My MRI results indicate a 1 inch long tear in my shoulder's cartridge, complicated by the growth of a cyst.

I have an appointment with a surgeon in march. Yay. by the time i get my shoulder fixed it will be at least 1 or 2 years from date of injury.

At least we have lots of nurses now who get paid the 3rd highest in Canada. Now we just need some doctors in ER's

DeanK, JTF, GOM,Pavolo, lets get together for free beer (my treat), at the Viscount Gort (close to my house)- You arrange the day and time, and we'll discuss global warming, the mayor, the NDP, and 3 other agreed on in advance subjects!

Saturday or Sunday is best for me, so I can take a break because I do not work anywhere, and I need a break from doing nothing!

GothChic included, and who else for free beer??

There may be an easier place to meet- the approach to the Viscount Gort requires a U-Turn off Portage avenue, and that WOULD PROBABLY get Goth-Chic stuck there!
Any other suggestions? There is a sports bar between St. James Street and route 90, that I was in awhile back, anyone know the name? Off the street that runs into Polo Park.

Well the pain clinic sent me 20 pages to fill out before they make an appointment to see me.
I need your help- they ask what do I expect, and I need to know if I should fill in no pain relief , or some pain relief, or complete pain relief! If I expect complete pain relief, maybe they won't have me in, because I would be disappointed!
Anyone know?

So I phoned them today and asked when my appointment is going to be, and I have a phone message that I have no appointment scheduled as yet as there is no appointment scheduled as yet!
Has anyone ever been to the pain clinic?

So what happened to the OPs shoulder? Did the MRI save him from death, or did the pain just go away on itself as it usually does with minor injuries?

I asked the lady, via fax, at the pain clinic who I should be suing for too long a waiting time, she did not answer, lol, but I also sent an e-mail to the legal division at the Regional health Authority, and she answered me, after asking some questions. I am supposedly going to get in to the Pain Clinic not in March, not in April, so that is pretty exciting news knowing that I am not getting in those months! I found out that they are going to be considering putting in an electrical device to my spine, so that when I have pain, I can push a button and I will get the feeling as if I was smoking a cigar and drinking 5 star! I requested Crown Royal, but that is an upgrade!

anyone else catch the news clip about the former NDP MLA who is suing the government because his doctor never ordered a colonoscopy for him.. and now he has a less then 2 years to live?

He is suing the goverment to make it so that any diagnostic procedure a patient wants.. they can get, without doctor approval.

Didn't catch that. But it is sweet poetic justice. As awful as that sounds.

Seems semi-reasonable. Manage it on a case-by-case basis to avoid waste is all.

yeah I cant find a link and cant remember the guys name.. so NDP MLA sue Manitoba... brings up way way too many links to search through

But what we are doing know is a case by case basis. Your doctor looks at your symptoms are orders test based on that. What the dude is suggesting is that the patient can just request whatever test he/she wants and the government must provide. Seems to me costs will freakin skyrocket.

It would be nice to find out what really happened. I cannot imagine a Doctor not ordering a colonyscopicatilaptitiosly for someone over 50 years old when they go in for their yearly phizikal! Unless the Doctor is working outside of Winnipeg, and then has not heard of the procedure!

So 5 months later, my Neuro Surgeon's requests (2) for me to have a standing MRI outside of the Province, has been turned down.
The good news is my MRI in Winnipeg has been set for March 4th! I am going to reply and ask them if there is a hallway that I can wait in!
Fuking health care - It is wait care!
