Had Colonoscopy at Bangkok Pattaya Hospital?


likethaigirls

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

               I’m considering having a colonoscopy done at BPH. I’d really like to hear from anyone who has had a colonoscopy there. Any and all useful info, please!

E.g. Did they do the job completely? What did you think of the doctor’s service quality, including the initial consultation? Were there any misunderstandings? Would/will you get your next one there?

As for cost- there’s the cost of the procedure, then various additional charges- pathology, polypectomy, medication and so on. The total will depend on how many polyps are removed.

Did you feel you got value for your money spent? If you don’t mind, what was your total price?

Hope to hear from someone!

Have fun in fun city!

p.s. Is it raining a lot in Pattaya now? I’m not there...

Thanks for the link, Wolf Cat. I have done considerable homework on colonoscopies in general, and getting them done at BPH.

What interests me now is knowing if what I’ve read matches up with what people who’ve done colonoscopies at BPH have to say. :Number1a:

I will follow up your link. Thanks for your kind reply!

I had mine done at my HMO Kaiser when I turned 60.  What I didn't know until after the procedure, as I was asleep, was that they also went down my throat  into my stomach.  The entire process was easy except for the preparation before where I had to drink some nasty tasting crap every 15 minutes for 4 hours.

I was looking at getting this done as I've had 2 work colleagues who died from bowell cancer.

At 26,000 baht (approx $1080 aus) is that any cheaper than at home?

Obviously not, but no harm intended.

Anyone over "x" years of age needs a colonoscopy vs running a risk for bowel cancer which is WAY WAY worse than 1) Worrying about whether you might have it or 2) actually getting it. 

Death by bowel cancer is reportedly a very painful way to go. And for what reason, because one was too distracted, sissy or whatever, to undergo a 60 min or less, exam? Duhhh. :Oops1:

Just choose a competent facility and get it done. If the thought of potentially contaminated instruments giving you Hep C (and this has happened and can happen but is not likely) or the standard, more  invasive procedure gives you pause, get a virtual colonoscopy, ie CT scan w/ contrast. If the virtual shows something suspicious you still get the regular one.

Best wishes and enjoy the bowel prep. :D

Not for me. Private health cover let me have mine done here for $50.

Yes, prep was much worse than the procedure.  Some pain in the lower pipes after, but not bad.  Had mine done at BPH.  Will do it again there.  But not before I have to.  Wasn't that much fun.   Some gay (pretty sure) medical assistant had to give me an enema to finish the clean before they knocked me out & went in, but he did not look like he was enjoying himself, so I was thankful for that.

I didn't feel a thing during or after the procedure.  When my Dr told me that I was due again a couple years ago I asked him if they had changed the taste of that crap that I had to drink for 4 hours.  He told me no but that I could forgo the colonoscopy and send the lab a stool sample annually which I choose to do.

Thanks All for your replies.

usexpat46, did the doctor tell you if sending a stool sample is as effective as getting a colonoscopy?

In the end, I suppose the quality of the doctor is more important than the hospital, costs excluded.

BTW, some blood in the stool is normal- there’s a limit which, if exceeded, calls for a colonoscopy to be done. Blood in the stool is (usually?) microscopic. The Fecal Occult Blood Test (recommended annually) detects that.

Have fun!

If your going to get it done, I recommend you have a bum gun in the vicinity. Good for when that clean out solution makes you piss out your ass.  Forego the resultant wiping which can cause some tenderness around the starfish.

My wife was such a difficult patient at her first and only colonoscopy, that she has been banned for life - relegated to stool samples.

I think the colonoscopy is more effective but it isn't done annually  I hated the taste and cost was not a consideration as all tests are part of my health insurance plan.

The Aussie government have in place a pretty good bowel cancer screening program.

It applies to men from age 55, followed up at 5yrs initially then 3 yrs etc as you get older.

No charge at all.

They just send you a kit, instructions and a postage paid reply container for return of the sample which is very small.

A good program.

I have had countless colonoscopies and yes, have had one at Bangkok Pattaya.
I went in with symptoms from my condition , Ulcerative Colitus, but had no insurance to cover it as it was an existing condition.
I was told it was going to be something like 50,000 with inpatient care so I said no thanks and went to walk out. The receptionist called the consultant and I heard her say in Thai “don’t let this patient home, he’s really ill”
They then managed to get me on a special offer of 10,000฿ so I took that.
Procedure was same experience as hospital in UK. No complaints from me on the service.
The procedure itself is nothing to worry about, you get drowsy because they give you a sedative. The worst part is the prep which involves clearing the colon.
Nothing to worry about. PM me if you want any more info.

See you at Le Pub, soi Diamond.

Hi All,

          Well, the number of posts on this thread are starting to compete with, e.g., The 6!

I am surprised. Now, to the points:

I thought colorectal cancer was a slow-growing and therefore easily dealt with issue. *But* the symptoms may not be apparent until it’s at an advanced stage.

A friend first noticed symptoms 2 months ago. His cancer’s spread to 5 different places.

I don’t think I notice any symptoms, just my age, and its been 7+ years since I had my last one, when 2 small polyps were removed. 

Odd business about the pricing- an email from BPH, 11/6/18 said, 

“Estimated costs may include the following:

OPD consultation and hospital service charge: about 1,000-1,500 baht

Colonoscopy:  17,500 baht (package price)

Excluding: cost of pathology and medication

Pathology test: about 15,000-20,000 baht per polyp

If surgery/polypectomy is required: the cost is about 15,000 baht

However, for a proper treatment plan and accurate assessment of cost, we strongly suggest you to have an initial consultation with our specialist at the GI and Liver Center. It is open daily from 8am-5pm.”

_______________________

If I had any questions at this point, they would be the ones I should direct to the specialist. 

When I had my colonoscopy 7 years back, I had to take 2 pills (laxatives), and knock back 2 liters of water. I did that in my room. No big deal. Then they knocked me out at BPH. 

I posted this to get as much info as possible, as I find the doctors at BPH aren’t as forthcoming as I think they should be, so I want to be ready to hit them with the questions they *should* know the answers to.

 I *did* like the attitude of the doctor who I initially consulted with, same guy who did the colonoscopy.

Thanks again, everyone!

Preparation is the most important of the procedure. I had colonoscopy last year. 

No need to be afraid of. 2 days of colonoscopy diet+1 day no food.

The night before procedure i took oral laxative (Fleet phospo soda). I drank with pineapple juice. it is not bad but it is like you add really much salt to a juice.

The morning of the procedure *like few hours before* i used fleet enema. They told me it is the hard part but it was very easy to handle actually.

Procedure was fairly easy, they gave me sedative. Nothing felt after that. No diarrhea  or etc, actually i drove back to my home after the procedure. 

At the end i was diagnosed with IBD :(

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.

      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
