Chapter 697: The Physical Examination at the Hospital
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Soon, they arrived at the hospital.
Si Yiyan carried Wen Xinya out of the car and sprinted towards the hospital.
Gu Yuehan followed closely behind and stared at Si Yiyan’s bony spine.
Si Yiyan had arranged for the best medical professionals and specialists to wait in the hospital, who received them as soon as they entered. Si Yiyan then accompanied Wen Xinya into the emergency room.
The doctor conducted a physical examination on Wen Xinya.
Si Yiyan headed to the partitioned room to change into an antiseptic gown before heading to the emergency room. “How’s her condition now?”
He sounded extremely austere and a sudden tension filled the air. It was as if they were in a claustrophobic space and the team of reputable doctors felt like they were stepping on eggshells.
One of the doctors answered, “Her fever has been running for more than four hours and reached a temperature of 39-40 degrees celsius. She’s already gotten pneumonia. Fortunately, she was sent to the hospital in time. Otherwise, the consequences would have been dire.”
Si Yiyan’s heart wrenched up upon hearing that she had been running a fever for four hours. “How’s her condition now?”
The doctor said, “Miss Wen’s condition isn’t too serious yet. I’ve already wiped her arms and legs with some rubbing alcohol and her fever seems to be subsiding. We’ll be putting her on some anti-inflammation drip now, and her fever should subside completely in an hour’s time.”
Si Yiyan nodded and remained silent, feeling a little thankful.
The doctor hurriedly administered the drip for Wen Xinya.
When the nurse was sticking the needle into Wen Xinya, she sensed that Si Yiyan was staring at her coldly. She straightened her spine unnaturally, her nervousness making her hold her breath and break out into cold sweat. Although it was just a simple procedure that she had performed countless times before, she felt extremely nervous and was afraid that she would make a mistake or hurt the patient.
The simple procedure that should have been performed in a brief second, took her five seconds to complete. After the pulmonary needle was attached, she suddenly felt weak and powerless, only to realize that she had already broken out in cold sweat.
Another doctor then said, “Due to the heavy impact that she has suffered in the back of her head, there are now internal hemorrhages and some serious concussions. She’s also bruised in several areas and suffered numerous abrasions. Although Miss Wen has suffered severe physical abuse, she has a strong sense of defense and her internal organs are intact.”
Si Yiyan began to breathe heavily as a sudden stuffiness filled his chest. He clutched it and bent forward while panting and inhaling. The first lesson that he had taught her, was how to escape fatal blows and attacks. However, she had never been able to perform it properly. He actually knew that humans could put these skills to use during times of danger, only when they had mastered those techniques and committed them to muscle memory.
Had he known earlier that this would happen, he wouldn’t have taught her those combat skills. The world was fair. You get what you learn.
Si Yiyan asked, “Will the injuries on her head cause any adverse effects to her brain or cerebral nerves? Will there be repercussions or side effects after the treatment? Will her brain be affected by the concussion?”
The doctor answered, “The injuries on her head may be serious, but her nerves are not affected. As long as there is proper aftercare, there won’t be any side effects or repercussions. The concussions might make Miss Wen feel giddy and nauseous or suffer from headaches, insomnia or frustration. However, these symptoms will disappear with proper care.”
Si Yiyan asked, “Is there anything else that we have to look out for for the time being?”
He remembered that Ning Shuqian had developed a mental disorder because she had failed to take proper care of her head injury, which had affected her brain. Hence, he made sure to ask for clear instructions.
“Make sure not to let the patient get too agitated or use her brain excessively. She mustn’t speak too loudly either. Otherwise, she might suffer from delusions and hallucinations.”
“Are there any dietary restrictions?”
“She should stick to a low-fat, low-cholesterol and low-dairy diet, and increase her intake of veggies and foods that will speed up recovery, such as fish and eggs!”
Si Yiyan repeated the instructions in his head, even though he had an impeccable memory.
At this moment, a female gynecologist said, “Miss Wen’s private area is clean and there are no foreign substances or objects inside her. She hasn’t been sexually violated.”
After hearing the reports, Si Yiyan leaned back against the seat like a deflated balloon. However, her condition was still alright apart from the severe external injuries that she had sustained.
Si Yiyan said calmly, “Begin treatment immediately.”
Although he sounded calm, everyone was startled and they tensed up immediately.
Actually, there were no serious ailments or issues with Wen Xinya’s health, and she did not require treatment in the emergency room.
However, none of them dared to speak up.
The doctor in charge of cleaning the wounds on Wen Xinya’s head explained, “Miss Wen suffered a deep cut in the back of her head, and it requires some tedious treatment. The scars might be hideous if we give her stitches. She needs to receive acupuncture treatment as well.”
At this moment, the Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner stepped forth to perform acupuncture on Wen Xinya. “Her wound is not too bad. It will heal in five days if combined with acupuncture and medicine. The wound will close within seven days without requiring any stitches. She will then have to nurse her body.”
The air reeked of antiseptic solution and Si Yiyan asked, “Do her wounds require special treatment or attention?”
The doctor answered, “No, they’ve been cleaned and disinfected. They just have to be taken care of.”
Si Yiyan instructed. “Send her back to the ward. I know what to do with her wounds.”
Si Yiyan then stood up and swayed unsteadily from side to side.
Gu Yuehan said, “Ninth Young Master, you must undergo a suction treatment to remove the air in your lungs. Otherwise, you’ll feel like you’re drowning. Besides… I’m guessing that there is blood in your lungs too. We’ll have to drain it to prevent you from asphyxiating.”
Si Yiyan said calmly, “Got it.”
He then turned around and entered the partitioned room.
Although the doctor wanted to speak, he dared not do so. He had previously performed the windpipe reconstruction surgeries on Si Yiyan and hence, was well aware of his condition.
By the time Si Yiyan exited, he had already removed his antiseptic gown and returned to the ward together with Wen Xinya and the nurse.
Gu Yuehan stepped forward and said, “Ninth Young Master, I’ve arranged surgery for you. Did you…”
Si Yiyan said, “I don’t need to undergo surgery. I’ll get the air and fluids drained later. Don’t worry, my condition is no longer as severe as it used to be after so many surgeries.”
Before Gu Yuehan could even speak, Si Yiyan had already entered the ward and locked the door. He had even drawn the curtains.
