If anyone has the pricing for stryde in Korean / English / Japanese / Chinese, (it should all be different) from Lee. Do share please.

Maybe you should do the opposite, 6cm in the femur and 4cm in the tibia. The less the better imo when it comes to tibia. Very best of luck anyway.

actually from experience of my roomate. He said it is harder to do pt when you go longer on femur. Because of thick muscles around the thigh. And my physical therapist said that alot of his patience achieved more than their goal on tibia, like from 5 to 6 or even more. Finger crossed! Hope that is the case for me.

Today 08/21 is my fourth day. I have been having mood swings. I have been having fever on and off also. So i think mental support is very important and keep thinking positive. Everyday past you are getting better. Dr Lee whole team is amazing such nurses, caretaker, especially Hailey. If you are an international patient, you most like work with her. She has been helping me a lot.
Onething to take note, most of the nurses don’t speak english or very little. Hailey will help you but make sure you can basically communicate with them through translation app.  :)[/img]

Did my first pt session.
First xray
Everything is fine.
The physical therapist said my flexibility is above average which make me feel confident and move my legs bit more.
When i get back to my room i hah pain on my left knee really bad to the point that i dont feel my left leg anymore. So i asked for some pain medication. It does not work much. I keep change my leg position, eventually lucky me i found a position that does not hurt that bad and the pain calm down a bit.

1. What visa did u get and how did u get it?
2. How did u pay for this (bank transfer for example)
1. I can stay 3 month without visa cause i am US citizens but the hospital will help me to apply my medical visa after that cause i need more 3 months.
2. I paid 90% with my debit and credit cards. ( call ur bank if they charge internal transaction fee)
    Cause my bank don’T do international wire transfer so i did use transferwise to send some. Exchange rate is a it higher but you have to pay fee. So there is no difference if you pay with credit card.
    Keep in mind that you need to call your bank to increase your spending limit otherwise it is hard to pay a large amount of money.

i am not staying the hospital bro. Honestly it is not to bad to stay in  hospital there are con and pro especially if you stay in 4 person room.
Pro:
The 4 person room pretty big so will have enough space for yourself.
You have chance to make friends with other patients and learn from their experience
Bathroom is big ( My bathroom at my apartment is super tiny, so i always wait until i get to the hospital to take care my business)
The nurses will be there with you all the time
Con:
Pretty noisy especially when there are new patients, nurses come in very often.
Sliding door make a lot of noise
Hospital bed are really stiff.

Hey Cpl2012, hope you are doing well.How really good the facilities in the 4 person rooms at the hospital? Do you have TV? Minibar? Safe box? Inside the room?
Do you know what type of pain killer they are using each time?
