Medical Advice

    Recommended Posts

    HOPE I CAN HELP SOMEONE FROM BEING AS DISAPPOINTED AS I AM FOLLOWING MY RECENT MEDICAL. MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS TOO HIGH AND I HAVE TO HAVE A CARDIOLOGY REVIEW AND STABILISE MY BLOOD PRESSURE BEFORE VISA CAN BE GRANTED, MORE EXPENSE AND TIME :sad:. MY ADVICE TO ANYONE AWAITING THEIR MEDICAL IS TO HAVE A CHECK UP WITH THEIR OWN GP WELL BEFORE SEEING THE PANEL DOCTOR. YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE HAS TO BE 150/90 OR LESS TO PASS. IF I HAD SEEN MY OWN GP AND COMMENCED TREATMENT I WOULD ALMOST BE READY TO BOOK FLIGHTS THE STRESS OF THE VISA PROCESS IS ENOUGH TO GIVE ANYONE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.

    My sympathies, you are so right, the whole process is enough to give anyone high blood pressure... good advice. We had our meds done yesterday, all ok but I was worried about it.

     

    Hope it all works out for you, Amelia

    hey

     

    I had a high blood pressure at my meds and needed a cardio report....only to be told i have white coat syndrome!!! the report is just to make sure that there is no underlying problems....!!

     

    they do cost a bit....but its worth it in the end!!

    I sympathise with you, when my hubby and daughter had to have their medicals, both of them had setbacks. Our daughter was considered small for her age, she was 6 months and I had to get a letter from the child health nurse saying although she was below 3rd percentile, she was following the growth curve adequately.

     

    My husband the night before went on a bit of an extended drinking session,nerves I suppose, felt really off the day after, the medical was at 4pm and was feeling worse. I was ready to throttle him. His urine test came back positive with evidence of infection and he had to have further blood tests. He was actually coming down with a nast cold and it was just his body excreting the byproducts of the infection. A week later he passed.

     

    My hubby is from Liverpool and daughter no 1( that one mentioned up there) was born in Fazakerley hospital.

    Fingers crossed for you all,

    Rachel

    Hi Sue My Boys Are Not That Keen To Go But We Know That It Is In Their Best Interest That We Give Them A Chance In Life That Many Others Do Not Have. I Wish I Had Made This Decision When My Boys Were Small Like Your Kids. We Started The Process In November 2007 After I Attended A Seminar Organised By The South Australian Government Held Here In Liverpool. Things Have Moved Very Quickly I Got A Recruitment Ageny And Have Simply Followed Their Advice...... I Am Now Registered To Work As A Nurse In Sa......they Organised Job Interview And I Have Got A Job In Flinders Private Hospital With Full Sponsorship .....visa Application In Case Officer Processing Visa......just Medicals Holding Us Up.

    Are You Having Any Trouble Selling Your House? We Have Only Had One Viewing So Far.

    hi

     

    just wondering if anyone can help, my oh has high blood pressure but is on medication to stabilize it, just applying for the vetassess now but we are a bit concerned that when we get to the medicals stage it will be a problem and it will affect our application. Any info would be great.

     

    thanks

    CERI hope medicals went ok, sorry no advice on where to live nightlife etc, but my son is over there at the moment (26) and loving it. We cannot wait to get there. I imagine you are an a similar visa 457 to me and mine, so how will you get your children over as they will not count as dependants?

    How is housr selling going, we are starting to get worried as I have agreed to start work in July so hubby will have to stay if no sale:realmad::realmad::realmad::realmad: Also nice to see your hubby over 50 like mine, he was begining to think he was the oldest on rhis site
