Last Saturday was my third visit to Dr. Tan in Ongpin. I am not into the idea of a surgeon cutting my neck, and taking out the nodule. Yes, it’s scary, and that means another scar.
Two weeks of drinking the Chinese herbs, and I felt a bit of improvement. Before I took the herbs, I feel the lump whenever I swallow. Now, I don’t feel it anymore. I am patiently waiting that the mass will slowly shrink. Maybe I’ll have another ultrasound in the next couple of weeks to see if there’s a change.
This is what the herbs look like.
I am advised to boil each pack two times, night and morning. I tell you the first time I tasted it was super bitter. Now that I’m on my third week, I can drink it without the ‘sour’ face.
I have a friend who is also going to Dr Tan, and she says, just do what he says, and avoid the foods that he will tell you.
The paper that he gave me said that I have to avoid cabbage, eggplant, and carrots. It also included another list to take into moderation. I noticed that if I have to avoid those foods, then I have to stick into green leafy vegetables. It’s the only one not on the list.
I’m positive this will subside soon.
