few days! Maybe i can pretend to be Rockman.
It's way cooler to say it is a Mega Blaster arm cannon!
