Lovely day cycling yesterday, but the roads are a bit wet, and accidents do happen, and a day later, nope, something’s weird with my upper left side; I suspect it’s a bruised or fractured rib, but I’d like to get a professional opinion beyond Doctor Google or Doctor Forumosa.
My question: where should I go? I’m in Danshui, so my default assumption is Mackay Hospital (beside Zhuwei MRT Station). But are there smaller clinics that also can handle this kind of thing? @the_bear, you’ve talked about X-ray clinics - would that be a better place to start? There’s also a physio place down the road, and I’ve gone there for knee injuries in the past - but I suspect that’s a place I’ll wind up, rather than start.
So main question, where should I go: big hospital, or smaller nearby clinics? Secondary question, what are key words I should look for online if I try to book a time, rather than just show up and presumably wind up at the end of a very long queue? (Very limited Chinese, but if I know what I’m looking for I can usually muddle by with help from Google Translate.)
Thanks in advance!
(Questions about how the hell to get a good night’s sleep without waking up in pain every time I roll over will come later.)
