SIBU: Solomon Franky, the five-month-old boy who is suffering from hydrocephulus with occipital tumour, has undergone another surgery at Chung Lung Medical Hospital in Taiwan.

The boy’s father, Franky Anong, when contacted said the second operation was to correct Solomon’s breathing problem and get rid of a bone in his skull. The baby had been vomitting profusely.

“Solomon had an operation in Sibu where doctors implanted a tube in his stomach to drain fluid from his body.

“Now the doctors here told us that the length of the tube must be reduced to resolve Solomon’s vomitting problem,” he said.

Doctors took one day to complete the second surgery, said Franky, an odd-jobber.

“So far so good,” he replied when asked on the success of the operation.

He added that Solomon would probably take a month to recover from the operation.

Solomon was born with the illness where fluid was retained, causing his head to continue to swell. He is also suffering from breathing difficulties.

The baby undergone his first operation in Taiwan on May 23.
