  1. For O-X visa it has to be one of deveral Thai based policies, all expensive and poor value. O-A visa rules have not yet been annoynced. At present can still get O-A without it. There was mention in the press that international policies would be accepted but nothing is sure until the rules come into effect. These are retirement visas. If married to a a Thai national you can instead get a regular O visa and extend it annually (or enter on tourist visa and convert to O then extend). No mention so far of insurance requirement for that. You certainly should still have insurance but you're free to shop around for best value.

  3. What bank was this? (That you transferred from). I have pretty well decided to change from FTB. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. So you do not have Medicare? Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. World Nomads has a good reputation. Can apply online. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  6. That is not usual practice. Certainly would not be done in someone not currently depressed and even when the depression is current, for post dengue depression simple reassurance that it is normal and will pass is the standard of care. This combo of meds looks more like treatment for someone with fibromylagia and either gastritis or GERD. Either significant miscommunication with the doctor or a medication mix up with another patient. That could occur at the oharmacy. How good was the doctor's English?

  7. No testosterone cream available in Thailand. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. Just noticed this Are you saying the doctor om US did not recommend surgery? Who did then? Do you have Medicare? Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. Bangkok Pattays is if anything more expensive than Bumrungrad. Midrange (pricewise) pvt hospitals will still be around 600k. Even the nonprofits will be at least 500k. Thailand will not be cheaper thsn having this done in the Philippines in fact given hotels airfare etc probably more. India is by far best option pricewise.

  10. The link is to a medical travel company/intermediary which is unnecessary. Contact the hospital ditectly, in the cade of the doctor mentioned it is Bumrungrad. Which will cost more than Yanhee. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Will work (lookfor the result for nitrate and leukocyte) but far from definitive. I have deleted the duplicate thread. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. Makes no sense. To su h a degree that either there was a major miscommunication or a mixup at the pharmacy counter. Could well have been dengue and if so it leaves you wiped out for a long time. Also often causes depression. Nothing to be done in the recovery phase, just rest and take it easy and know that it will eventuly pass. If the fever recurs if course then go back to the hospital and insist on a blood count.

  13. The best knee specialist in Thailand is Dr. Panya at Bumrungrad. It is an expensive hospital but he is excellent and will not recommend anything not needed. Even if you ultimately go elsewhere for say surgery it is worth having a consultation with him first. In terms if temporary fixes options are (1) anti-inflammatory drugs if you tolerate them and (2) Synvisc injection (hyalrunic acid). Dr. Panya can tell you if Synvisc is likely to help you and also if your hiking plans are realistic. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  14. Thailand is far from cheap these days. As other poster suggested go to yanhee website. www.yanhee.net There is a price list that will give you a general idea but for something like this it is pretty individual as the numbet of locations and size is highly variable. You can get a more exact quote and idea of what will be involved by doing a virtual consultation with them which is free. Upload plenty of pix. And be sure to ask about scars. The trade off for removing loose skin is often a visible scar. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  15. Stents are not comparable to bypass and the latter requires different type of doctor (cardiothoracic surgeon). In a private hospital in Thailand this will run about 600k baht assuming no complications. Maybe 150k in a govt hodpital but there will be long waits and red tape and you need a Thai speaker to help you navigate and due to the waits you'll have more hotel bills. Both private and govt hospitals you'll have significant hotel costs post op as it will be at least 2 weeks before you can fly. Taking travel, hotel etc costs into account I would think it would not save money vs having it done in the Philippines... As you are going to travel anyhow I would suggest India (private hospital) rather than Thailand, much less expensive....assuming you cannot go back to your home country and get it done there under Medicare or national health service. This is not something you want to delay. If you need this you are at immminent risk of a major heart attack. Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
