Im AFRAID of neeedles so badly.. would you honestly say thats the last thing to worry about? I mean.. they took 2 bottles of blood? Im iron defficent.. meaning when i lose blood i get really dizzy and feel like to pass out. So did it not hurt at all? If its 2 bottles that must be the needle is inside you for a while eh??? UGHH i wanna throw up already just thinking about it.
How much did you pay ot stay in that apartment? Like how much is it per night??? i think i will feel safe and comfortable this way since im a girl staying on my own. Is it owned by the hospital since its connected?
Was there refrigator in that place u stayed so u can keep your cold compress in it?
For me it did not hurt at all. The nurse used cotton to apply some solution on my mid arm. After that she told me she is going to poke liao. She gave me advance warning she is going to poke the needle. It was not painful and she only took 2 small test tube of my blood. The whole process was very fast and quick.
When you book the Kangning Service Apartment, you must inform them that you are Dr Kao patient and are seeing him for consultation/surgery. They will give you a special rate of NT$2000 per night. They have everything you needed (studied room, living room, balcony, bedroom,warerobe room, toilet, washing machine, fridge, kettle, kitchen etc). It is like a condominium and I am really very impressed with it. In addition, breakfast is included. It will be safe because they have security guard and also staff at the lobby/reception 24 hrs. I learnt that the apartment and the hospital belong to the same boss. You will find it very convenient to stay in the apartment and have the surgery performed at Kangning. Even if you need to go for review at Tri-Service Hospital (example like me, I went for review at Kangning but Dr Kao told me he cant remove the stitches for me yet and I have to go bk a couple of days later to remove it but it will be done at Tri Service Hospital), it is still convenient. If u take a cab, it's abt 5-8 mins & cost NT$100. If you travel by bus (Bus No 284), it will take abt 15-20 mins. Hope this info will be useful to you.
