Recommended Posts

Need assistance with where to go that I can trust. Also prices if available.

 

I will need to get my blood checked 2-3 times per week.

 

I just had Knee surgery, June 1st and I was told I had blood clots in my lungs after the surgery.

 

This is second time I have had trouble with clots. When I had my first knee Done in 2001 I had blood clots in my leg.

 

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Should you be flying with blood clots?

If you have/had blood clots in your lungs i.e. Pulmonary Embolism, then I'm assuming your on Warfarin so you will need your INR checked regularly so you dont bleed out. This is normally done on a weekly basis, but it does vary on personal circumstances. Something to keep in mind is that if you intent to drink heavily (more than 3 standard drinks a day) this will interfere with the medication. I would advise you to talk with your doctor about this before you leave.

 

Also if you plan on taking Viagra or something similar I would also talk to your doctor about this while taking warfarin.

 

On where to go I would take SlickMonkey's advice and go to the Hospital

Is the clot in the lower leg? Are you injecting warfarin into the stomach daily?

Doc's aren't really worried about blood clots in the lower leg (below the knee) as these rarely embolise. clots above the knee and especially in the pelvis are the ones to be worried about. also he is most likely on warfarin tablets like coumadin.

Exactly, thats why i asked if they were in the lower leg, as my mum is just having the same problem. Luckily for her its in the lower leg, she mistook them as cramps to start with. She will have to inject herself forever now.

PIH is ok, but the doctors in the emergency room at least can be hit or miss.

 

If money isn't such a big deal, I would go to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital. But, you may just find a lab clinic that does good work and cut out the middle man.

Are you sure she's on warfarin? Most commonly it is prescribed as a tablet for outpatient situations. if not get her to ask the doc for the tablet instead, to avoid injections.

Thanks for the information .

I am on Warfarin.

I have been told by a number of doctors that It would be ok to fly as long as I walk around hourly.

I will be talking to lung specialist soon.

The blood clots are in my lungs.

I dont drink so that will not be a problem.

The trip is 3 months away.

I am still waiting for an email reply from Pattaya international hospital

 

But has anyone flown with blood clots? Or had a lab test done in pattaya.

Pattaya International is a bahtbus away, while Bangkok Pattaya can only be reached with a taxi.

 

I mean if cost is a consideration.

Thanks arnold Ziffell,

The price is not really the problem. Were you satisfied with the hospital? I s that hospital new and clean or should I just have it done in Bangkok?

So have you flown with blood clots. ?

seeing as the clots are already in your lungs, they aren't going to move. They wont get any bigger as your on warfarin. So you shouldn't have any worries flying. If you had Deep Vein thrombsis (DVT) then yes you should be concerned as flying would most likely make these larger and greater risk of embolising into your lungs again. But if you get up and walk around on the plane regularly, wear compression stockings, you shouldn't have any problems.

My dad spends 80% of his time in Pattaya and is on Warfarin, he goes for his blood tests at the "Dr Mongkol Clinic" Moo 12, Thappraya Rd. He rates them.

I'm surprised that the docs have allowed you to fly after having cots in your lung.

 

I say this I had 5 clots in my lungs back in 2005. I was on warfarin for 2 years and every day for a years i had to have blood test at the local hospital. For the 1st year i could not go abroad!

 

From my experience, my advice is make sure you are completely safe to travel and tell the lung specialist that you are going on a long haul flight.

 

I'm sure Patts International Hosp or Bangkok Patts have the necessary equipment to do a komidar blood tests, however for a correct answer you will need to speak with them direct.

 

be safe.

i have been to the bangkok pattaya hospital and i was amazed how knowledgable the staff were and how clean and nice the hospital was. I always thought the PIH was the cheaper option?

    • 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.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      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.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6
