Last Tuesday, my MIL was admitted to a private hospital here after she complaint of severe stomach pain. After she was CT scanned, the doctor discovered that her appendix has ruptured. She was immediately operated on. Thank God the surgeon managed to save her life. After the surgery, she was monitored for a few days and finally able to discharge on Sunday. Since she does not have any social security benefits, we have to pay in for all the hospiltalization, surgery and medical fees which came up to more than RM10k!
