Raymond Wong Heads Home After 2-Week Hospitalization
Diagnosed with Behcet’s disease, Raymond Wong (黃浩然) was hospitalized for two weeks. Although looking pale, Raymond was full of smiles when he was discharged today. He shared the extreme discomfort he endured over the last month, but assured his current situation has stabilized.
“The doctor examined all my vital organs and said my heart, liver, spleen, lungs, and kidneys are functioning normally.” Responding to the media’s concern, Raymond also said that his reproductive organs are fine. However, he has to follow up with his doctor as his stomach is still inflamed. While his weakened health cannot allow rigorous exercise, Raymond can handle light walking and picking up his son from school.
When Raymond traveled to Australia to promote for a TVB drama in August, the symptoms of his illness peaked. “My throat was inflamed and did not respond to any anti-inflammatory medication I took. I was unable to swallow my own saliva for ten days.” Unable to eat solid food when he entered the hospital, Raymond weighed slightly over 130 pounds, but he has put on an additional ten pounds after his condition improved.
He regretted that his health condition forced him to drop out from TVB period drama, Cheung Po Tsai <張保仔>. “I hope the filming progresses well, as stepping down from my role caused the cast and crew a lot of headaches!” He thanked his colleagues for their concerns.
“I wish everyone health, as possessing a healthy body is the real wealth in life! I thank everyone and the medical staff for their care, especially [my wife], Mrs. Wong!” He is eager to return home as his wife, Kaka, has been busily juggling between taking care of Raymond at the hospital and their two sons at the same time.
