    【Tungs' Hospital】Unbearable Pain! Filipino Struggled with Kidney Stones

    A Filipino seafarer, during a long voyage at sea, suddenly experienced severe abdominal pain and noticed signs of hematuria in his recent urine. Despite trying to endure it, the pain was too unbearable to ignore, so he decided to seek medical attention immediately upon the advice of the ship's doctor, arranging to go to Tungs' Hospital. After examination, the doctor diagnosed the patient with kidney stones, leading to symptoms such as urinary obstruction and hematuria. Kidney stones are one of the common problems encountered in maritime work. Due to limited food supply and difficulty preserving vegetables onboard, seafarers tend to consume foods high in calcium oxalate and phosphates, such as spinach and beans. Additionally, due to the dietary environment and work pressure onboard, indigestion is also common, leading to the deposition of crystalline substances in the kidneys, forming stones. Through ultrasound examination, it was found that the size of the kidney stones in this patient was approximately 7 millimeters and presented in a round shape. Following the doctor's recommendation, the seafarer underwent flexible ureteroscopy, successfully removing the stones with minimal harm to the body and restoring normal urine flow. Small Facts about flexible ureteroscopy: Flexible ureteroscopy is one of the methods used to treat kidney stones. It is a flexible medical equipment that can be inserted through the urethra into the bladder and urethra for the observation and treatment of kidney stones. Compared to traditional rigid ureteroscopy, this type of ureteroscope is softer, making it easier to navigate through the bends of the urethra and reducing discomfort for the patient. The doctor also reminded him that adopting good dietary habits is an important part of preventing kidney stones, advising him to increase his intake of fruits and vegetables onboard, avoid excessive consumption of foods high in calcium oxalate and phosphates, and pay attention to avoiding diets that are detrimental to kidney health, such as those high in oil and salt. This story serves as a reminder to the public that whether it's seafarers on long voyages or individuals who enjoy drinking beverages and eating meals with sauces, they are all at risk for kidney disease. Maintaining good dietary habits and seeking timely medical assistance can effectively prevent and treat such diseases. -- If you have further questions, you can visit our website or inquire on various social media platforms: ► IMS Website ► Facebook ► Instagram ► WhatsApp

    【Lee Women’s Hospital】8 years of waiting, Filipino couple finally embrace their daughter

    'I thought it was impossible, but Dr. Lee made it possible'' Imee has been married for 8 years and has never been pregnant. She went to the OB for an examination and found that both of her fallopian tubes were blocked. As a result, surgery was required to remove them. Afterward, she attempted one IVF treatment, but out of 8 egg retrievals, only 1 egg was successfully retrieved. Unfortunately, this treatment ended in failure. Later on, after hearing a friend's successful story of having babies throuhg IVF at Lee Women's Hospital, Imee started considering the option of seeking fertility treatment internationally. After a year of careful consideration, Imee and her husband boarded a flight to Taiwan in 2018. During this treatment, Imee successfully obtained 4 embryos and had them frozen. However, one of the embryos did not implant successfully after being transferred. To identify the cause of the failed implantation, Dr. Maw-Sheng, Lee (李茂盛院長) conducted a comprehensive examination and discovered that Imee had immune issues. In the subsequent two cycles of egg retrieval, Imee collected 7 high-quality embryos. However, during this time, the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. They were forced to stop all treatments and had to freeze the embryos, which resulted in a wait of two and a half years. In 2022, as the pandemic situation improved, Imee returned to Lee Women's Hospital. This time, Dr. Lee implanted two embryos, along with immunotherapy, to ensure successful embryo implantation. Two weeks after the implantation, Imee finally received the first positive pregnancy test in her life. When Imee heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time, 8 years of waiting and hardship vanished. It's delightful to hear that Imee's baby was born successfully in January, and she is a lovely baby girl. Imee wish to encourage everyone with her own experience, ‘For people who wants to get pregant, don't lose hope. Just com to Taiwan and see Dr. Lee, because he's the one who made it possible.'
