This is my first time travelling to Japan, Osaka and Kyoto are highly recommended by my friends because all the places are not too far away. But to covered all places 8 days are not really enough.
Before I travel , 1st of all I need to contact a hospital to book my dialysis. I find difficulties in finding a hospital in Osaka, I have sent english email and google translated email to their website but for 4 months still haven’t received any reply. This make me wanna give up but luckily I remember I can ask my cousin help who working in Osaka but back to Malaysia for good.
I sent him the email In English then he help me translate to Japanese in their website Enquiry form. Wow! the reply come in the next day!
To secure a place for dialysis you need to email them:-
1. Doctor Letter
2. Medical Report
-Latest blood test
-everything related to your dialysis treatment (machine,heparin,needle,pump speed)
*your doctor will know what to write
We take a midnight flight by Airasia on Wed midnight and reached there in the morning on Thur. I have calculated Thur to Thur are ideal to save money on dialysis treatment. cos every 2 days interval still ok to control my fluid intake.
My dialysis days are as follow:-
Wed-dialysis at home
Fri-dialysis at home
If you noticed this is Airasia Flatbed, due to Osaka flight is midnight it’s recommended to buy Flatbed so you can have a very fresh morning to start your journey.
