【Case Report】Hemiplegia after Neurosurgery for Brain Tumor removal

30 year-old Vietnese young man Tommy got Hemiplegia on right side, speaking loss, hearing loss,right side vision loss in 2014 Summer after his third time Neurosurgery for Brain Tumor removal. Our acupuncturist Jarry started to give him acupuncture treatment on Sep 17th after he got approved to be Tommy's ECP(External Care Provider)  by Toronto Grace Hospital.  so Tommy got 2 times treatments a week  and when he got the fifth acupuncture treatment on Sep 27,2015 and he told Jarry that his right hand has warm sensation and he showed him that his right hand fingers can gently move a bit. Usually he used his left hand 5 fingers to show Jarry how much pain he feel when the needle inside his body,with 1 finger shows less pain to 5 fingers lots of pain. Yesterday Oct.1st, Jarry gave him the sixth treatment and he showed Jarry by his right hand fingers. Jarry has been surprised by his significant improvement. From Jarry's 26 years experience, usually it will take at lease 3 courses(21 sessions) treatments  for a hemiplegia patient to  start moving a bit. Tommy was very excited by his improvement and asked Jarry if he can give him the treatment everyday so he can recover from Hemiplegia sooner. Jarry told him that it is not good for him to get the  acupuncture treatment everyday. 2 to 3 times a week is best for his health condition. After one course treatment, Tommy also need at lease one week rest before he start to receive the second course treatments.


九月十号,诊所接了一个新病人,30岁的越南华人Tommy,去年夏天因第三次做脑瘤手术,引起中分右侧半身不随,同时引起聋哑及右眼失去视力,刘医师13号开始上门出诊,到其所住医院准备给他做针灸治疗,17号第二次出诊,不料院方值班医师不让做,说要经过医院管理部门批准后才行,所以推到20号,刘医师才开始给他第二次的针灸治疗,27号是他的第五次治疗,Tommy告诉刘医师他的右手开始感觉到暖和了,而且还可以轻微的动了。因为他是聋哑,所以通常他是通过左手手指的比划来向刘医师示意这针进到他体内后的疼痛程度,一个手指是代表轻微的疼痛感觉,两个手指是代表稍微强的疼痛,依次类推...到了昨天也就是十月一号,当刘医师给他做完第六次治疗后,他轻轻拉过刘医师,比划着他右手的大拇指,告诉刘医师他可以移动他的右手的大拇指了。刘医师也是感到非常的惊喜,因为根据他二十多年针灸临床经验,像Tommy这样的瘫痪患者至少要经过三到四个疗程(也就是至少二十多次的针灸治疗)才能达到这个效果,但是Tommy在一个疗程还没结束时瘫痪的那半边就已经开始有温度并可以轻微移动了。这个结果真是非常鼓舞人心,Tommy还试探刘医师,既然那么见效,能否每天给他做治疗,这样他可以好得快些,刘医师告诉他,针灸治疗不能每天做,并不是天天做效果就更好,一周两次对他这种身体状况是最合适的了。
