Problems with joints, lungs and liver.

Hello. I want to come to Nha Trang to relax and live for a while. I have problems with joints, lungs and liver. Could you please recommend clinics and give me guidance on prices?
Or does it make sence to go to Vietnam with these problems?

Maybe sort it out in your home country before coming here. The medical system in  the smaller cities is not too good.

In my country Health Care isn't mach better.

Ok, the one benefit is that Vietnam has warmer weather than your home country, this should be much better for your joints.

Yes, I hope so. And sea breeze will be better for my lungs than dirty dry air in my city.

If you can afford to, I would recommend South Korea. They have top notch medical facilities and speak English. I have a Korean friend where her, her daughter and husband go to Korea once a year to do all their physicals/bloodworks and anything else. They have crappy insurance in the US for emergencies only. I also hear Thailand have good medicals too but not from anyone I know.

South Korea is too expencive for me.

G’day mdanick,
Keep in mind that Nha Trang has direct flights to Bangkok @ $40+ .  1hr 40mins.   Also Kuala Lumpur is a short cheap flight & they both have excellent medical facilities.

An old Expat  80+ had a triple heart bypass at Cho Ray hospital in Saigon...only 40 min flight away & he’s still going well.

Nha Trang has several hospitals, one brand new .  One of them specialises in physiotherapy.   .

The airs good, provided your on the outskirts of town.  The city centre is a construction zone plus tourist buses spewing fumes .

What wrong with your liver.   If your a drinker,,,,,you’ll be in trouble.

  Dirt cheap booze , Expat dead beats to drink it with & a shot liver isn’t a recipe for success.

Good luck

Thank you for your reply. My liver doesn't like smoked products and pork anymore. Thats becouse of plenty of tablets. I don't  drink alcohol at all.
Frankly all of my problems are becouse of dirty air and extra weight. My left leg is shorter than the other so its hard for me to walk. And I had a trauma last winter after which I feel pain in my knee.

Jaysuz...

It’s a good thing you don’t drink......

If that left leg is shorter than the right.....you’d never get home.

You’d keep circling back to the bar.😆. They’ll be calling you boomerang.

I too have liver issues, mainly fatty liver, if you have liver scarring thats a different issue. I have been taking Milk Thistle and eating nuts like walnuts and almonds, it seems to have made a big difference. If you move to NT get a bicycle, adapt the pedal to suit your shorter leg and get your weight down. It will help, it wont cure it but it will help. Exercise is super important to assist in gaining reasonable health.

Well I hope to walk more and to find some herbal medicines in Vetnam.  I heared that there are some traditional medicine centers.

Bike riding is much better than walking and it burns more calories.

May be you're right.
By the way what about air pollution in Nha Trang? My astma doesn't like smoke.

Just stay away from coffee shops and restaurants frequented by locals, the men will light up anywhere and everywhere. The air is fine, not too much smoke.

Just my two cents worth: perceived difference in leg length could be caused by structural imbalance in the skeletal system. I mean the pelvis is tilted and the so the spine is crooked to compensate, et cetera.
A good massage therapist could correct the leg length difference simply with hands-on traction. If the cause of different lengths is more serious, or genetic  then not much can be done that way. The pain in the knee likewise could have to do with skeletal imbalance -causing pressure on nerves to send pain elsewhere - or it could be lingering effects of the trauma. In any case,  massage to parts of the spinal column to relax muscles could ease off the pressure on the nerves up there that cause the pain down in the knee.

Unfortunately massage can't help with my 12 cm leg difference. But helpful with spinal and ligament problems
