On arrival we checked into a hotel and the hospital organised accommodation not far from the hospital. The doctors were very thorough with their tests and they started treatment 2 weeks into our arrival at the hospital which for us was a long wait as I was deteriorating but we understand. The only thing I can advice to take note of is that when you have to go somewhere else for tests and if these tests were included in your treatment package, let them know otherwise you will be double charged and always have extra cash with you because other things might crop up. The doctors were nice and made sure my family was kept up do date with what was happening.
