Hi Michele It's so good to hear that you finally have an appointment with a surgeon. When is your appointment? I sure hope that your surgery won't be too far off if that's what the surgeon decides is needed. I also hope you can get your pain down to a tolerable level. Take care.

love and hugs

Hi~

Good new that you finally get to see the surgeon. I've heard that waiting for non-life threatening surgery in Canada can be long but I would certainly hope that they can do give you something for better pain control in the mean time. If you can get some better pain control then you wouldn't have to consider using your saving for something you've actually already paid for through taxes.

I'll say a special prayer for you tonight that this doctor will be able to relieve some of your suffering and get to the surgery very quickly.

Warm hugs,
Chutz
