Dialysis Treatment

A friend 0f mine have her Dialysis Treatment 3x every week. That's how she live now. She was 23 when the doctor told her of her kidney problem. She was working at Pusat Kesenian Berakas that time, bahagian tanunan. Now 19 years she's been on that treatment. Alhamdulillah, she jaga her makan.

Thank you to His Majesty The Sultan of Brunei, provides medical care for Bruneians for free and especially for kidney patients for the free Dialysis Treatment. We actually have a lot of kidney patients here in Brunei too. If di luar negeri, you have to pay each treatment you do, and that is where the medical insurance is a must to have. The treatment is so expensive, that your insurance pay for your medical tu. In Brunei nada catu tu. Aren't we lucky.

I remember when i was in the States for holiday kan hari atu, i wanted to rent a car, and they ask me my driving license, id and insurance. So, tell me about that. So anyway, Bruneians should be thankful jua with the health service we have here. If you've been abroad, you will know, and you will appreciate with what we here here in Brunei.

What's the sign she have? My friend punya story, she felt damam-damam, bangkak-bangkak and nada selera makan pada awal atu. Lamah badan nya, every time. She was basically a very active person. She could not imagine she anak bungsu daripada ramai siblings would be having problem with her kidney. But so far, she's very determined to live life the fullest, and she is very strong. She went through a lot.

She was in a COMA for a couple of times. There were times she was in the ICU and families and relatives baca Yasin already for her. But one time i visit her when she was in a coma, her body bloat, and i hold her hand, i felt like she was trying to talk to me. When she woke up from that "deep sleep", she said she don't want to die yet.

Anyway, this is the pictures i took today when i visited her at Rimba. This is yang arah tangan nya. But she did once a upon a time kena put the small tube to her heart for 3months. She said that it was really painful.

After treatment

the process of removing the needle after treatment




After removing the needles, must press for 3 to 5 minutes






well, this are the needles


this is "Kidney" & goes in different sizes


Ps. The male nurse who did the process of removing the "everything", have been doing this for 17 years. Imagine how he did it. He is really really good.
