From Slipping Away to Living Life to the Fullest - I am a man living on borrowed time with a fantastic life quality, thanks to Prof. TJ Wong. In 1999, I was diagnosed with colon cancer and liver cancer and all the doctors in Kuala Lumpur told me that I have only 6 months to live and, even with operation, 1 year. A death sentence to me – an active person. I was devastated.
My paths crossed with a matron one day in a hospital in Penang and she advised, “You should see Prof TJ Wong in Island Hospital and if he can’t save me, no one can.” As a man desperate for a life-line, I flew to see Prof TJ Wong.
He told me frankly that 30% of the treatment work would come from him but the rest would depend on my body and attitude. We proceeded with the operation. After my operation and chemotherapy, the half of my liver that was removed grew back to even larger than the original size and my appetite regained to normal. I can go back to work and activities which I love.
It is already 2016 now, and I am still alive and healthy. This life, I live to my fullest, grateful and rejuvenated.
The cleanliness in Island Hospital is well taken care of. Information is computerised, so when patients come for medical check-up or consultation, it is carried out very smoothly. The front entrance of Island Hospital is like a Hotel.
