Main Complaint: headache (from Jueyin area to ST8/DU24), depression, insomnia
Pulse: The pulse of the heart/ SI is impossible to feel, the other organs are stronger on the left side, and weaker on the right side (considering that he has no spleen..) .
Tongue: The tongue is swollen, slightly red and on the right side shows dark veins (the missing spleen), slightly greasy tongue at the base, (takes several painkillers, but is asking the doctors to change them all the time, and if he think they don’t have any effect, he stop taking them) .
History: car crash about 30 years ago and had the spleen and a piece of intestine surgically removed. Also was born with atrophied left kidney, so his body is supposedly using only one of them. Over the years, he cannot stay more than an hour without having to go to pee.
Broke some spinous process and some of them have not heal properly, and has an implant on C4/C5.
Since the last operation (the large intestine, 7 years ago) he feels worse "in general", his lifestyle (like some diets in the past based only on lemon and oranges for a while ) don’t help ...
He had hepatitis from an infected blood transfusion (before the ‘80).
The doctor told him he has fibromyalgia and lately is having headaches, and is depressed about his condition and spends all day crying in bed. At night he can sleep only until 4 ‘o clock.
He also does't have a bowel movement, and need to take some pills if needs to.
My real question is, what about Qi / Xue / Yin / Yang when some organs have been " removed "? I guess that despite the lack of organs, remains the meridian where we can work on... I supposed those " ghosts " organs can be considered as Xu, but It’s possible to tonify them or being missing there’s nothing to do?
