Advance preparation often results in the best price and thorough research often in the best quality. It is preferable to start at least three months in advance with travel bookings and planning of your treatment.
Decide on how long you want to stay. Take the duration of the medical procedure including immediate recovery into account.
Also take account of the rehabilitation program following the treatment. It may be dangerous to travel too soon after treatment. Refrain from strenuous activities after treatment.
Your recovery may take longer than expected. Take this into account when planning your trip, for example, by adding a few days or weeks immediately after the estimated rehabilitation period (and have nothing planned during this time). If possible, be flexible in scheduling your trip.
The priority during your medical trip mainly goes to treatment and rehabilitation. Plan your vacation around it.
Since Malaysia has a lovely tropical climate, you can have your treatment all year round. The fine weather often also speeds up recovery.
