Eye Melanoma Spread to Liver After Surgery
Dear Dr Teo,
I got to know about your work through a friend and I would like to meet with you next Saturday, 27th July. My name is JM. I am a 53 years old Chinese lady from Selangor and recently found lesions in my liver during a annual ultrasound scan.
Here’s a brief history of my ailments:
Year 2000 I had enucleation of my left eye due to choroidal melanoma. Since then I went for yearly abdominal scans and pap smear to check out any metastasis. I had my scan in April this year and found 2 hypodense lesions in my liver.
My eye doctor at HUKM sent me for Endoscopic Ultrasound Scan biopsy and this was done on 17th June. The test confirmed abnormal cells seen and currently I have sent the slides for second opinion testing. Results will be known in a few days. I have lost weight; about 2.5 kg from early this year. I feel weak, tired, sleepy; especially after lunch.
I am following a healthy regime; eating plenty of salads and cutting down on meat and white rice. I exercise in the morning at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes each time. I am a non smoker and non drinker. Oh, I have started taking Sabah Snake Grass juice from 27th June. I have not noticed any marked changes since but noted minor changes like warmth in my palms and less loose bowels. Previously I am unable to hold down hot drinks or blended vegetables and fruit juice without having to make a quick dash to the toilet. I certainly believe that a change of diet and attitude will bring about positive changes to my conditions and therefore I would love to meet you soon. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
Reply: See me on Friday or Sunday. NOT Saturday.
