[074] Japanese Doctors Worst Case Scenario 日本醫生的終極審判

After talking with a few friends about their experiences with Japanese doctors, we concluded that doctors in Japan always provide the worst case "death" scenario and recommends you to do all sorts of testing to make sure that you are okay. So after taking my blood, phlegm/saliva and gastric fluid, they found no Tuberculosis bacteria and the new hypothesis to explain my small lung shadow had became a case of mild bronchitis or pneumonia. Whatever it is, I still need to return for another xray two weeks later to see if the shadow in my lung disappeared or grown. GREAT! No results after so many tests and scans for 2-3 weeks. Get insurance if you come to Japan, you'll NEED it!

跟幾位有去過大醫院的朋友聊天時,發現日本的醫生都喜歡給病人“終極診斷”,也就是最糟糕的情況!然後建議你去大醫院做詳細的檢察等等。所以抽了我的血,痰/口水和胃酸之後,都找不到任何肺癆的痕跡。靠!我都說不是肺癆了啊!害我一度真的以為我得了肺癆呢!所以我問醫生...那我的肺裡的小影子會是什麼呢?他也很不確定的說,可能是肺炎或支氣管炎,為了安全起見,2週後還得回去找X光,看看影子消失了還是擴大了!靠~糾結了2-3週都驗不出是甚麼。來日本一定要買保險喔!!!

  2. Kelvin: I didn't know about this until interviewing more people =_=. My "specialist" was very young, 30+only so I felt a bit worrying to be consulted by him. I suppose a few years without NS makes him a few years experienced, but still not a pleasant experience.
