Badj’s Journey to Healing

Update posted by kench genato On Feb 19, 2021

we spent the afternoon in chinese general hospital. Badj’s drain was finally removed with relative ease and not that much pain.

when dr. ang arrived, he told us 2 things. first was that 2 lymph nodes that were removed were infected. that meant that badj was in stage 2. the second thing he told us was that she would be fine. very treatable, no problem at all - those were his words. he then recommended a few oncologists for chemotherapy.

after that we said our goodbyes and left the hospital. it has been said if your problem has a solution, don’t worry about it. and if your problem has no solution, why worry at all? here’s to keeping our hopes and faith up high.

we just got confirmation for the follow up doctor’s appointment for friday. that’s when they’ll remove the drain attached to badj. the drain was something i wan’t aware of until after the mastectomy. it’s a made of silicon and sucks out the excess blood from area operated on.

badj’s healing has been at a slow and steady pace. the pain is still there though the medications help. still a long road ahead to conquering this bane. staying stong.

Badj’s recovery is going as expected. she’s still taking tamoxifen, antibiotics as well as pain relievers. could be better, just glad it isn’t worse.

Badj is feeling much better today! there’s some pain and swelling but it’s to be expected. she can sit up, eat, and walk a bit. just talked to the doctor this afternoon. chances are pretty good that she’ll be discharged tomorrow. thank you to everyone! yes, especially you! ❤️

Six hours after badj had gone into the operating room, she returned to her room. the doctors said that the operation went really well. no problems were encountered and that they were optimistic about her recovery. Badj spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping on and off. she wasn’t able to eat much, just some soup and rice. around 11:30pm a doctor came in and changed her bandages. more napping ensued.

We spent most of the afternoon in Chinese General Hospital. We had a meeting with Dr. Kevin Ang who specializes in internal medicine. He looked over the results of the ECG, X-Ray and 2D Echo tests Badj had undergone earlier in the week. He declared that, except for the cancer, Badj was in excellent health and gave the green light for the operation to proceed. Thank you Dr. Kevin!

Badj then had to take a PCR COVID test as a requirement for the operation. Joseph, who works at the drive-in COVID station of Chinese General, was kind enough to help facilitate the process with the filing and the forms. It all took about 15 mins. Getting the PWD ID earlier in the week was such a smart move! Normally a COVID test would cost about P4,000- Because Badj had the PWD ID, we didn't have to pay for anything. So thankful for the benefits!

We spent the day obtaining the requirements to apply for a PWD (Persons With Disability) ID. we just needed the ff:

a. Latest Medical Certificate or Abstract (for non-apparent disability) (2 copies actually)

b. Barangay Clearance/Indigency

c. 2pcs. 2×2 ID picture

d. Signature (use marker pen) or thumb mark on piece of bond paper

e. Authorization Letter (in absence of the PWD applicant)

f. A fully-accomplished PWD ID application form

The people who worked in the barangay office were easy to talk to and we got the clearance in about 10 mins.

We went to the City Hall in Quezon City to process the documents. Luckily there weren't a lot of people there. The whole process took about 45 mins. So happy we got this ID! The discounts and benefits on medical procedures this will provide is most beneficial!

Afterwards we passed by the flower market in Quezon Circle. Seeing such beautiful flowers is such a stress reliever!
