The missus mam god rest her soul chose the AEK after increasingly more frequent severe headaches n fainting spells ..miss diagnosed or a simple failure to spot the illness . sent home ,,,,,,,,later readmitted to Udon General where an exact and accurate diagnose was sort ,,in literaly 1 hour of being in the place ,,,,, suffice to say everyone involved is now very anti AEK and rightly so........
Fancy rooms n all the latest equipment dont mean buggar all if the docs/staff dont carry out their jobs in the corect manner , AEK is a business first ,, A hospital second and all thay are supposed to stand for third.
MR Mash... I cant say it better my self!
After I broke my neck for the second time, I have big problems with dizziness which can sometimes develop into migraine-like headaches that pretty quickly leads unconsciousness if I can not lie down and rest. Obviously influenced this state of heat and high humidity when I hit easier. One time a few years ago, I was in Old carfour to shop food. After about 5 minutes, I noticed that I started getting headaches on the left side of the skull. While my vision began to wane and I got "tunnel vision". I tried to take me to the cashier, a distance of about 50 meters. I started getting hard to focus and realized that unless I could quickly find a place to sit down and rest, I would pass out. My wife had gone to seek some piece of clothing, I called her mobile and then I remember nothing more.
I started waking up in an ambulance. I did not know exactly where I was and felt anxious and vulnerable. Turned around and saw my wife who had anxiety and fear in the eyes .... Then I passed out again and woke up in the intensive care unit at the large state hospital. There I stay for four days and during that time made many in my opinion, very professional efforts to come to terms with my injury. I got a bed in a big room with about 40 beds divided into two sections. There were no private rooms available and the doctor asked me if I wanted to be moved to a private hospital. I said: No thanks, I'm happy if I can stay here and he said that it goes well and you would try to help me in the best way. While I was in the hospital, I experienced many things that I otherwise would not have been able to if I had not been hospitalized. I got to meet the real Thailand and my fellow patients and their relatives took very good care of me. They gave me fruit and water, when I was feeling really bad at the beginning of the stay, put another human being in a chair wide wind my bed, a person I've never seen but still came close to me and it was a strange and warm experience. This while life-sustaining interventions were made for a dying person dying just a few feet away! Here I look into the real Thai heart and after this experience, I have become a better person and my understanding of the Thai culture has increased a lot and This could happen while life-sustaining interventions were made for a dying person dying just a few feet away!

Doctors found very quickly the reason for my trauma. They found a minor injury to the frontal lobe of the brain that also some way affects my short-term memory, concentration, etc.. In addition, the second skull fractures that affect hearing, balance That doctors in Sweden totaly missed. Care was exelent and when I got better brain specialist told me that all the highly qualified doctors were at the State Hospital and in addition work extra as consultants in private hospitals. This means that the best qualified healthcare can provide only at the State Hospital because that is where the best resources are available. One should not blindly look at the shell, but it's the inside that counts. From this moment i only visit state hospitals and i have an equal experience from the state hospital in Cha Am.
WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES ANOTHER OPENS!
These days life seems pretty good and I eagerly look forward to the continuation!
