published on 27.04.2012, 06:52:10. Category: no category
One Patient, female, aged 51; it was on the fifth day post-operation of the thoracolumbar spinal space-occupying lesions when I see her. The patient had stomach distension for two days, nausea, not enter any food and water through mouth and no bowel movement since the surgery, pale face, thirst, unable to sleep, purple tongue with thick greasy coating, pulse string on the liver and spleen positions. I given acupuncture treatment after made Chinese medicine diagnosis --- cold and dampness blocked middle Jiao. The points I used was Zusanli (ST36) He-Sea Point, Tianshu (ST25) Front-Mu Point of the Large Intestine, Shangjuxu (ST37) The Lower He-Sea Point of the Large Intestine, Neiguan (PC6) Luo-Connecting Point the Eight Confluent Point, Gongsun (SP4) Luo-Connecting Point, The Eight Confluent Point, Zhongwan (CV12) Front-Mu Point of the Stomach, Xiawan (CV10), Qihai (CV6), Yinlingquan (SP9) He-Sea Point, SJ6, and TDP healing lamp on Shenque (CV8) plus lower abdominal area. The patient started to eat food and drink water after one time acupuncture, had smooth bowel movements after 2 times treatment, and began to walk after 3 times treatment. Then I prescribed an herbal formula for her 7 days orally taken, it functioned as warming middle Jiao, smooth liver qi, and strengthen spleen. 2 weeks later when I saw her, she had been recovered very well from that operation. Many cases have shown that an early postoperative treatment of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is a great help to hospital in-patients.
