Almost a year ago baby Raischa were born premature. Today she was again hospitalized due to severe pain in the abdomen part with a colicky pain pattern. We brought her to pediatrician at mid day and that’s when we found out about her intussusceptions (intestinal blockage).
Poor baby Raischa, she was all by herself when doctor scanned her using the telescopic scanner pushed thru her bottom. The scanner unable to push thru the blockage that urgent operation needs to be conducted right away. At 4pm yesterday, the minor operation went successful although in the process, she had her appendict removed. According to Dr Khor Guan Chai, master surgeon in-charge of the operation, if left untreated the affected intestines will be no longer usable and it could be life threatening too. We were lucky in that sense.
When we asked what actually the cause of the blockage was? Surprisingly Dr Khor could not provide any answer. He added, most of the intussusceptions case has no apparent cause which is common to a kidz age 5 months to 3 years.
Anyway, most importantly Raischa could regain her physics & strength in days to come. Same goes with Ma & Pa. Kita kan nak raya dah ni…
