Like a breath of fresh air, going to the Guatemala “Imessa” Hospital in the city of Solola. Clean, efficient, and free coffee, the hospital was professional. I paid 150 Quetzales, around 20 USD for 2 digital views of each break. 150 for elbow, and 150 for tibia, so 300 total. Then another 150 for the consultation from orthopedic doctor Patricia Dominguez, she spoke simple English which was 10 times better than any of the doctors in Sosua, Cabarete Medical Center, Dominican Republic in Sosua. , Doctor Arias was good, but horrible for English. I speak great Spanish, but medical terms. So, CMC at Sosua wanted 350-400 for the same service, while Imessa Solola, Hospital, where paid 450 Quetzales or 60 USD. Thank you Guatemala, Andy Lee Graham

Hey Andy, did you also talk to the doc about removing the pin in your elbow? Is it just one that is supposed to come out or more?
Yes, we talked for a long time. She seems to want me to concentrate on getting back all the range of motion first. The pin is poking through the end of my elbow, and hurts. Doctor Arias in the Dominican Republic is a . good guy, maybe he will talk with Doctor Patricia Dominguez here in Guatemala on WhatApp, and explain the pins to her, she understands, but we need to get up to speed better. It was the first time for her, so she is new at the operation. In 4 weeks, after I push the hand to bend flat, arm to bend, we can talk again. She does not see the pin as a big deal, she said it would cost around 4000 Q to have them removed, but she was guessing. I think roughly 500 USD, I will talk to another orthopedic doctor, and get 2-5 more opinions. I like her, but this is not the USA, and basically, I no longer trust any doctor on the planet. She is smart, but they never seem to know the price of anything, and doctors seems to think pay me, pay me.
Check the pin removal out on youtube, I watched a couple when you 1st talked about it and saw a couple people doing it at home! Similar to your staple removals.
