Pan Jun drove the two elders. w.a.n.g Yao's car followed behind.
They arrived in Lianshan County in less than 20 minutes. Pan Jun first dropped the two elders off at the station. They were grateful and kept saying they had met a good person, which made Pan Jun feel embarra.s.sed. He left the station and went to the People's Hospital of Lianshan County with w.a.n.g Yao.
"Where's the patient?"
"At the cardiology department."
"Is he suffering from a heart problem?"
"That's what I deduced when he was in the emergency department, but the a.n.a.lysis report shows that his blood composition is problematic."
On the way up the stairs, they discussed the condition of the patient they were about to meet.
"h.e.l.lo, Dr. Pan."
Some doctors and nurses greeted Pan Jun along the way. He also greeted them back one by one. Through this situation, it could be seen that Pan Jun was quite popular in this hospital.
The cardiology department was located on the eighth floor. Pan Jun brought w.a.n.g Yao to the ward where the patient was.
The patient lying on the bed was feeling extremely unwell. He looked like he was in his 60s. He was all skin and bones, like the heavy smokers on television or refugees who had not eaten for a long time.
On the side of the bed was a woman in her 30s, who seemed to be a relative.
They went forward a few steps. The patient's breathing was uneven and heavy.
"Pan, why are you here?"
Just as w.a.n.g Yao was ready to check the patient's pulse to have a detailed look at his condition, a doctor came into the ward.
"Ah, I'm here to have a look." Pan Jun was suddenly a little embarra.s.sed. After all, he was not responsible for this department. Moreover, he did not notify his colleagues before coming. Although he meant no offense, it signified that he was questioning his colleagues' skills.
"Why? Are you worried about this patient?" his colleague asked.
"Yes, I'm a bit worried. His condition was more critical when he was admitted into the emergency department yesterday," Pan Jun replied with a smile.
"His condition is a lot better now. He's basically in a stable condition," the doctor said, also with a smile. "You're overthinking."
"That's good then. That's good," Pan Jun answered.
While they were talking, w.a.n.g Yao quietly placed his finger on the patient's wrist.
His arms were a little cold, and his pulse was weak. They were not good signs.
"What are you doing?" The patient's family had noticed w.a.n.g Yao's actions.
"Nothing. His arms are exposed, and it's a little cold," w.a.n.g Yao replied with a smile.
"Who's this?" The doctor looked at w.a.n.g Yao.
"Oh, he's my friend." When he introduced the doctor to w.a.n.g Yao, he saw w.a.n.g Yao's hint. He then chatted with his colleague for a while and made a move to leave.
After coming out of the ward, Pan Jun asked, "How is it?"
"Is the patient hospitalized due to a myocardial infarction?"
"Yes," Pan Jun answered.
That illness had become more and more common. There was also a tendency for younger people to suffer from it.
"Did you not give him a full-body checkup?"
"We performed a color doppler ultrasound and electrocardiogram on him when he was in the emergency department."
"Did you not discover any other problems?"
"No. What's wrong?"
"Did you not discover that there was a tumor in his liver?" w.a.n.g Yao replied.
"Tumor? Is it benign or malignant?" Pan Jun was shocked.
"It's malignant," w.a.n.g Yao responded after being silent for a while.
A malignant tumor meant that it was most probably cancer.
"It shouldn't be this way. With the current medical technology standard, this should be easier to judge."
"This won't do. I have to talk to him." After that, Pan Jun went to look for his colleague.
After a while, he came back and did not look too good.
"They're going to perform NMR tomorrow."
"They should be able to discover it then," w.a.n.g Yao replied. "Does your colleague have an objection?"
"Yes, a little."
Although Pan Jun's colleague was still smiling when Pan Jun went over to tell him about it, there was an insinuation in his answer. He thought Pan Jun was crossing the line.
In fact, some departments looked down on the emergency department. The doctors there normally knew a little about everything, but they were not specialized in anything. After receiving the patients, they still had to transfer them to various specialized departments.
"We already did what we could. What happens next will be dependent on them," w.a.n.g Yao said.
Through this incident, his impression toward Pan Jun had improved a lot. Under the current ethos, such responsible doctors were rare.
"Oh yeah, is it in the early stage or…"
"It's in the early stage. If he's treated in time, he may still stand a chance," w.a.n.g Yao replied.
"I'll come over again tomorrow."
It was already past 1 p.m. when they came out of the hospital. Pan Jun insisted on treating w.a.n.g Yao to a meal as a way to express his grat.i.tude. w.a.n.g Yao could not decline his invitation, so he agreed.
Pan Jun chose a high-cla.s.s restaurant and ordered many dishes.
"It's just the two of us. Can we finish all these?"
"Why don't you ask some of your friends? The ones we had a meal with last time," Pan Jun suggested.
"Okay. I'll ask them."
w.a.n.g Yao called w.a.n.g Mingbao and the others. After a while, Wei Hai and w.a.n.g Mingbao arrived. Li Maoshuang had already had lunch. Plus, he was at his mother-in-law's at that time, so he could not make it.
It was not the first time they had met Pan Jun.
"Why are you in town today?"
Pan Jun explained what happened.
"Hey, doctors like you are very rare nowadays," Wei Hai said.
Pan Jun sighed and replied, "I'm just worried."
While chatting, w.a.n.g Yao was thinking about the patient he had diagnosed a while ago.
Medication might be able to suppress the tumor in the early stage.
Malignant tumors were an obstacle that medicine was trying hard to overcome. In modern society, cancer had become one of the three major threats to human health. Once one suffered from cancer, it basically meant that one was sentenced to death.
"What are you thinking about?" Seeing that w.a.n.g Yao was somewhat lost in thoughts, w.a.n.g Mingbao nudged him lightly.
"Yeah, let's drink."
They drank beer. They lived in Lianshan County, so it was not an issue for them to leave their cars outside. However, w.a.n.g Yao could not drink, so he drank tea.
It was already close to 3 p.m. when they came out of the restaurant.
"Of course we can't. They're so strict with drunk driving now."
"Hey, why don't we find a karaoke room and sing for a bit?" Wei Hai suggested.
"Forget it. I still need to head back. You guys go ahead," w.a.n.g Yao replied.
"Let's go," Pan Jun said.
w.a.n.g Yao said goodbye and drove back to the mountain village. When he arrived, he discovered two people waiting outside the medical center.
They were in their 40s, well-dressed, and looked quite fit. They seemed to be a couple.
Seeing that w.a.n.g Yao was opening the door, they quite surprised and asked, "Are you, Dr. w.a.n.g?"
"Yes, and you are?"
They then explained their intentions for coming. They turned out to be people from the neighboring Houping. They incidentally heard there was a doctor in this mountain village with extraordinary pharmaceutical technology. They happened to have time that day to pa.s.s through the mountain village, so they especially came to have a look.
"Let's talk inside."
w.a.n.g Yao invited them into the medical center.
"The environment here is good."
"Do you want to get treated?" w.a.n.g Yao looked at the two of them.
They looked well, and their eyes were bright. Their breathing was also considered to be even. They did not seem ill.
"No, no. It's not us. It's our son."
"Did he not follow you here?"
"It isn't very convenient for him to come because of his condition," the man replied with a sigh.
"Dr. w.a.n.g, can you make a house call?"
"Sorry, I can't for the time being," w.a.n.g Yao said.
"Then, when will you be here?"
"I'm usually here."
After asking a few other questions, the couple made a move to leave.
"He's too young. Could he be a swindler?"
"He doesn't look like it," the middle-aged man answered.
"We'll bring our son here then."
The black car left the mountain village.
"There's a car again."
"Hey, what business is Fenghua's son doing exactly? Why are there cars coming constantly?"
"They're here to buy medicine."
"It doesn't seem that way."
At night, it rained for the first time after the beginning of autumn. It only rained for two hours and did not rain heavily.
With the light rain, the medicinal herbs in the herbal field on the hill seemed to have grown more during the night.
