Lung Cancer: Bloated Abdomen
Dear Dr. Chris Teo,
I am sending this mail on behalf of my friend whose letter is as follows:-
I heard about you from a friend and I would like to ask you for some advice if it is alright with you.
My sister has lung cancer and now she has a bloated abdomen. This causes great discomfort and also affects her appetite for food. As a result she has to go for tapping (to drain out the fluid) at the hospital whenever the bloatedness becomes too unbearable.
Can you advise as to what to do to minimize the occurrences of bloatedness so that she won’t need to go for the tapping, at least not too frequently.
I appreciate your kind attention. Thank you and God bless you.

Dear Dr. Chris.
I am from Teluk Intan, Perak. I visited your website and read some of your materials. I will talk to my sister about seeing you. I hope it is not too late. As we have to travel from Teluk Intan, it might be tiring for her and I do hope we can get to see you and not to have to come back another time as I see that your consultation hours are only two hours at a time.
Thank you for your prompt reply. May God bless you richly for the good work you are doing.
Reply: No problem. I shall see ALL patients who come. Bring all the medical reports. If she cannot come … ask someone else… who takes care of her to come and bring all the medical reports. No need for her to come personally if it is difficult.
