Moderator: Today we have invited Zhuang Zedong and his wife Sasaki Dunzi to solve the mystery of this problem for you. First of all, let us welcome both of you.
Moderator: At such an important moment, you did not appear in the main venue. What did you do at that time?
Zhuang Zedong: Because it was also promoting the Olympics at that time, I went to various places to promote it throughout the months. At the end of July, I felt bad and I went for a checkup. At that time, I had blood in my stool a year ago. The cancer is at an advanced stage as soon as it is checked. It is already in the late stage of rectal cancer, and it has metastasized to the lymphatics and to the liver.
Moderator: Then why didn't you find it before, and then treat it earlier?
Zhuang Zedong: He said hemorrhoids, we always treat it as hemorrhoids, but it took a year and a half to two years.
Moderator: Do you feel anything after you know this news?
Wife: I feel that the problem is very serious, because my father died of rectal cancer, so the blow was relatively serious, but the doctor asked me if I was hiding it from him? Or what to do?
Moderator: But, you know, such a piece of news, if you tell him directly, it may have a big impact. Have you figured out a way, how to make a roundabout?
Wife: Table tennis players are very good at observing small things, and they have better eyes.
Moderator: Everyone can see such a small ball.
Wife: Yes, the degree of rotation, so I can't hide it at all, so I can only face it.
Moderator: I have always felt that table tennis players, especially famous athletes like Teacher Zhuang, have experienced so many very important games. I have always felt that your psychological endurance is many times better than we don't know. When you know the result, you feel an inner impulse.
Zhuang Zedong: It turned out that I had never experienced this before and didn't feel it. When faced with this problem later, of course, anyone who heard this problem was shocked and shocked to everyone.
Moderator: Yes, some fainted on the spot.
Zhuang Zedong: Then I won't be like this, because I drove the car, so I told the doctor at that time because she was called first. As soon as I called her, I immediately felt that this was not right. I said there was something here, it was too powerful. He called me and said, I said the doctor, tell me directly, don't hide it from me, I said that I can face it directly.
Zhuang Zedong: He told me that you were already in the middle and late stages. I thought that adding Chinese characters was still a buffer for me. In fact, I was already in the late stage. Therefore, I hope that as long as you have stool bleeding, you must have further examinations and do not let it go easily and cause serious illness.
Moderator: You know the supreme glory when you were young. Then you have experienced the ups and downs of your life, and then in your old age, after suddenly knowing that you have cancer, you don't feel why this is a tease of fate, will you feel unfair?
Zhuang Zedong: Because when I heard it in China, facing is life and death, and the element of death is very large, and the survival is very narrow. When I heard about this, I also told her, what can I do to deal with this problem? You have to contempt strategically and pay attention to it tactically, so I say you can’t just contempt. Just say that the mentality is good.
Moderator: Good mentality, it's useless without treatment.
Zhuang Zedong: A good mentality is called strategic contempt. If you don't treat it, this is called tactical contempt. These two contempt you will not get better. So, on the one hand, solve this mentality problem. So, you asked me just now, saying that when you are playing, you will fight for Japan, the world champion. The heads of the rostrum are all sitting there, with 10,000 spectators, and letting you on the court means you win. It is through playing ball, not only the technique is practiced. In addition to the technique, it is a temperament, a psychology, and a way to get rid of distracting thoughts, because after doing that, it’s the point. This can only be done when
Moderator: So, you have seen your athlete's career for so many years, and then again, when you are driving, how do you eliminate distractions and face this matter?
Zhuang Zedong: Yes, so after this matter, I think how could I get this matter? This is the first. The second was that the doctor had already said it, but in fact I thought about what the doctor said. Some of them are not necessarily 100% correct. What's the matter with this, a miracle. What is a miracle? Miracles are generally not easy to happen, but when I am playing, I can tell you this way. In many cases, when the eyes are widened, the heart is wide, and things happen miraculously, but your eyes A stare, a heart rushing at it, that is playing ball, then you face this time, what do you do? So, I told her at that time, don't worry about it, we should eat, play, and treat when we get treatment. Everything is facing, so at that time, when I go home, I will fly a kite, and when I get home, I will fly a kite.
Zhuang Zedong, the most legendary hero of the Chinese table tennis era, he is the first person in China to win three consecutive World Table Tennis Championships. In the 1960s, China urgently needed to open up its diplomatic situation. During the 1971 World Table Tennis Championships, Zhuang Zedong met and exchanged gifts with American athlete Cohen. This small act started the ping-pong diplomacy that shocked China and foreign countries.
In that special era, Zhuang Zedong's fate also took a major turn. From the chairman of the National Sports Commission to the coach of Shanxi Sports School, from ending his first marriage to remarrying with a Japanese woman, Zhuang Zedong's life experience can be described as twists and turns. In his later years, unfortunately, he suffered from rectal cancer, which made his life more mixed.
Moderator: Teacher Zhuang, look, we have prepared these cups. There are peppers, lotus seeds, and sugar. This is vinegar, sweet and bitter. I especially want to know the various tastes of life. Do you think it will Which stages represent your life?
Zhuang Zedong: Sweetness is also very short-lived. Suffering has been with me all my life, and it has always been like this since I was born. Therefore, I think life should be hard work and hard work. It is the most important thing I have gained in my life, because only from this hard work, From this, my life can be rich and colorful.
Moderator: Tian Tian, when do you think it is?
Zhuang Zedong: Sweetness means that after you get results, it will be so sweet, and it will soon disappear.
Moderator: It is sweet and very short. Sour? When will my heart feel sour.
Zhuang Zedong: That suffering, it is really sour. Everyone is sour, because what was caused by that era was not caused by a single person.
Moderator: How about spicy?
Zhuang Zedong: There will always be unfair things, you just need to treat them correctly.
At the end of July 2008, after examination, it was found that Zhuang Zedong's rectum had been blocked by nearly four-fifths of the tumor. If it is not removed immediately, intestinal obstruction is prone to occur, and cancer cells have spread to the liver and other parts. The situation is very critical. At this time, the doctor suggested that Zhuang Zedong undergo surgery immediately, which is scheduled to be the day before the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, August 7. Fate made a joke with Zhuang Zedong again, because August 7 is a very special day.
Moderator: This day is a very important moment for Teacher Zhuang Zedong, because August 7 is his birthday. So, I said, he was born in sports, and his birthday is one day short of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. It was birthday again, and there was such an important event the next day. What was your mood at that time?
Zhuang Zedong: That's very uncomfortable. You think you have just finished the operation, and the intestines have smashed 21 cm, and the blade is 20 cm. I have inserted so many tubes, I have experienced so many, I have been an athlete in my life, I have no injuries, I have no illnesses, and I have no injuries.
Moderator: This is also a miracle.
Zhuang Zedong: Yes, I have never been hurt in my life. So, when I came to this at once, the taste was uncomfortable. At that time, it was not ordinary uncomfortable.
Moderator: And I know, there was actually an episode at that time, that is, Dunzi has been waiting for you, and then you can't get through the anaesthetic for a long time and can't wake up. is it?
Zhuang Zedong: The anesthetic has doubled the amount of anesthetic, so when the eyelid comes out, the eyelid cannot be opened.
Moderator: Why do you take so many anesthetics because you are afraid of pain?
Zhuang Zedong: No, you ask her.
Moderator: What's the matter?
Zhuang Zedong: He usually does a hundred push-ups for physical exercise.
Moderator: Do a hundred shots in one go.
Zhuang Zedong: You can still do a hundred strokes, one hundred before the operation. In one breath, three stools did it in the air.
Moderator: I can't do a hundred times a month now.
Wife: There are still two or three hundred a day. At that time, his muscles were so tight that they couldn't be opened with normal anesthetics, and only opened after the second shot.
Moderator: His abdominal muscles are too good and too thick.
Wife: So, he originally came out at one point, but he came out at two points.
Moderator: Then he couldn't wake up with such a large dose of anesthetic for a long time. At that time, his wife was anxious to death.
Wife: I kept asking the nurse, I said what was going on and what was going on, and she said it was okay. If something goes wrong, the doctor will look for you, so you can rest assured and wait. Therefore, several of us have been waiting.
During the operation, the doctor removed the cancerous part of Zhuang Zedong's colon. After the operation, he became very weak and his weight gradually dropped from 150 kg to 130 kg. The cancer cells that originated in the colon have metastasized. For further treatment, Zhuang Zedong often travels to and from hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai. In just one and a half years, he has undergone 1 major operation and 4 interventions. Treatment, 16 chemotherapy.
Moderator: When we watched the short video, we invited another one, who is also a good friend of Teacher Zhuang, and he is also our cancer expert, Dr. Shen Lin from Beijing Cancer Hospital, welcome her. What are the changes in the incidence of colon cancer patients like Mr. Zhuang?
Shen Lin: Now that our country’s diet has changed, it has become more westernized. Therefore, the incidence of colon cancer has been increasing year by year, and it has basically caught up with the incidence of European and American countries.
Moderator: Does his incidence have sex and age characteristics?
Shen Lin: Generally speaking, men are taller than women.
Shen Lin: This has something to do with his eating habits. He likes a meat diet. In addition, people say that it is difficult to cure. This chronic inflammation is also one of the causes of tumors.
Shen Lin: This does not seem to exist, because Mr. Zhuang is a very good-minded person. When he came for the first time, we usually explained the situation to our family members. I was very impressed. When I saw him for the first time, what was my condition, my rectal cancer, I had already finished the operation.
Moderator: He said it himself.
Shen Lin: He said it himself, my liver metastasis is not a place.
Moderator: What he said is like talking about others.
Shen Lin: Yes, it seems to be talking about other people's affairs, and his mental state is very good. At that time, he had already undergone an operation, a major operation, and a major intervention. Then came to me, I think it's really different. It gives us a special feeling that you can communicate with him and discuss together the treatment and difficulties we face next.
Moderator: Anyway, I think if I don’t talk about it now, or if I don’t have so much multimedia promotion, I would like to talk about what activities Mr. Zhuang Zedong will participate in. You can't tell at all. I really can't see it, my face is full of red light.
Shen Lin: He is a very infectious person. I have done about four or five chemotherapy sessions with me, including eight drugs, and developed a lot of rashes on his body. Later I said, how do you feel? He said, I have nothing to do, and then in our office, we have a lot of young doctors, he said, I will do this squat for you, and I will do a lot of it very quickly, I said don’t do it, don’t Done. I know your physical condition.
Moderator: That's very tired. If you don't believe this, you can stand up and try it now. Just stand up, then squat down completely, and then stand up again. Let me go to high school. At that time, I could do 13 at most. Then he couldn't walk for several days. You can still do that, you can do this after the operation.
Shen Lin: Moreover, after he has undergone several drug treatments, this shows that I think there are two aspects. One is that the toxicity of the current drugs has been significantly reduced. The second is that his physique and his mentality are particularly good. He faced it very positively and quickly adjusted his state to adapt to your treatment. Therefore, everyone thinks that the treatment of this tumor is not so terrible. It is not that after I use the medicine, I will be in bed after I undergo chemotherapy, and I cannot lead a normal life. It also includes the activities of Mr. Zhuang. He will tell me when I have such an activity, and you have to adjust it slightly at this time.
Moderator: In one and a half years, I experienced a major operation, four interventions, and 16 chemotherapy. I think he is an iron man. When his body cannot bear it, the things that his body bears will slowly transform into his mind. But, at this time, if you have a wife and then such a good doctor, who would you be more willing to communicate with to speak your own words? It's uncomfortable.
Zhuang Zedong: It's uncomfortable. In fact, it's uncomfortable during chemotherapy. The hands are swollen. You can't touch cold water. I couldn't find my blood vessel. When the nurse gave me the injection, I couldn't find my blood vessel. At that time, I was also worried. I said you can't find it here. What do you think? Going up, I said, can I find it here? Have to go up. I was scared. I said that this is not good, this old chemotherapy, I can’t find my blood vessels, it’s troublesome, isn’t it on the liver? Let this tube be pierced into the liver. It’s called something.
Shen Lin: Mr. Zhuang, this is the case now. He has been cured for a long time. He has a good understanding of the whole treatment process.
Moderator: Teacher Zhuang, you tell the truth.
Zhuang Zedong: Tell the truth.
Moderator: Are you really not that particularly painful, or when you feel that you cannot bear it?
Zhuang Zedong: So, when using that medicine, it is also uncomfortable. To what extent? The doctor used something called (Ebitux), the rash all over the body.
Moderator: Are you allergic?
Zhuang Zedong: No, it is a response to medicine.
Moderator: It's just a reaction.
Zhuang Zedong: And paronychia, that nail, all my nails are broken. The nails under my feet are also cracked, and walking hurts from the cracks, and the water flows. Of course, I have not yet reached the level of running water.
Zhuang Zedong: The same goes for this sole. Except for this, when I touched my skin, it looked like a mangy dog. It was very thick. It was very thick, not delicate skin, it was all that kind. And my wife sometimes scratches me when it itches, and she loses a layer of white when touched. She oiled my feet every day, and they were all dry and cracked. It was so painful. This was affected by walking, so I went to Dr. Shen. I said Dr. Shen could not do it. This affected my life. So, after this thing, I gradually understood what quality of life is. I didn't know what quality of life is, but then I knew what quality of life is, and it cannot affect my normal life. People who can live a normal life are two words, take care of themselves. If they can take care of themselves, they are called quality, and if they can’t take care of themselves, they are called no quality of life.
After Zhuang Zedong fell ill, in order to fight cancer, many friends suggested that he climb the mountain to strengthen his body, or practice Tai Chi to cultivate his body. In the end, Zhuang Zedong chose to practice calligraphy. In his slick ink, calligraphy was not only a hobby, but even to the degree of obsession. Calligraphy became his indispensable spiritual sustenance during the days when he was fighting against cancer.
Zhuang Zedong: At that time, many people made me believe in Buddhism. Reading that Buddha, I said it was too delaying. Later, I thought, when I was writing, I thought of Brother Fan Zeng. At that time, you thought Fan Zeng had also suffered from this disease a few years ago.
Moderator: He is a colon polyp.
Zhuang Zedong: Yes, then, the doctor will give him a drip. The general drip is on his hand, he said it is on his foot. This foot hurts, you know? After the kick, he gave him a drip while he was able to paint with his hands. You said it was amazing.
Zhuang Zedong: It's amazing, this is our brother Fan Daeng. This is a. The second one is called Tian, which is equivalent to playing Wu Song. He is very good at playing Wu Song. As a result, he broke his leg or broke his leg during a performance. The guy who took the bone, broke him and took him. After it broke, his leg became disabled, and he was limping when he walked. Then, his artistic career would be gone. Then, Gai asked Tian to go on the bed, then stretched this one up, kicked it against the wall, kicked off the newly connected leg again, and reconnected it to me.
Zhuang Zedong said that he could face life and death because he believed in Chairman Mao's words: "The greatness of life, the glory of death." Zhuang Zedong believes that birth, old age, sickness and death are a normal thing. He also advocated that everyone should be educated about life and death in advance, not only see life one-sidedly, but be able to face death directly, and seek truth from facts about the circumstances of death, otherwise it would be easy to get frightened when they hear "death". When he spoke, his expression was serious and his eyes were firm. Speaking of how to regain a good mood to face the few years of being sentenced by a doctor, Zhuang Zedong said that the old Chairman Mao's words that helped him the most are "Do everything and think ahead." "In the past, someone always asked me to explain Chairman Mao's words. I said, the meaning of this sentence is "To solve a problem, we must first solve the mood. If you don't solve the mood, you can't get things done. ""He said that his current life is very rich: exercising, practicing calligraphy, playing video games, writing blogs, flying kites, reading books and watching Peking opera.
Speaking of watching Peking Opera, Zhuang Zedong came to his spirits, and his wife Atsuko also smiled tacitly. It turns out there is a story in it. According to Zhuang Zedong himself, “I love Peking opera because I was influenced by my family a long time ago. My father is a fan of Peking opera and loves Xiaosheng to play Zhou Yu; my elder brother Zhuang Zejing is a famous actor in Shanghai People’s Art Theater. Hua Lian, since I was young, I have liked the old students, Hua Lian, and Tsing Yi of Peking Opera. In the middle of the last century, I and famous actors in Peking Opera were good friends. In front of Mr. Ma Lianliang, I sang "Borrowing the East Wind"; in Mr. Qiu Shengrong In front of me, I sang "Exploring the Imperial Tombs"; in front of Mr. Zhang Junqiu I sang "Second Entry into the Palace"; in front of Sister Zhao Yanxia I sang "Bibo Fairy"; I am not only good friends with them, but also their children Good friends, I have been in constant contact for decades. During the "Cultural Revolution" I sang the piano accompaniment "Red Lantern". For this reason, I went to a Chinese opera school to learn singing skills from their young actors and improve my Peking Opera singing level."
When Zhuang Zedong visited Japan as a world champion in table tennis, Atsuko had a good impression of the handsome world champion who sang Peking Opera on Japanese TV. Later, after the two met, Zhuang Zedong often took Atsuko to watch Peking opera together. Atsuko couldn't understand, Zhuang Zedong explained the plot to her in an inviting way. Atsuko also slowly fell in love with Peking Opera. Until now, as long as there is Peking opera on TV, Atsuko will watch Zhuang Zedong with him, never changing channels. Moreover, Ms. Atsuko herself has become a theater fan herself, likes to listen to Tsing Yi, Laosheng, Dahualian, especially Xiaohualian.
Chatting with Zhuang Zedong, I can feel that this is a person who has been working hard. He smiled and admitted that he is a book-loving person, especially biographies of people, such as the biography of Chairman Mao and the biography of Premier Zhou. He said that he learned about the lives of great men, and it would be very encouraging to see how they overcome hardships. He said that he must take notes when reading books, and he himself loves to extract famous aphorisms and beautiful poems. Back then, Zhuang Zedong confessed to Dunzi that he borrowed a poem from Mr. Chen Jiangong:
As long as the stars are still shining in the sky,
We don’t have to be afraid of the ups and downs of life,
Let others be the pride of life,
Our mission is always to open up!
Now, every time he is asked to write an inscription, Zhuang Zedong will leave the right sentence "Lan Feng Mei Bone, Enlightenment".
