Re: Long term cruising w/medical condition

Thanks Mauritz! I agree I would need to be something like that. I was wondering if anyone had any experience going to other countries and the difficulty in getting medication on-sight or delivered. Especially medication that is considered "specialty drug". I don't know if they are also considered specialty with the same cost as the US should I have to cover the cost because insurance won't out of the country (more research TBD).
Hoping they come up with cheaper pill form before we eventually leave the states!

Knows all and sees all...ONLY a dullah!
I had an epidural...actually a spinal. My care was FANTASTIC. I would never day it was sub-standard. My physician was Cuban, OB trained, went to U of Miami. She was phenomenal. And the delivery was physician centered and so accessible. Would have a baby there again in a heartbeat. When fetal distress was recognized, I went straight to surgery. It was super high quality.

Sailing with Mongojo...currently a boat repair blog...hopefully someday a sailing blog!
