Everyone as a matter of course gets a post-op prescription.There's a pharmacy right behind the hotel. European Health card holders get a substantial discount but don't know about Private/ Canadian schemes perhaps one of the Canadian post operatives can chime in here.annie66 wrote:Hello,
I am curious to know if medication is required after the procedure, and if so which medication is it. Do you need health insurance coming from Canada to get meds or do we pay cash
Any help would be appreciated as my boyfriend heads to Poland May 26-27.
Prescription is for
6 daily injections of Fraxiparine (Nadroparinum calclium)
Self injected into sub cutaneous belly flab.
6 weeks of each
and small dose aspirin for life.
Perhaps if you google these names and constituents you may find the Canadian equivalents and see if you get local prescriptions more favourably.
I am not sure about Aspirin for life and will take this up with Dr Gilhooly at next visit to Essential Health clinic in Glasgow. He is a firm advocate of Omega 3 which thins the blood anyway so aspirin might be gilding the lily.
