I agree @SouthernGirl. We can think she will harm herself in going again there for her tummy tuck and leave herself to the mercy of this rat but sayings she deserves this rat is harsh nobody deserves this . I don't think her intentions where to mock the experiences the other ladies had with their rats. It's a fine line in communication here on the forum. I find the words which are used the last days quite disturbing I prefer to be kinder to other women no matter what her decision is it's up to her to deal with it. It's the main reason why I am lesser at the forum.
No matter how harsh she said her words in the long run she is not a child but a grown woman
She makes her own descions and the consequences will be hers alone, but she can not say harsh words to us, i went through hell and back and half the things that happened to me i still find it hard to speak off !!!
So we have remember she is a grown woman and she makes the choice to go or not, same as we all did , we all have to accept what happened and move on ,but i for one will not allow any one to make mockery off the situation we survived through we are not victims we are survivors!!!!!

I can see how it might rub ladies the wrong way kinda like curious G just saying.. it’s just life it’s our reactions sometimes we can’t hide them so they come out. I’m sure we don’t mean to hurt feelings like they don’t either

I agree, @Butterflies. I didn’t think she was attacking anyone. She only felt a bit defensive.

I'm sorry @Starlight I fail to see where she made a mockery of other women's experiences? In one of her posts she said she would take her daughter if and when she has a surgery. She never said she wants to go back to tunisia to get it done there. She said she changed her mind about it when she read all the comments how bad tunisian hospitals are. In all honesty which woman here at the forum can't say she didn't go back to her rat? Even if we had red flags? Warnings from family and friends the man you are in love with isn't a good man? Before I answer a post from a victim I read through her texts to see what she replied before in case I would answer her incorrect. She felled attacked and she lashed out. I would do the same......

Excellent advice SouthernGirl, I hope Jennie takes it on board.
He already shown his true colours, he is young and to him she’s not family, so he won’t look after her in that way or not at all.

Crazy idea to have that surgery away from home as there can be complications and easy to have infections.

Please Jennie think carefully about what you’re about to do.
I have been told by my rat that hospitals over there are dirty and there are a lot of mistakes. One of his friends died because they gave him the wrong medication. There is no malpractice lawsuits over there and doctors may not have had the same schooling as American or European counterparts. There is lots of negligence and shortage of supplies. Be careful.

I think some of them might say things like this to get their woman to pay for a private doctor or at least that is what they want you to believe! Mine took me for money for medical crap but the last time we talked I let him know that healthcare was free over there or next to nothing he didn’t ask for medical money after he knew I knew better thanks to tlr

Clinic is not free and believe my word as I know certainly the free healthcare is what @Chelio123 said…. I’m scared to use it myself. I can’t say the doctors are all bad, but the country is lacking technology and good environment…… makes me question even the medical education setting as well.

Hi @Aisha1 how are you today are you feeling better? I hope your heartburn is a little better and your pregnancy is going well I assume your bump is growing fast now. Xxx
Hi Aisha1 hope you’re ok, your baby seems to have a lot of hair!! Sign of constant morning sickness, you’ll be ok, it will soon pass.

Check that cold, have you been vaccinated? It’s ok for pregnant women to have the jab specially in ethnic majority. X

Again somewhere here it says healthcare is free or very cheap there because so many of us have given money for medical treatment! I’m not saying it’s great I really don’t care I don’t live there so like you I’d probably be traveling elsewhere! You lost my point or you are changing your mind once again! No I’m not hostile just trying just a little to understand why you say me thing and then contradict it????

@Sabrina im sorry I’m very confused. Healthcare is free…… clinics are not free. Clinics offer special care and more attentive care, they are not free. I’ve never said and will never say Free Tunisian healthcare is great, I’ve always went to clinics myself and my husband paid out of pocket, but again they are also not great. So when these guys ask women for money for healthcare expenses most likely it’s for clinics so they can have a little more comfort. I’ll be honest if you are so frustrated with me to the point that everything I post is responded by explanation points and accusations I’m a liar then please block me.

Wow they ask us because they go to the free place and pocket our many dinars we send . Just explain yourself alittle more don’t get so offended we came here because the rats take advantage of us we would like the truth that’s all, here in USA we have to pay the clinic or the hospital nothing cost a little or nothing is free how would we know the difference

I’m in USA now and since I’ve been here I’ve had nothing free. Urgent care is 85$ per visit and hospital surely is not free without insurance ( thankfully we have insurance), but we pay an ungodly amount for it….. and good luck finding a decent doctor without a referral or knowing someone working in the office to get you in for a visit. I think the healthcare system here is a nightmare. But the best way I can explain Tunisia is like this… regular hospital in USA is not typically state charity hospital, in Tunisia the free hospital is in the oldest government building setting, poorly kept, no air conditioning, rarely enough beds, other technologies is just unthinkable…. The clinics are like regular hospitals in USA and 9 times out of 10 are not even the same, lacking what they need to perform good healthcare. It’s not cheap for the clinic in Tunisia necessarily. Example if one person gets an X-ray they can pay around 400-800$ for the X-ray, doctor, clinic fee … and that is absolutely not cheap for average Tunisians. To have a baby in Tunisia is free at the hospital, but if you want a good doctor, room without 5 other women, pain medication…. It’s going to cost.

Usually what these rats ask for is a lie, I don’t think half of them are having these medical emergencies as they say. They ask for money for medical help because they know that is how to get the foreign woman to feel the most sympathy for them…. They are playing the game.

I was not being impolite I just wondered, when I speak it’s just that me speaking no sugar coating just matter of fact, I’m aware she is very helpful

I'm not going to rehash all the conversations your answers where rude so please choose what you texts or ask more carefully.
Yvonne xx
You dont have to rehash, it was very confusing because I though hc was free, this is why our rats use us for medical bills I know private drs cost there but we are not asked for money for private dr they scam us to go to hospital then we find out here it doesn’t cost. So whatever @Yvonne it’s just alittle confusing reading one thin and then something quite different . Peace out

I completely agree with @Butterflies. Paying more for a tummy tuck seems to be worth it. It’ll save you more down the road, and I’m not talking about money. It’ll avoid you a lot of headaches.

Knowing the caring souls rats are and from the things you said, I don’t believe he will take care of you and let you peacefully rest and recover from the surgery. He may expect you to cook and serve him, things like that. He won’t care about your needs. He won’t care that you’re tired and in discomfort and can’t move a lot for a few days. I can see him wearing you out with constant requests and demands for whatever, moodiness and fights when you say no. They don’t do nothing for free. He’ll be resentful that he has to play the nurse and will make you pay for it. Again not talking only about money.

Frankly, @Jennie, I don’t think it’s a wise decision to go there, see him again and expose yourself to more crap from him.
Think well because you may regret this trip. I’d stay home. Beside, if I was doing this procedure, or any kind of surgery, I’d want to be close to where my doctor is for follow ups or in case there were complications following the surgery in the future.
Please rethink having any surgery. I had a neck tuck in sousse and ended up in A &E in the UK. I did a lot of research on the surgeon and he came highly recommended by the Tunisians. Be safe and stay away.

@Miss mugg, I’m so sorry for the bad surgery experience in Tunisia. I hope you’re okay now. I’m not the person who is planning to have surgery in Tunisia. @Jennie is. Thank you for sharing your experience.

wherever i go have it i planned on staying 6 weeks but i’m just curious about this procedure so i checked in to it and that’s it. I don’t have anything set in stone.
If you do have it done in Tunisia join the Expat Facebook groups. Loads of Americans, Canadians, Europeans living here, try to make some friends before you come so you will have some support and some people to meet up with
