2nd visit: Jun. 8, 2011
He said that the bleeding hadn’t appeared for the past week ever since he took the medicine for the first day. But in his previous treatments, the bleeding never stopped but only a smaller amount.
3rd visit: Jun.14, 2011
He ate some hot food incautiously and a little bleeding came back but it was not as severe as before. Advice: continue the treatment to consolidate the effect.
4th visit: Jun. 22, 2011
The bleeding didn’t appear for the past week. Lower back and leg pains were alleviated.
Feed backs on Jul.20 and Jul.27: the bleeding hadn’t appeared any more.
Half a year later, his son came to visit me and told me that his father’s situation was very stable and the bleeding never happened ever since.
