A 30 year old teacher presented with a progressive abdominal distension. It was painless, thus she waited until she could not hide it anymore in her loose outfit (jubah). She just smiled broadly when her colleagues tegur; anak keberapa tu? knowing very well that she was not pregnant.
She came to the gynecologist. This is one of the CT-scan pictures: large ovarian cyst with features of cancer.
This is the removed specimen; well encapsulated tumour but with features of cancer on CT - Oophrectomy (removal of the ovary) was done by the gynae. I came in the clear the omentum and the appendix; the organs that are usually affected by cancer seedlings.
And now she is waiting for her chemotherapy.
Kalaulah dia datang lebih awal . . . . .malangnya kalau, kalau, . . . . . . . . . . . .kalau !
Mungkin ini dah jadi budaya kita?
seperti yang terjadi padaku siang tadi;
bersesak-sesak bayar saman lalulintas tertunggak
di saat-saat akhir.
