Mum at SGH Day 1

We arrive at the Same Day Admission Centre located at Block 5, Level 1. 


My mum need to goes through the usual checkup such as temperature check and pressure measurement. As usual, you will be seen by a small doctor (小医生)who will take down his observations and update the case note. The doctor then ask us to wait for the ENT doctor(大医生), who will provide us more info on the operations. The ENT doctor updated us on the operation and the risks involve although it is very minimum.

You can wait at the Same Day Admission Centre but you will be chase out after 530pm which is their closing times.

I have opted for a B2 ward ( 6 beds) but she was send to Ward 55A which is a B1 ward (4 bed aircon area). Tomorrow, I will need to check with the admission office that she got the free upgrade due to no B2 beds available.

The operation went on smoothly and was sent to the ward at around 630pm. Her throat was slice and the thyroid remove. A tube was left at the throat side to collect any excess blood from the operated area.

She feel hungry as have not taken any food since 12am. She vomited a bit as she has a empty stomach. I tried to get some food for her to filled the stomach. But the nurse said she cannot have any solid food and gave her warm Milo only. She drink the warm Milo and went to sleep. I left the place after spending 10 hours at SGH.
