  1. I use a CPAP and it from time-to-time needs replacement parts. Can anyone kindly recommend a store in lakeside or Guadalajara that carries CPAPs or parts? Thanks in advance for your help.
  2. I am in search of an extremely qualified foot surgeon. I recently had my left foot operated on by a doctor who came highly recommended from a local clinic. The surgery turned out terribly; my metatarsal and great toe do not touch the ground anymore so my balance is severely compromised. Since he came so highly recommended, I am hesitant to put myself in the care of another orthopedic surgeon. I would like to hear from people who have successfully had foot surgery from a competent physician. 1. Does anyone know of Dr. Agustin Toscano Barragán He works out of Hospital Rossete. Avenida Circunvalación Division del Norte 487, Monumental, 4320 Guadalajara Dr. Daniel Sanchez DPM (works at the same clinic at Barragan) 2. Total Feet Podologos - Av. Puerto Melaque 1233, Santa Mariía, 44350 Guadalajara 3. Any other surgeons ??? I would also appreciate being steered away from a surgeon who had a questionable reputation. Feel free to PM me. Sharon St. John-Mercik
  3. My husband and I are looking to move down hopefully some time around September/October time frame. I would like to come down before hand though and see a back specialist. I have 3 herniated discs that cause me tons of pain. I was hoping someone who has similar problems, could give me some advice about a good doctor in the area along with a contract number. We are looking forward to meeting and making new friends here ?
  4. I did not see a forum for health, but have seen a lot of requests here for pain management and wanted to share this link, given the age and health of a lot of our community here in God's Waiting Room. Spinal-Cord Implants to Numb Pain Emerge as Alternative to Pills
  5. This forum is for any question about Infectology and Epidemiology, also I Will post important news about Infectious Disieases in Guadalajara and Lake Chapala Area
  6. Does anyone know of a service lakeside that will respond to a pendant or wrist button? In the U.S. there is "Life Lock" where a single older person can wear something that allows him or her to seek immediate help if he cannot get to his phones, such as if he takes a fall, has a heart attack, or some other medical emergency, by pressing the button on the pendant or wrist. Is such a service available here?
  7. OK guys.... I just had my gallbladder removed and had it done through the Mexican Seguro Poplular system. If you have any questions I can answer about the process and paperwork etc., I will be happy to try and answer. Have a fabulous day.
  8. I have my Mexican address on file with most state and US government agencies (I didn't want jury duty etc). I have had no problem - I receive my Social Security. I currently receive Blue Shield health insurance as part of a retirement package but when I turn 65 next week I will be eligible for Medicare and things change. I have opted to sign-up with Medicare Part B and my current Blue Shield Health Insurance converts to a Medicare Part B supplemental insurance. Now I know that Medicare does not cover services outside the USA. I have separate health insurance coverage for Mexico. However, in calling my ex-employee, Blue Shield, Medicare and the Social Security Administration, no-one can give me a definitive answer to this question. If I have an address outside of the USA on file with SSA and I visit the USA, while INSIDE the USA can I take advantage of Medicare, i.e. will Medicare cover me for services performed in the USA by a doctor who accepts Medicare? I have called the above several times and often get conflicting answers. No-one can point me to any regulations that definitively answer this question. Having the SSA agent tell me "I think so" is not very comforting. Some have told me 'no' - with a Mexican address, Medicare will not cover you for anything inside or outside the US. Even the gentleman giving the emergency medical flights presentation lakeside in the coming weeks could not answer it - and you think the success of his company would depend on knowing the answer to this question. So, is anyone else in this situation? And has had experience with Medicare inside the USA? Is it worth keeping Medicare Part B? (as it is not free)
  9. I want to make an extensive invitation to the entire community of Chapala and Ajijic to join our evening tours of the Lake Chapala and enjoy riding your bike with a group of native people living in the region. The tours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays and we want to grow this group to promote sport and brotherhood of our members. Interested please comment!
