Cost of hernia surgery in canada

Common Questions and Answers about Cost of hernia surgery in canada


Avatar n tn Weight loss will be the easiest way to alleviate the symptoms, as it will reduce the internal pressure, but the hernia (tear in the fascia) will remain, and symptoms could certainly recur, unless we have surgery. If any of you has surgery to repair the hernia, I highly recommend a patch. if they just sew it up it will usually recur.
Avatar n tn Went to Doc today in advance of my next scheduled visit just because I heard a horror story of a guy who had hernia surgery from the same hospital I went to. But he was getting sick and all a day after. I think I'm alright. Doc said that burning feeling is normal. I hope I don't have a future of testicular pain by the sound of some of these posts. mogulbasher.
Avatar n tn I'm surprised that they jumped right into surgery with a 5 cm cyst and some other (smaller?) cysts on the left side. 5 cm is kind of on the edge in terms of needing surgery. I don't see in your note how soon the surgery took place after they saw the cysts on US. So many women are told they have cysts and have to go back in 1-3 months to be scanned again. I agree, it never hurts to get a second opinion. In my case I had a 10 cm cyst (I'm menopausal too).
Avatar n tn We did an mri and discogram showing a level 5 tear in my disc. 24 hours after surgery symptoms of pain/numbness in hands gone. Refered pain in middleback and between shoulderblades much better but still there defainatly better than before. I have heard from doctors and many medical journals that a disk replacement will last 10 years. I am 30 so this was a big worry. However looking at the medical advacment in the past 50 years is amazing even in the last 10 years.
93210 tn?1287457826 After you give that an honest try then decide on if lap-band surgery is for you. The cost is an investment- like the cost of a new car BUT you have to honestly weigh your options. Also, I do not recommend L.A. Weight Loss because I only lost a total of 12 lbs on their program & a freind of mine only lost about 20lbs & BOTH of us gained it back as soon as we went off the program. It is also ULTRA expensevie to join as well as keep up.
Avatar n tn and stinging type pain in certain areas of my head ..I was flying from Scotland to Canada on Saturday and had the pain in my head all day ..when I arrived withing a half hour period the pain in my head had gone but my lymph glads had swollen all over the back of my head ..left hand side ..I went to the doc here who never really said anything except to frighten me as she said if they did not go away ..they would do blood work as it might be serious ..
Avatar n tn do you know what stds are associated to my symptoms? i have never heard of blood in the sperm and in the urine after ejaculation being related to an std.
Avatar f tn after being in and out of hospital, on and off State Disaility (still lived in L.A. at the time), final surgery in 1988 [the week of Christmas - my poor little girl wasn't sure WHAT was going on with Mommy, my initial [one month] hospital stay happened when she was only 11] any rate, with all my documentation, 3 years of 'medical struggle', and a quarter million in hospital bills...
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realiizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
Avatar n tn I was one of the thousands of women who took Benedictin in 1977 and 1980 for nausea and vomiting during both of my pregnancies. My oldest daughter has poly-cystic ovary disease and has suffered with endometriosis for approximately 15 years, She had been unsuccessful during all of these years to get pregnant but just this week we have gottnen the news that her first invitro treatment was successful and she is due to give birth in late August 2008 or early September.
Avatar n tn I've been searching online for over six months and this is the first time this came up in my search. In the past I have found nothing of any value to help me. It is so frustrating. If males were having this problem it would probably be resolved by now. Surely there is a medical professional who can take up our cause.
Avatar m tn - 25-50% of the time is loose, normal size - Sometimes light-weight sorta like it has an internal sponge cake texture or filling. Has a basic structure and shape, almost 'normal.' - Sometimes engorged with blood, very heavy, lead weight. No structure, plump, very dead-like. - Sometimes takes on a weird 'coke bottle' shape. Like a band is restricting around the middle, while full and plump near the glans.
280700 tn?1210287416 I read something that said 80% of women who take clomid will get pregnant while on it...but something like 50% of those will end in miscarriage. I don't think the clomid increases your risk of miscarriage, I just think it's whatever is going on with your body. I took prometrium for 7 days to start my period, and then I took the clomid days 5-9 of my cycle. As soon as my period stopped I BD every other day. I went for progesterone check on CD21.
Avatar n tn Mine was at 20mm and I was starting to show signs of paralysis when mine was discovered, so I was rushed to surgery. I only knew of the existance of Chiari for 3 weeks before my surgery, some people may be diagnosed and watched for years, even decades, before they need surgery. Type 2 and beyond are often noticable at birth. They often causes partial or complete paralysis below the spinal defect and generally have noticable malformed brains at least on an MRI.
Avatar f tn He is not familiar with the surgery as this syndrome is so rare but we are in the process of finding someone to help me. If anyone knows an ENT in NC that is capable of this surgical technique, I would be so grateful!
Avatar f tn I am from Canada and in a lot of ways our health care in the UK and here seems to be similar. In my case, the Chiari was missed or ignored by the radiologist and my NL (who I believe decided not to tell me as he liked the stress dx better). I went for 6 months rapidly progressing w/o a clue of what was wrong with me and no one told me until I finally went to see a NS. So VERY important!!! Do not rely on a NL to give you an accurate view on Chiari....get a specialist!!
Avatar n tn I shelled out over $850 in out-of-pocket expenses in April, for NOTHING. It will take a lot to get me back in a doctor's office. I pray you get better.
Avatar dr m tn The theory that these symptoms are caused by infection has long since been discarded, due to the lack of response to antibiotics in these patients and absence of acute infection when epididymal and vasal sections are removed during surgery and analyzed histologically (Selikowitz and Schned, 1985; Chen and Ball, 1991).
1408746 tn?1283678948 I think it should be a standard procedure when a woman comes in complaining of chronic pelvic pain.... I am attaching a picture of my surgery scar to correct my Nutcracker Syndrome and I would also like to state that although I just had my surgery, my pelvic pain has improved dramatically. I hope this helps someone!
428185 tn?1203745389 Also my own urologist had also taken patients for HIFUs in Toronto, Canada. My surgery took closer to 1-1/2 hours, not 3, apparently. My sense of time is usually much more accurate. And the part I wrote about sex is making my wife blush, so don't read it.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have just returned to Canada from a vacation in the country I was born (in Eastern Europe). I have spend two days in one of the best hospitals there, meeting 6-7 specialists and undergoing many additional test, trying to confirm the diagnosis of costochondritis or finding something else. I will not go into details, but very few people have been tested so extensively. The only test I have opted out was the diagnostic laparoscopy.
Avatar m tn None of them seem to relate to the closure of the windpipe and cant give me a straight answer when I ask them. Has anyone an answer or better still has anyone else had this problem.
519226 tn?1378994921 My mother is nasty, bitter, hateful, argumentive, unsupportive and the meanest person I know. She's always been this way, but it's getting worse as she gets older (now 68). You cannot talk to her nicely or try to explain your point without her snapping at the person and starting an argument. If you say to her "why are you arguing" she says, You are, not me. It's always the other person, never her. You are dammed if you talk to her, and dammed if you don't talk to her.
Avatar m tn Each has 3 angio suites and patients are in and out all day in all of them. They have never had a fatality yet or caused a stroke. I really wish there was some way I could relieve your fear, or even have the procedure for you because they really don't bother me. Just ensure you urinate before going in because the dye they inject seems to excite the bladder a bit. They will say "sharp scratch" and they inject the anaesthetic to the incision area.
Avatar f tn overload of cortosol due to stress, whether emotionally induced or sympathetic nervous system can not determine any more which is stress or not, overload of the adrenals, which in turn cause high anxiety. 2. Imbalance of harmones, which brings me to the ASI (Adrenal Stress Index Test) $200 or less but I am going for it because I know this I believe is a main souce of my anxiety...... Right now, I am taking a natural remedy at night at 7pm and the antivan at 9 pm.
544292 tn?1268886268 Severity of withdrawal can be estimated by considering that each 100 mg tramadol oral (hx daily use) will be roughly equivalent of 10 mg morphine (IV daily use) in severity of withdrawal symptoms. Differences are that standard opiate withdrawal seems to cause more physical illness (vomitting, diarhea, bone pain etc.) Tramadol withdrawall seems to cause significantly more anxiety and emotional distress.
108861 tn?1227249648 Hey Angie, we all dreamed of getaways without our kids when they were young, don't stop dreaming! I have lived in Texas and that is such a huge and varied state I think it merits a getaway dream or two! Kasie, my spiled brat Brother is in Hawaii as we speak, a cyber slap to him! And, of course, it does not cost him a cent as it is another radio station tour! I loved Hawaii but not sure I could live on an island even though my dream destination is also an island.

Avatar f tn Your symptoms do indicate you are probably grade 3 and it is very difficult to balance advanced POP with exercise (although I always recommend women continue exercise programs for maintenance whether they have surgery or not). I'll send you a PM of someplace you can check for a urogyn in Canada-some provinces have them, some don't.
535822 tn?1443980380 html In our state, we have Canadians come here frequently for surgery and medications because they cant get the type of care they need or want in Canada. Go to the hospital here and talk to the doctors and they will tell you how many patients they have that are canadians. http://helpthemiddleclass.
