Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Hi - best wishes for your forthcoming surgery.
I have recently been given quotes for surgery by Dr de Smet and he suggested a hotel on the quote.  There was one hospital for the new surgery and another hospital for the revision surgery.
When is your surgery - I will be interested to hear how things progress, as I have to make some difficult decisions shortly.  I am anxious about having surgery abroad (I live in the UK) in case something does not go to plan and I need to return to Belgium or the USA.

 Hello again.
I have just checked my information and Koen suggests the Grand Hotel Reylof for the first surgery - a 7 day stay after leaving the hospital.
The Holiday Inn Express Hotel Akkerhage Ghent for the revision surgery with a 9 day stay after leaving hospital.  This is cheaper than the first hotel.
As your surgery is bi-lateral, his quote should advise you which hotel he requires you to stay and for how long. 
Apparently the rates at these hotels are discounted for Dr De Smet's patients.
How have you got along with the language barrier?  Dr De Smet has good English but not perfect and I am concerned that important information could be lost when translating.  Are you travelling from the US?
Look forward to hearing more regarding your adventure.
Regards
