I realize that Mark. I will research until I can’t anymore. I seek medical opinions from everyone I see and have an appt with. I do in-depth research. I ask questions. A little of your knowledge should be common sense to. Too many ppl now a days are lacking that!
Please do not take my comment as a slight at you. I have a nephew that was just diagnosed with Leukemia and his doctor told him to not google his disease. He said that all the internet experts are idiots! He also took the time to answer all his questions.I realize that Mark. I will research until I can’t anymore.

That's good news. I think someone earlier mentioned "You got this", turns out they were right. Hoping the news keeps getting better.Things are getting somewhat easier especially with a routine and a schedule. Not so demanding because hubby can do things for himself now that he is starting to feel better.
I would agree but there’s nothing you can really do. The health care system is really overwhelmed.All the best to you and your husbands recovery.
The thing that irritates me is the fact he had to wait 2 years in order to see the orthopaedic surgeon. A shameful, unacceptable and all too common scenario for many in this country.
Had cervical spine surgery in 1996,... 2 month wait time.how far back to you have to go to get to the time when the system wasn't overwhelmed?
when i was up there, toronto east general had people in the hallways because they didn't have rooms for them. that was like, 2008 i think. wait times to see a doctor for follow up care for my surgery routinely took 4-6 hours.
It’s not just healthcare, that’s where the entire country is at right now.… putting people in charge of your healthcare that can't properly manage the post office invites problems
F'n criminal behaviour by the bastards,... I wonder when it was that the 'Hippocratic Oath' went out of style for some of the medical community. There appears to be a presence of hypocrisy surrounding the Hippocratic Oath in certain facets of our current healthcare system.It’s not just healthcare, that’s where the entire country is at right now.
A couple of weeks ago I went to the ER for the same thing that nearly killed me about three years ago. It was an entirely different game. This time they didn’t admit me and just said “we don’t worry too much about blood clots until it gets into your lungs or heart.” Of course by that time you’re pretty much dead. Anyway, the big time free healthcare up here ain’t what it used to be. Could also be that after a certain age they figure you are going to get expensive for health care and if you died quietly at home it would be better from an economic point of view.
Good point,... but in my opinion the doctors still share some of the blame for not standing up against the bureaucrats and for the best interests of Canadian patients. I believe it's time for an option of private healthcare in this country.I don't think it's doctors so much as bureaucracies telling them what can/can't be done.
