“Where is the injury? Does any of his bones break out? How’s he doing?”
Inside the elevator, Fang Qiu continued to inquire.
“The injury is in the left shin. There’s no visible bone but it appears deformed.”
Answered the nurse.
Fang Qiu frowned.
A deformed shin could be a very serious problem.
Normally a fracture wouldn’t cause a limb to deform unless it was too severe.
Fang Qiu was closely followed.
Han Yuxuan, Jiang Miaoyu, Jiang Mengjie, and Su Zimo were amazed.
They didn’t expect Fang Qiu to be this well respected in the hospital. A patient actually named him for treatment. No other doctors were allowed to handle his wound.
Such a matter was not common in hospitals.
Fang Qiu seemed to have quite some prestige in the hospital judging by the nurse’s attitude towards him.
They couldn’t help wondering what Fang Qiu had done in the hospital only a few weeks into the semester to earn such prestige.
They came up to the seventh floor and the elevator door opened.
Fang Qiu and the nurse went out first, followed by the rest of them.
As soon as they stepped out of the elevator.
Fang Qiu noticed the corridor of the department of orthopaedics was completely packed with doctors, nurses, and the patient’s visitors, ready for a show.
“Dr. Xiao Fang is here!”
“Make some room. Let Dr. Xiao Fang pass!”
Once Fang Qiu appeared, the crowd began to yell in the corridor.
As they yelled, they cleared a path for Fang Qiu to pass.
Raising his eyes.
Fang Qiu saw a middle-aged patient lying in the middle of the corridor on a separate bed placed against the wall.
“Dr. Xiao Fang, help me!”
Hearing the crowd’s calls, the middle-aged man looked up and lifted his upper body in pain, begging Fang Qiu.
“Don’t move. I’ll do my best.”
Fang Qiu moved forward to stop the middle-aged man’s movement and felt the broken bone with his hand.
It was immediately obvious.
The patient’s left shin had a comminuted fracture as he had expected, with many small fragments of bone, scattered by the impacting force and punctured in the flesh.
“Send him into the consulting room and no access is granted to anyone.”
After learning about the patient’s condition, Fang Qiu said to the nurse next to him at once.
Several paramedics immediately pushed the bed.
Fang Qiu entered the consulting room first and began to disinfect his hands.
As Fang Qiu was cleaning his hands, Han Yuxuan sneaked into the consulting room and checked the patient’s condition.
Realizing how serious the patient’s condition was, Han Yuxuan put on a frown at once.
At this time.
Fang Qiu finished cleaning his hands and returned.
“In this cas, you are still treating him with your boneset techniques?”
Han Yuxuan turned to Fang Qiu and asked.
Fang Qiu nodded, feeling positive.
Han Yuxuan laughed with a trace of anger and said, “You either are not qualified for being physician or have no clue about how serious a condition we are facing or you know but don’t care like a trickster or a liar.”
After, he gave a cold groan and turned around to the patient suffering in the bed, “You are having a comminuted fracture. Under these circumstances, the broken bone pieces are scattered all over. Many of them have stuck in your flesh. The bone setting technique alone is not enough. I advise you to have a surgery.”
Hearing that, the middle-aged man on the sick bed suddenly felt hesitant.
He trusted Fang Qiu but his shin made him very flustered, very afraid of becoming disabled.
He insisted on waiting for Fang Qiu because he believed that Fang Qiu would not harm him.
But this young man did have a point.
At the same time.
Many students from other universities who had followed Fang Qiu here as well as the crowd that had been waiting in the corridor for a show all gathered in front of the consulting room, looking at Fang Qiu with doubts.
“Dr. Xiao Fang, this…”
The middle-aged man asked, very concerned.
“I can treat your wound. I won’t object if you choose to have a surgery.”
Said Fang Qiu.
He respected all patients’ choice.
It had nothing to do with avoiding responsibilities. He already said he could treat him.
It was up to the patient.
He didn’t blame Han Yuxuan for getting into this because what Han Yuxuan said was true. It was indeed hard for the boneset technique to work effectively when it came to a communited fracture. But he was Fang Qiu.
He had the mental power.
“I trust you.”
After a long moment of thinking, the patient clenched his teeth and said, “You cured me many times in the past. I trust no one in this hospital more than you. Since you have said you can treat me, go ahead and do it!”
Fang Qiu nodded and ordered immediately, “Please leave the room, everyone.”
The nurse approached to get the crowd out of the room.
“Think again. I know boneset. I’m not lying.”
Han Yuxuan said to the middle-aged man anxiously. “Please think again.”
The middle-aged man shook his head firmly.
Han Yuxuan gazed at Fang Qiu with anger on his face and shouted, “Fang Qiu, I didn’t know you were a villain with no medical ethics! If something happens to him, I’ll sue you!”
After, he left the room.
Fang Qiu ignored Han Yuxuan completely.
After the crowd went out, Fang Qiu turned to the middle-aged man.
“Do you need anaesthesia?”
“The process of boneset can be very painful. If you can handle this, I don’t recommend anesthetics.”
Asked the middle-aged man.
“You can bear this with clenched teeth.”
Said Fang Qiu.
“Who needs anaesthesia for that? Go ahead.”
The patient clenched his teeth but suddenly pointed his finger at the gauze on the table. He asked, “Can you get me some gauze. I’ll bite it.”
Fang Qiu took out some gauze and handed it to him.
Then he fixed the patient’s left leg firmly with a medical fixator and pulled the patient’s foot gently with a stretcher.
Just like what he did in shantytown with that kid.
Fang Qiu started bone setting.
He put the main bone back into place while pulling the patient’s deformed left leg straight with the stretcher.
On the sick bed, the patient bit the gauze tightly, his eyes closed with pain.
Broken bones hurt. Setting bones hurt even more.
Especially because he was injured so badly.
A normal injury could be easily fixed by boneset. But he needs a careful, completed process.
This process was too long. So was the pain.
Not affected by the patient’s painful look. Fang Qiu focused on it completely.
He kept moving.
After successfully putting the patient’s main bone back in place, he touched the leg again carefully from up to down, confirming the resetting was a success. Then he began to feel the bone shards in the flesh.
It turned out that there were as many as seven pieces of broken bone.
After confirming the locations of the broken bones.
Fang Qiu took a deep breath.
He covered the area where the seven pieces of broken bone were located with both of his hands and immediately began to use his mental power to control and reset the broken bones.
The second piece.
Different from hand bones, shin bones had more and thicker flesh and blood. Bone shards stuck in the flesh were a lot harder to reset.
Fang Qiu didn’t have the slightest intention to give up.
His brows were knitted together and his teeth clenched.
He continued exerting his mental power.
He went on and on until sweat came out of his forehead and his head was hurting.
During this time.
The patient gradually relaxed.
The pain was not as intense as earlier.
“Dr. Xiao Fang, am I okay now?”
Asked the patient.
Fang Qiu replied in a lowered voice.
The patient immediately ceased talking, trying not to disturb Fang Qiu.
10 minutes later.
Fang Qiu finally reset all the bone shards in the patient’s shank.
He scanned the patient’s calf with his internal Qi, sealing the seam perfectly before relaxing.
He let out a long breath.
Fang Qiu wiped the sweat off his forehead. By then, he had sweated profusely that the collar of his white gown was soaked in sweat.
Fang Qiu said to the patient with a smile.
“Your fracture is quite serious. Normally a surgery is required because bones need to be fixed with a steel needle to make sure it grows back well. However, the use of a steel needle would leave a hole in either your knee or your heel, which would considerably affect your future life.”
“Now your bone is set and all the pieces are reset and re-connected. It will grow and heal well without a steel needle. Later, you need to get a cast and keep it on for two months. Keep your leg off the ground for three months. Resting in bed would be the best. Understand?”
Hearing that his treatment was completed, the patient promised happily.
Fang Qiu nodded and stepped to the door. He said to the nurse outside, “It’s done. Take the patient to get a cast. Don’t let his foot touch the ground.”
The nurse went into the consulting room, about to push the patient.
As soon as she pushed the patient out of the room.
Han Yuxuan, who had been waiting outside all this time, suddenly reached his hand out to the patient’s shank.
Fang Qiu shouted coldly at once as he grabbed Han Yuxuan’s arm. “I have just reset the patient’s bone completely. Don’t mess it up.”
“Reset completely. Do not mess up?”
Han Yuxuan laughed, annoyed, and replied in a cold voice, “I think you are having a guilty conscience.”
Fang Qiu ignored him.
But Han Yuxuan wasn’t done.
He blocked the sick bed and said to the patient and his concerned family members standing by the bed, “Your condition is very serious. How can you just listen to him? It’s all good because he said so? Who needs high technology then? You must take a x-ray scan for your fracture. You must take care of your own body.”
The patient froze.
His relatives also hesitated.
“Fine. I’ll pay for it. Let’s get a x-ray scan now.”
Han Yuxuan pushed the nurse aside and pushed the patient towards the radiology department.
The students from other universities stood there and watched. Chen Yinsheng and other university leaders who had arrived during Fang Qiu’s treatment couldn’t stop this because Han Yuxuan was doing this for the patient.
They could only wait for the result.
Fang Qiu stood there calmly with no intention to stop him.
If you want to spend some money, go ahead.
It was none of his business.
Everyone waited quietly for the result.
Fang Qiu sipped on water, quietly restoring his strength.
The crowd looked at Fang Qiu and checked time on the electronic watch hanging on the wall, feeling anxious.
They all knew that Han Yuxuan was doing this for the patient’s sake as well as questioning Fang Qiu.
Without much thinking, they could tell from Han Yuxuan’s words.
They all knew but no point to say anything.
After all, Han Yuxuan didn’t do anything wrong.
After hearing Han Yuxuan’s description of the patient’s condition, they were shocked that Fang Qiu could use the boneset technique to treat a comminuted fracture without a surgery.
Was Fang Qiu really a liar with vain reputation and no medical ethics who treated his patient like Han Yuxuan said?
Jiang Miaoyu, Jiang Mengjie, and Zhu Benzheng stood by Fang Qiu’s side without a word. They had many questions but no one said anything.
Because Fang Qiu was simply too calm.
He seemed without worries.
“How are you?”
After a long moment, Jiang Miaoyu asked in a whisper.
