Re: Prices for Oxy and other meds + surgery

A friend from PP had chronic back pain to the point he could hardly walk - so he went and priced the operation in Malaysia, Bangkok and PP and got horrific quotes. He researched India (Bangalore from memory) and got some way better prices so he went. Visited several hospitals that he was impressed ...

Load "telegram" and message them that way
The only hospitals or pharmacies I can find that promote a Telegram option are Royal Phnom Penh Hospital and Sunrise Japan Hospital.

I'll make some calls next week.

Happy new year!

Re: Prices for Oxy and other meds + surgery

How much oxy are you on per day? Unless you're on a very high dose, Dihydrocodeine should be fine. I used to take oxy daily and could switch to Dihydrocodeine with no problems. 160mg, so it'll be about 240mg of MS Contin (Morphine) I can probably get by with a little less, but I need to make sure I...

Re: Prices for Oxy and other meds + surgery

Its difficult but possible to find oxycodone in Cambodia, but its STUPID expensive, approximately $1/mg, i.e. $40/40mg. You're much better off buying morphine (oral/IV is available), dihydrocodeine, tramadol or diacetylmorphine which are all dirt cheap in Cambo and will substitute fine for oxycodon...

Re: Prices for Oxy and other meds + surgery

3 facts 1. You have been misinformed about the current situation re cannabis medicine in Australia. 2. Forget(!!) about Oxy in Cambodia. 3. These links below will lead you to simple hassle free access to cannabis medicines - IF that is your choice. Specialist pain clinics are also an option - maybe...

Re: Prices for Oxy and other meds + surgery

why would u be nervous> Drug laws. I'm not that worried, but it's something that'll always be in the back of my mind. Korean and Japanese police are very, very soft unless you do something really stupid, but I don't get the same lax feeling about Thai police. Korean and Japanese police hate dealing...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hia. I'll be there or nearby in Jan '22. Providing other things proceed as suggested, it'll be a shorter stay than I'd like. That said, I'm really looking forward to seeing the place, and going for beers with anyone interested. I'm certain that finding someone with whom to drink beer will be a dilem...

Re: Prices for Oxy and other meds + surgery

In Cambodia you can get loads of prescription medication over the counter, but for some reason certain meds are very hard to obtain. Guess what... OXY is one of them. I figured. Sourcing it illegally isn't what I'm all about, no script is just one hassle out of the way. If I need to dick around get...

Royal Phnom Penh hospital (member of the Bangkok hospital group) charges about double what the Bangkok hospital (also member of the Bangkok hospital group) charges.
Ah, I see.

Thanks for clarifying.
