    Waiting for a referral to go through can take more than 9 months I was told.
    Fucking seriously? Reason is there are only 3 Drs in all of Alberta.
    By the time I get to see a specialist the surgery will be much more invasive.
    I’d say oh put me on the wait list for BC Drs too but you can’t x borders because health care is provincial so they won’t pay.
    I’m so mad r n because I can’t sleep in this much pain.

    Are you sure they wont pay in BC? For small stuff they will as long as you've only been there less than 3 months

    But since you need a referral to get on the wait list, why would they put me on the list?

    My dr would have to write the referral so at that point does she cancel the AB referrals? There are only 3 Drs in BC too lol

    I've been waiting since December to see an ENT, for what was classed as "severe sleep apnea"

    You must have a really severe case? My dr told me if I end up in the ER I will likely jump up on the list.



    Can’t you die from severe sleep apnea? Hopefully you can see someone soon. Do you already have to sleep with a bane mask?

    More an unusual case, it was the alcohol allergy they were trying to figure out - didn’t help at all, just found out I’m allergic to dust

    And if you die in the ER, you'll jump straight to the front of the list?

    Are you intentionally not sharing what the health problem is?

    When my back problem was discovered I had to wait ~6 months to see a doctor and then months more for treatment (back brace).

    Wish I were a rich american :pray:
