    Gee whiz I do love this thread. After reading up lastnight I'm now going to ask about the one off injection rather than the Synarel. Thanks for the idea ladies!

    Meanwhile, DH asked whether we need vaccinations for SA. I think I looked into this months ago and concluded that we didn't but now I'm second guessing myself. Can anyone tell me?

    19 days to go until we fly out!

    - from memory it was just to be up to date on standard vaccinations like :tetanus, pertussis, diphtheria, measles,mumps & rubella
    And then the typical travel vaccinations of Hep A
    Hep B
    Typhoid
    My GP also recommended the flu vaccine but I didn't do this as stock hasn't been released yet (too early in the season) and was fine. (Although I did worry a little as I was doing an immune protocol which reduces immune responses)

    Williteverhappen - yay for flying out in 19 days!!! As for vax, in addition to Blinky's list we were told we required yellow fever, which is not the case. You will however need it if you are planning on travelling to other parts of Africa and be required to provide proof of vaccination (on a yellow fever card) to re-enter Australia.

    TB is problematic in Sth Africa, you may have already been vaccinated for it though when you were younger. If so you may have a scar on your left upper arm.

    I vaguely recall someone noting hey had organised a credit card without international fees.

    Can you please advise as to which institution this was with.

    There is a company called 28 degrees, has anyone heard of them?

    Thanks @laned we have put a call into our GP to check what we have been covered for previously. Interested to hear about no fee credit card, hopefully someone will chime in soon.
    @Blinky76 we got our treatment plan straight after donor testing, fingers crossed all goes well with your donor and you get your plan straight way too

    @laned Citibank have a debit card like this. We used this all around SA with no fees. Just need to notify the bank of your travel plans (unlike us and the first time we went to use it overseas the card was stopped and we were trying to ring Australia in the middle of the night to re-activate it....not good when I'm trying to be stress free!)

    Laned - you might be best to ask what your current bank offers. I went to the local branch and asked re charges. They said that although the credit cards have a 3-4% charge on purchases, there are no charges to use our eftpos cards os. The woman I spoke to said she'd recommend using eftpos rather than credit or a travel card for only 2 weeks.
    Have you received your depot injection yet? I had to resend my script so wondering how long it will take to arrive.
