Medical Master
     Chapter 271 See a Patient in the Dormitory

    …

    After a long time, Fang Qiu finally sent all the girls away from the dormitory.

    Meeting the eyes of his three roommates, Fang Qiu could not help smiling wryly.

    “If it goes on like this, I’m afraid that I will be screwed.”

    Fang Qiu was very anxious at the moment because his time was almost running out.

    …

    “If this kind of thing happens several times again, how can I attend the examination?”

    “I can go to Central Lake!”

    A thought came to Fang Qiu’s mind. He immediately made a decision.

    With a lot of medical-case books borrowed from the library, Fang Qiu quietly went to the periphery of Central Lake alone, where was connected with the forest. Having made sure that there was no one around and few people could find it, he just sat down to read.

    …

    Under the pressure of time, Fang Qiu read almost twice as fast as usual.

    He constantly flipped through the pages of the medical-case books one after another until the end.

    …

    Fang Qiu read books until nine o’clock in the evening without even having dinner.

    After reading all the medical-case books that were borrowed, Fang Qiu just stood up and went back to the dormitory to get something to eat. Then he planned to recall the details of each medical case while resting with his eyes closed.

    …

    “Dong Dong Dong!”

    But just then, a soft knock at the door was heard.

    …

    “Who is it?” Sun Hao, who was reciting, asked directly without even having a look.

    …

    … “Excuse me, is Fang Qiu there?” a boy said, “I have something urgent to talk to him.”

    “No.”

    Sun Hao directly refused him.

    There were too many people coming to see Fang Qiu from time to time, which made the three of them a little impatient.

    “Oh, I’m sorry.”

    Outside the door came a sound of disappointment.

    Hearing this, Fang Qiu suddenly opened his eyes and asked, “Wait. I just finished washing up. What can I do for you?”

    …

    Hearing that, the three of them turned their heads together and looked at Fang Qiu in confusion.

    …

    They saw that Fang Qiu raised his eyebrows as if he was thinking about something.

    …

    … “Fang Qiu, are you there?” outside the door, the boy said, “sorry to bother you. Could you examine me?”

    It sounded like he was imploring.

    …

    Fang Qiu stood up and opened the door in confusion.

    …

    Fang Qiu saw that a tall and strong boy was standing in front of the door. He looked listless and crestfallen with a few red spots on his face.

    “Come in, please.”

    Having confirmed that he was really a patient, Fang Qiu didn’t refuse him but directly led him inside.

    “Since the patient has come to me, I, as a doctor, will certainly do my best.”

    …

    … “Thank you,” the boy came in and said, “I’m Xiao Gao.”

    Fang Qiu asked, “Well, what do you want me to help you with?”

    …

    …

    … “This,” Xiao Gao pointed to the red spots on his face and said, “a doctor of Western Medicine said that it was lupus erythematosus after checking.”

    …

    … “Lupus erythematosus?” Fang Qiu frowned and asked, “why don’t you go to a large hospital of Chinese Medicine?”

    …

    … “I did,” Xiao Gao said with a bitter face, “I have gone to a lot of hospitals, but none of them could cure me. Besides, I have spent a lot of money on this disease. Now I don’t have any money at all and I dare not ask my family for money anymore. So I come to you to try my luck.”

    “I’ll try,” Fang Qiu said as he nodded with understanding.

    …

    “Thank you.”

    Xiao Gao nodded with thanks.

    …

    Over there, when the three of them, who were reading books, heard the conversation between Fang Qiu and Xiao Gao, they could not help lighting up their eyes and walked over together.

    They had not yet seen how Fang Qiu examined a patient, so they definitely couldn’t miss such a rare and good opportunity.

    “Want to see it?” asked Fang Qiu as he looked at the three of them.

    …

    The three of them nodded at once.

    “Bring me a chair.”

    As he spoke, Fang Qiu pulled up his own wooden chair and let Xiao Gao sit down.

    They all knew that this was not an infectious disease, but after all, Xiao Gao didn’t look good. In case his roommates cared about this kind of thing, Fang Qiu could only give his chair to Xiao Gao and he himself just sat on the chair that Sun Hao pulled up.

    … …

    … “Four diagnostic methods of Chinese Medicine: look, listen, question, and feel,” When he started to examine Xiao Gao, he said, “The first one is observation. Xiao Gao is strong. His voice is loud and his face is red.”

    …

    …

    … Just then, Fang Qiu said to Xiao Gao, “Open your mouth and let me see.”

    Xiao Gao did as he was told.

    “You have a yellow and wet coating on the tongue,” Fang Qiu said after glancing at it.

    …

    The three of them listened carefully because they knew that Fang Qiu was teaching them.

    “What’s wrong do you feel with your body, or is there anything uncomfortable with your body?” asked Fang Qiu.

    …

    …

    … “I always feel hot, including my feet. And I often feel thirsty,” Xiao Gao said while thinking of it, “recently, I have a surprisingly good appetite. When I sleep, I sweat a lot. In the afternoon, I have no strength and feel tired.”

    …

    … “Anything else?” Fang Qiu said, “think again.”

    “Oh, right.”

    … Xiao Gao seemed to think of something and immediately added, “There is a pain in my right knee and there is swelling as well as pain in the joints of the big toe of my right foot. There is a place under my right elbow where the skin is itchy and rough.”

    …

    … “Feel tired every afternoon?” Fang Qiu was surprised and then asked, “do you usually stay up late? What kind of food do you usually eat?”

    …

    … “Yes,” Xiao Gao nodded and said, “in terms of food, I eat fried food a lot.”

    …

    … “Hmm,” Fang Qiu nodded and said, “give me your hand and I’ll feel your pulse.”

    …

    A moment later, Fang Qiu stopped.

    “Your pulse is rapid and strong.”

    …

    … After feeling the pulse, Fang Qiu thought for a moment and said, “Sit straight. Let me give you a checkup.”

    Xiao Gao did as he was told.

    Fang Qiu started.

    He directly found the fifth vertebra and pressed down.

    “Does it hurt?” asked Fang Qiu.

    …

    …

    “No.” Xiao Gao shook her head.

    …

    “Does it hurt?” Fang Qiu pressed on the same point in another direction.

    “It also doesn’t hurt.”

    Xiao Gao shook his head again.

    …

    … “OK,” Fang Qiu nodded and said, “there is no tender point in the fifth vertebra. As things stand, the doctor of Western Medicine should only get some skin cells that resemble the lupus erythematosus from your red skin.”

    …

    … After that, Fang Qiu smiled and added, “Xiao Gao, your disease is not lupus erythematosus.”

    …

    … “Ah?” Xiao Gao was surprised and said, “But I have already gone to the hospitals for a checkup and several doctors from different hospitals said it was lupus erythematosus.”

    …

    … “I think that they did not examine you accurately,” Fang Qiu said, “as per my diagnosis, your disease should be Yangming fever, the so-called Yangming non-coldness. Moreover, you have a muggy lung and phlegm accumulation.”

    “Because Yangming is overheated, your physical strength declines in the afternoon. Yangming fever always occurs in the afternoon.”

    “In addition, you don’t have a tender point in the fifth vertebra, so I’m sure that you don’t have lupus erythematosus.”

    …

    Speaking of this, Fang Qiu immediately turned around, picked up the paper and pen on his desk, and began to write a prescription.

    “250 grams of gypsum fibrosum, 25 grams of rhizoma anemarrhenae, 15 grams of Chinese honey locust, ten jujubes, 15 grams of scutellaria baicalensis, 15 grams of golden cypress, 10 grams of goldthread, 15 grams of fructus amomi, 15 grams of liquorice, 25 grams of dwarf lilyturf, 15 grams of Chinese yam, 15 grams of poria cocos, and 15 grams of sophora flavescens.”

    …

    … After that, Fang Qiu handed the prescription to Xiao Gao and said, “You can get the medicine in school pharmacy. Take 3 doses first.”

    “OK.”

    Xiao Gao nodded.

    “In addition, you can buy a box of comfrey balm to apply to the itchy areas.” Fang Qiu added.

    …

    … “Is it really not lupus erythematosus? Can I be cured by taking this medicine?”

    Xiao Gao was still worried.

    “After all, my illness has been diagnosed as lupus erythematosus by several hospitals. Why did Fang Qiu say no?”

    …

    … “It’s not lupus erythematosus,” Fang Qiu shook his head with certainty and said, “the reason why I give you this prescription is that it is a mixture of Baihu Tang and Essence-preserving Pill for Epidemic Febrile Diseases.”

    “Yangming fever will be removed immediately by a large dose of gypsum fibrosum. Scutellaria baicalensis, golden cypress, and goldthread can remove the dampness and fever in your stomach. Yang needs to be sealed up. Essence-preserving Pill can be used to bring down the dropping Yang heat into the kidney and seal it up.”

    “The Chinese honey locust in the prescription can be used for this. Sophora flavescens and scutellaria baicalensis can remove dampness and fever in the liver. Dwarf lilyturf and Chinese yam can moisten your lung and eliminate dampness from urine.”

    …

    Hearing that, the three of them and Xiao Gao all gawked at Fang Qiu in shock.

    …

    They thought that even if Fang Qiu got the Physician’s Qualification Certificate, he could only examine patients, feel the pulse, and write a prescription. But they did not expect that Fang Qiu not only could examine patients but also could state the knowledge clearly, logically, and strictly.

    “I see. Thank you, Fang Qiu.”

    Xiao Gao thanked him.

    After hearing Fang Qiu’s explanation, he suddenly became confident.

    …

    From the beginning, he just doubted whether Fang Qiu had the ability to examine him, so he would be skeptical about whatever Fang Qiu would say, especially when he heard Fang Qiu said that he did not have lupus erythematosus.

    …

    He definitely preferred to trust hospitals than Fang Qiu.

    “What’s more, lupus erythematosus is the diagnosis result of several hospitals. Fang Qiu is just a student. Although he does well in study and has excellent abilities, he can’t be as awesome as the doctors in the hospital, right?”

    …

    …

    However, when Fang Qiu gave his reasons, Xiao Gao was surprised somehow. He also read a lot of medical books for this disease and had an impression on what Fang Qiu had said, so he could be sure that what Fang Qiu said was true.

    Just with this, he became confident.

    At least, it was uncommon for a person to be able to analyze his symptoms to such an extent. Even the doctors from the hospitals could rarely do this.

    “You’re welcome.”

    Fang Qiu smiled.

    “Then I will go to get medicine first. If I get better, I will tell you immediately,” Xiao Gao said and then ran towards the pharmacy at once.

    …

    …

    No sooner had he left than the three of them gave a thumbs-up to Fang Qiu together.

    …

    … “Awesome, the youngest,” Sun Hao smiled and said, “looks like a doctor.”

    “What do you mean by ‘looks like’? The youngest is really something, OK?”

    … Zhou Xiaotian also echoed immediately. “You are really excellent at seeing patients!”

    …

    … “I used to see a doctor of Chinese Medicine,” Zhu Benzheng said, “according to my observation, the performance of the youngest is not worse than the old doctor of Chinese Medicine!”

    “Can you teach us, the youngest?” Sun Hao asked.

    …

    At the sound of this, the other two people also said that they wanted to learn.

    …

    … “Yes,” Fang Qiu nodded and said, “the premise is to read ‘Binhu Pulse Study’ ten times.”

    …

    Upon hearing that, the three of them went to look for the book immediately.

    The shock that Fang Qiu had given to them was too huge. As the classmates who were in the same dormitory and in the same academic year, they had to study harder since Fang Qiu had been so awesome.

    …

    But here, Fang Qiu went back to bed and continued to watch the copper coins.

    So far, there had been five copper coins hanging before his eyes.
