I am appalled by how Prof Adeeba is treated on social media. The comments itself speak volume on how ignorant, disrespectful and self-righteous people could be. I don’t even know if they even understand what you wrote.
That’s ok Prof, continue your effort with increasing awareness and helping patients without discrimination.
Sometimes, people just don’t understand our battle everyday, how treating some patients may go against our values, but we still do it and we don’t promote hate publicly and we don’t attach stigma to it. Just do it with compassion and love. #MedicalEthics

That is torture, bukannya membantu. Kalau lepas bersalin, kenalah minum banyak air, especially if you’re breastfeeding, otherwise you’ll get dehydrated.
Dan satu lagi, makan ayam tak akan membuat luka jahitan gatal ye. Selama saya jadi doktor and operate orang, tak pernah pulak saya tak bagi pesakit saya makan ayam. Kena makan healthy meals, fruits and veggies kena makan (nanti kena sembelit, lagi lah memudaratkan badan).
Sometimes, if you have a C-section, immediately after the operation, your gut might stop working (it’s called post op ileus), which is quite common after an operation. It’s advisable to keep nil by mouth, and normally we will prescribe you IV fluids and insert an NG tube.

FYI 👩🏻‍⚕️
Perhaps @muhammadeizat could also add his opinion here.
FYI - baca betul- betul dulu, I didn’t say don’t follow pantang at all, but choose what suits you based on your medical history. Jangan cepat melenting ya?

Only just watched the first episode. My comment on the first scene in the OT? Realistically, it’s very quite rare to do an open appendicectomy nowadays, we normally do it laparoscopically (key-hole surgery),
but maybe this patient has some other contraindications to laparoscopic surgery that we don’t know about. 🤷🏻‍♀️
At the end of a 30-hr shift (working non-stop), anyone can become delirious, you’re exhausted, no matter how senior you are, people can make mistakes. That’s why in the UK and a lot of other countries (to prevent doctors from making mistakes) we have a limit of 13-hrs per shift.

My consultant always tell me, treat your patients like you treat your own parents and siblings, you always want the best for your own patients like they’re your families. Have that attitude in you, and you will do your best everyday!
Every time when I see a patient, towards the end of the consultation, I will always say, ‘I hope I won’t see you again in the future’. That’s me praying so that every single patient that I see will live a normal and healthy life, and won’t have to see a doctor ever again!
