Trisha Vautour, 13 November 2020

The doctor and all the other staff are very thorough and compassionate. I came here for an angiogram, and I was somewhat scared at the thought of getting it, but the doctor and staff were absolutely fantastic. I ended up having a stent, and the whole team made it bearable. Thank you to all the staff who really went over and above for me. I feel so lucky to have chosen Thonburi hospital for my treatment.

    What you need to know about Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment in Thailand

    Spinal Cord Tumor

    To determine a treatment plan for spinal cord tumor, your doctor must take into account your overall health, your age, the type of the tumor, and whether the tumor arises from the structures of the spine or has spread from other parts in your body. The main aim of spinal cord tumor treatment is to eliminate the tumor completely. The treatment options are surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. 

    What does a Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment Procedure Involve?

    Surgery is usually recommended for tumors that can be removed with an acceptable risk of nerve injury or spinal cord damage. The procedure is performed under general anesthetic and your surgeon will try to remove as much of the tumor as possible. Sometimes, radiation therapy or chemotherapy is used with or instead of surgery if the tumor is located in areas that cannot be operated on or the tumor is cancerous. High powered energy beams are used to kill cancer cells in radiation therapy, while drugs are used to destroy or stop cancer cells from growing in chemotherapy.  

    How Long Should I Stay in Thailand for a Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment Procedure?

    You may need to stay in the hospital for about 8 days after the surgery, but you should aim to stay in Thailand for at least 14 more days. If you undergo therapy, your length of stay is determined by the number of cycles needed for your case.

    What's the Recovery Time for Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment Procedures in Thailand?

    Recovery from spinal cord tumor treatments may take weeks or months, but you should be able to return to work within 6 to 8 weeks. With therapy, you should be able to return to most of your activities within 1-2 days or when you do not experience any symptoms that interfere with your ability to work.

    What sort of Aftercare is Required for Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment Procedures in Thailand?

    Your doctor will give you a set of instructions that you need to follow, which may include diet, restrictions, and exercises. It is really important to eat a healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains as well as getting enough sleep. Make sure you schedule follow-up checkups either with your local doctor or your doctor back home so they can monitor your condition.

    What's the Success Rate of Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment Procedures in Thailand?

    Spinal cord tumor treatment is effective, successful, and safe. However, the success rate depends on how early the treatment is performed. It is important to get informed about the side effects and risks, which include infection, bleeding, nerve damage, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and hair loss.

    Are there Alternatives to Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment Procedures in Thailand?

    If you have small tumors that are not growing or pressing on nearby tissues, your doctor may recommend careful watching by getting periodic MRI or CT scans to monitor your tumor. Another alternative is acupuncture, but this procedure is only used to relieve symptoms instead of curing cancer.

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    Spinal cord tumors can be dangerous, cancerous, cause uncomfortable symptoms, and life-threatening. After treatments, you should not feel the symptoms you experienced before and your life may be prolonged. Treatments may even put you in remission, meaning there are no cancer cells detected in your body anymore.
