Go and have a great time!! My suggestion is to look into where you will be buying your meds. I'm concerned about counterfeit drugs. Maybe your current Dr. office can arrange for delivery to you?? Just a thought.
Don't forget about us. Let us know how you are doing and what it is like living there!
Hey guys and gals,
Thanks for your warm words! I am looking forward to this. But nervous as heck so need to just go with the flow. I hope to go as healthy as possible, but lately I have been having tummy pain as mentioned previously. It isn't debilitating and there hasn't been any D ...just gas ya know. So I think I am just worrying over it too much because I am making a big change soon. A part of me doesn't want to over do it and go to my GI's who tell me I need to hold off on going to Korea....aghh. But I will keep monitoring my health and if things are looking towards a bad flare I will get the aid I need.
Other than that I expect Koreas health system to be different from the West but Seoul actually has a lot of hospitals and University hospitals which are up to date. In fact i found a speciality hospital just for intestinal disorders right in the neighboorhood that I am moving too. My Korean friend sent them an email in Korean asking if they can treat a foreigner with Crohn's and if they have the medicine I can take...all the answers were yes. So we will see!
Alllright I will keep you all posted.
I have a blog:
