I don’t know where to begin but this is just a quick update on what was happened to me 4 days ago dated January 25, 2020. My son is vomiting on that day and he also has a fever and when his fever gets to 39°C, we immediately brought him to Queen Mary Help of Christian Hospital. It’s good that while we were being interviewed by the nurse, he told me that he will pee and so I asked right away if I can make a urinalysis request. To make it short, his urine was checked.
Here’s my son’s urinalysis result:
If the image is not clear, we can see that the RBC is 35-40 /hpf. The doctor said it is not normal for a child so she didn’t give any medicine or antibiotic. She told me to go to Manila East Medical Center in Taytay, Rizal or in Children’s Hospital in Quezon City and look for a pediatric nephrologist. She also said that I need to do it today, as in now. Again, it’s good that I research first if that hospital have that kind of doctor before going there because I found out that they do not have a pedia nephro. I search online for other hospitals within our area. Margarito, Binangonan Lakeview Hospital and St. Therese Hospitals doesn’t have pedia nephro. I even searched for other hospitals and found out that only Fatima University Medical Center in Antipolo and The Medical City in Ortigas have pedia nephro but since that day is Saturday, there is no clinic so I told myself that I will just wait when Monday comes.
Meanwhile, I massaged my son with Healing Galing healing oil.
But when afternoon comes, it was around 4 or 5pm I guess, when my son still vomits. I brought him to the same hospital again for a confinement but we faced that same doctor. The doctor didn’t allow him to be confined and insisted on going to hospitals in Manila where there is a pediatric nephrologist.
We went home and look for a car and went to Philippine Children’s Medical Center in Quezon City. We went to Emergency Room and when we had the chance to talk to the doctor on duty there, she said that it is an infection. Whereas the doctor in Queen Mary Help of Christian Hospital said that it wasn’t merely an infection. The doctor in PCMC requested for a laboratory tests: CBC, urinalysis and creatinine/BUN.
Their CBC is like 5 minutes process. We only waited for 5 minutes for the CBC result and the urinalysis result is like 30 minutes or more. Crea/BUN test result took a long time, it was like less than 2 hours I guess.
Here’s the CBC result:
Let’s not talk about CBC result because this is not the issue here. I just put it here for my reference.
Here’s the urinalysis result:
Again, if the image is not clear. We can see that the RBC is now 7. From 35 down to 7 without medication. I only used Healing Galing oil. I am not here to barge about Healing Galing oil. Just stating a story, a fact of what really happened. I am also not stating that it was because of that oil. I cannot tell anything. I can also say that maybe, just maybe, the machine or laboratory department whatsover, whatever you may call it, was the wrong one. The laboratory in Queen Mary hospital or the laboratory in PCMC. I am not sure!
And for the crea/BUN test result:
The creatinine is low. I asked or confirmed the doctor in PCMC about it and she explained that if the creatinine is high, it means that the kidney is starting to be broken or destroy. Hahahah! Apology for the term, I know it is not that suited. 🙂 So, in short, my son’s kidney is fine. Thanks Jesus!
Before I forgot, I don’t know if this is important but again, this is for my reference only. Here’s the referral letter we got from Queen Mary hospital:
My hands are tired now. Will update this post with prescriptions and medicines pictures.
Next time, try a second or third opinion first to other doctors and if they have the same thoughts, then do it! That’s to save time, money and emotion. I feel stressed and worried on my son’s kidney when the doctor insisted to go and see a pedia nephro. On the other hand, I am still thankful for this experience because I realized how much I love my son and this experience gave me additional knowledge about kidney and UTI. I must add, that the doctor in PCMC also told us that if the color of the urine is reddish like tea, that’s the time that we can tell there’s a problem in the kidney and if he wakes up with a swollen face and other body parts. Apology for my English. Trying hard! 😀
