Suporn girls?
« on: September 19, 2018, 08:23:08 am »
My parents and I are currently discussing our options for my SRS which is booked in January with Suporn. The flight is fortunately rather short at 7 hours, that's not the part I'm concerned about being alone for. It's waking up from anesthesia and the days following when I can't do much for myself.

Has anyone else gone to Suporn for SRS completely alone? Is it okay - are the nurse staff attentive enough that it won't matter?

Will someone assist me carrying my suitcase wherever I need to go etc?

Let me know of your experiences please. If you went accompanied, was it necessary? If not, do you regret it?

I don't want to put my parents through a trip to Thailand unnecessarily (especially a 4 week stay) and it does say on Suporn's info that going alone is perfectly fine.

Edit: Another question about the internet in the hotel, I'm assuming it wouldn't be fast enough to play any videogames on my laptop while I'm healing. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks Anon. I'm so nervous for my surgery and the recovery process. :(

Does anyone know if it's okay to miss a dilation in the 4th month of recovery? I need to fly long haul so I will only be able to dilate once (instead of twice) on each travel day.

Is it better to have a stop over and stay somewhere overnight so I don't miss any dilations?

My case - I fly Long haul flights occasionally. So I generally miss a session or 2. Tried to make up for it by dilating longer during the next session.

I'd guess the tricky bit In month 4 is that you're in the middle of the difficult part. When you go home from Thailand you're probably not at that point yet.

That's my concern.

Two weeks after surgery I missed a couple of dilations. I needed to take a bus to reach the airport and my  flight was over 2 hours so by the time I finally got home I was pretty wasted. It didn't cause any lasting damage but as soon as I could I returned to regular dilation.
