UHWC and my leg…

A lump suddenly appeared last weekend on my inner thigh, and made me feel painful even just walking around…

So I decided to see doctor at Wednesday at UHWC…

And Ohhhh Myyyy GOD, it cost me SGD 21.6!!!!! For your information, it’s about 1/75 of my monthly salary!!!! I was shocked when asked to pay for that amount, and remained shocked even after I took my medicine. So I actually read the receipt only after I left the UHWC…


10 dollars for consultation fee!!!!! Since when we need to pay consultation fee in UHWC??!!!! Maybe, just maybe, someone suggested that it’s because I’m now a postgraduate student… sheesh… 😦


The antibiotics, whatever amoxycillin and clavulanic acid, cost me 9.2/10 tablets, and the painkiller cost 1 dollar/10 tablets… I guess this is why poor people always refuse to see doctor, and so happen I was that poor student happily seeing doctor in UWHC thinking I won’t need to pay much…


The antibiotic sure is BIG…

Anyway, doc said it could be due to a muscle torn in my thigh (most probably because of some hardcore running), causing bleeding and eventual clotting AND/OR some bacteria so happened to choose to live and grow happily over that area. If the lump doesn’t shrink after I finish the antibiotics, doc said maybe I should get my leg cut open and see what it really is… =/

No exercising for now… Let’s see if how much I’ll spend for my leg~~
