Italian Language/use of - "va bene"
My question is about using the expressions “Come va?” or “Come va la salute?” to ask about a person’s health.
Can you please tell me if it is acceptable to answer - “va bene” to these questions.
For example – if someone asked me - “Come va?” (How are you) in reference to my health - would it be acceptable for me to answer “va bene” (OK)
When someone says “Come va?” or “Come va la salute?” to ask about a person’s health, it is acceptable to answer “Va bene, grazie!” to these questions.
Therefore, if for example someone asked you “Come va?” (How are you) in reference to your health, it would be acceptable for you to answer “Grazie, va bene”/"Va bene, grazie!" (OK) as well as “Sto bene, grazie!” (I’m fine, thank you).
Note that, generally speaking, we can also say “Va bene” as an informal expression used as a way of showing that we are going to take action or start something new as in “Va bene, andiamo pure!” (OK, let's go) or “Va bene, se sei pronto, possiamo andare” (OK then, if you're ready we'll start).
