Oh my, a couple of year wait, how can that be ? I would check into the need for surgery sooner. As I am not familiar with how things work in Canada but a 2 year wait seems extreme.
I have read statistics that there is wait of 62 weeks for a hip replacement, 62 weeks for general surgery, 30 weeks for MRI scans and 54 weeks for knee replacement surgery. These stats were for Alberta and Calgary from 2004 but it appears they have not improved but lengthened in waiting time.
It seems health care is a major concern for many countries.
Take care and let us know how you are doing.
