  1. explain to me

    i read that the government allocated a financial aid package to fund the 300 baht welfare cards for 11million people of 41.9billion baht. by my math if you multiply 11milionX300(not every one gets 300baht, some get 200baht. i used 300baht)=3,300,000,000baht. where does the rest of the 41.9billion baht GO?
  2. Prices for Uloric or Febuxostat 40/80mg

  9. Knee Replacement

    my knee replacement was done in the U.S. in 2010 i was an auto technician for 30 years and just beat my knees. i had one done and the other done 3 months later. i was lucky and had mine done through medicare, cost me $800.00 for both knees and included rehab. facility. keep an open mind and be positive!! most people who complain about issues after replacement were not serious about physical therapy. i have 0 pain i go bowling 2-3 times a week with no problems.
  10. Knee Replacement

    i have had booth knees replaced. all i can say is physical therapy is the most important part of knee replacement. you need to keep doing it. i still walk in the swimming pool where i live and walk forward and backwards to exercise my knees.

    forgot, let me add, have you or your doctor ever mentioned a vena cava minor filter to help stop clots going to your lungs and on? might want to ask your doctor if you are a candidate for one. they are not 100%, but sure makes you confident. i have a Green Field Filter in me

    most hospitals have an anticoagulant clinic now as it has become a major issue with stents, bypass and any heart surgery and any one can can geta dvd. just thought i would pass on MY information and experience. i find it easy to be on warfarin as i test weekly with my own tester. warfarin, coumadin is super cheap(generic) in thailand and is over the counter. good luck
  15. foot and ankle

    follow up saw a DR. Pantasak Tansakul at Bumrungrad hospital, his specialty is physical medicine and rehabilition. special clinical interests: prosthetics and orthotics. all i can say is this is an awesome doctor; he spent almost an hour going over my leg and foot movements and suggested therapy that can be done with a towel at home and orthotic shoe inserts and wear a boot to support the ankle. here is a breakdown of the charges, custom made inserts 5250baht, doctor fee 1200baht, nursing and opd 380baht. money well spent!! i know people have asked where they can get inserts made, here you are at a fair price.
