Assalamualaikum semua… aku buat blog ni untuk berkongsi pengalaman
hidup aku dgn semua kawan2 aku sebab ramai yang tanya kenapa aku ambik spm
lambat….aku tulis dlm BI tau…         


      My name is Khalid Abdul Aziz. I was born
on 12 December 1987. Now my age is 18 years old. I was in form 4 at SM Teknik
Bukit Piatu, Melaka. In school, I was very active in sport. I can play all
sports like rugby, football, badminton n table tennis. But I only play rugby
for my school. I enjoy this game because it can improve my stamina n can
srengthen my muscles. Although it is a rough game but it is a good way to
release tension by tackling n pulling down the players of the opposing team..
hehehe…Other than sports, I also involve myself in cadet(pkbm).As a cadet, I
represent the school n state cadet team. I’m an outdoor person.   


    In mid July 2003, I discovered a lump on the left side
of my neck. It was 2cm in diameter. I wasn’t worried about it because it was
not painful. I thought it was my pulse. But, after a few weeks, it grew bigger
and I found another one behind my neck. During one of my camping, I consulted
the army doctor about my lumps n he said that I should be worried if the lumps
get bigger. He advised me to go to the doctor if that happens.

     In 18 October 2003, my father took me to a
private GP(General Practioner) to have my swollen lymph nodes checked. After a
physical examination of a node, he refered me to the general hospital. He was
not sure what caused my nodes to swell. 3 days later, I went to the general
hospital. There, I had a chest x-ray and a blood test done. The results were
normal n the doctor refered me to the ENT(ear,nose n throat) clinic for further
investigation. All this happened very fast n caught me by suprise. For all of
you out there one lesson to be learned is NEVER TAKE HEALTH 4 GRANTED….


     On the second of Ramadhan that is 26 October
2003, I went to the ENT clinic, bringing along the referral letter. Since that
day, I went through a battery of tests such as laryngoscopy, a fine needle
biopsy, ultra sound scan, a CT scan, and blood test. I WAS VERY SHOCKED with
all these tests because it was my first experience in my life n it was VERY
PAINFUL!!!. An appointment was made on the first December with a specialist to
got a diagnosis. While waiting for diagnosis, I found more lumps in my elbow n
groin area. I don’t really understand what is going on in my body because I
don’t really feel any pain but the ENT doctor said it might be LYMPHOMA. That
was the first time I heard of the word lymphoma. My father told me it is type
of CANCER. CANCER???!!!!! I was shocked but I felt quite calm when the doctors
said that this disease can be cured with the grace of ALLAH.

     We went again to the ENT clinic on the first of
December but I was disappointed when told that the FNAC(fine needle aspiration
cytology) was inconclusive because lack of tissue.This means more tests!! That
same afternoon, I came back to the clinic to get a node excision. The procedure
was quite PAINFUL because they only gave me a LA(local anaesthesia). I was
quite suprised at the size of the node. It was as big as a table tennis ball.
The CT scan showed that I have multiple cervical swellings. So, another two
weeks of waiting to get the node biopsy results. Meanwhile, I prayed so much
that I will survive this difficult time with patience n strength with the help


     Since that day, I felt unwell. I became
pale,lethargic,night fevers, headaches,breathlessness,night sweats n intense
itching. I don’t understand why I became like this because before this I was
active n healthy. However, for the past month I learn doing exercise the QIQONG
way to help slow down the spread of the disease. I even went to some
traditional healers, homeopathy,energy healing n took supplement. My condition
became worse n I got admitted in the hospital on the 14 December 2003. On that
day, I was very anaemic with a HB(haemoglobin) of 3.1. That explain why I felt
weak, breathless n chest discomfort due to lack of oxygen in the body. I was
way below the normal HB that is 14-16. I actually collapsed in the ward on the
day of admission.I feel thankful to ALLAH to make it possible 4 me to fast n do
my tarawikh although my health deteriorated so fast during the month of


     I stayed in the ward for 13 days. During this
time, I got low grade fevers for 12 days n I was on antibiotics all the while.
Many tests were done on me like blood tests,gave me oxygen,gave me sodium
chloride with drip,transfuse blood n lastly a doctor took a bone marrow
specimen through a procedure called the BMA(Bone Marrow Aspiration) because she
said they want to look whether the disease has gone to the bones or not. At
this point, I was engulfed with anxiety because I can’t imagine how it will be
like when they DRILL into my pelvic bone!!!!! Before the BMA, I was injected
with pethidine to sedate me n give me less pain when they aspirate the bone
marrow. After that, I had to lay for 6 hours.

     I waited for 1 week 4 the bone marrow result.
The result came on Wednesday, 24th December 2003. It shows that possibly my
bone marrow has been infiltrated. This means my disease(lymphoma) is at grade
4B which is the most advanced stage. LAHAULAWALAQUWWATAILLABILLAH…..


     One day after that, I was off to Hospital

Kuala Lumpur

in an
ambulance because the visiting hematologist wanted me to start treatment there.
The night before that, my mother gave me a haircut in the ward because the
doctor advised me to, because my hair will drop as a side effect of
chemotherapy n I won’t be psychologically affected. The ambulance ride was my
first experience. My mother who accompanied me had a tough time in the
ambulance because the driver drove fast n it was not very comfortable.


     We reached HKL at 8.30 am. We registed at the
haematology clinic n I was admitted to ward 19 which is a third class ward. My
father is entitled 4 first classnward but it was full at that time. I stayed in
ward 19 for 2 days. It was here that the doctors told me that my bone marrow is
90% infiltrated n they would not delay treatment. From their clinical findings
n from the bone marrow slides, they have a different diagnosis of my disease
that is the NHL ‘T’ cell(NHL-Non Hodgkins Lymphoma) instead of NHL ‘B’ cell as
diagnosed by Malacca Hospital. It seems that it is not easy to diagnose this
disease because there are about 35 subtypes involving many types of cells in
our body. I was overwhelmed with this newly learned fact about the greatness of
ALLAH creation. We don’t realise that we are endowed with so many types of
cells in our body n when some cells malfunction, our body become sick.
SUBHANALLAH- Glory be to ALLAH…….
