My first time at a Columbia Asia Hospital in Malaysia !
A very calm patient. She manage to smile despite the drained energy. 2.5 hours in the operation theater to fix her broken leg.
The tib-fib fracture clearly shown here in the x-ray. Normally a result of high-impact blow on the lower leg (can also be caused by low impact).
This is the x-ray of the intramedullary nail/rod inserted in Julia right tibia.
Patient resting 🙂 Do not disturb ! Get well soon dear Julia.
Fadil was in another ward (ICU!) — He was obviously conscious and was able to talk. Showed me the road rash on his right shoulder and chest, and a chipped front tooth. Unseen here : Bruised lungs and broken ribs due to the impact of the accident, and weight of the motorbike which pinned him down on the road. Keep on smiling Fadil !
Managed to do a 2-in-1 in Negeri Sembilan that eve. Met another lovely couple, Makcik Yan and Pakcik Emary (friends since 1997)after visiting Julia and Fadil. Both retired and in great spirit. Note the change of head gear (quick shopping at Tesco Xtra ! hahah
