Everyday I'm humbled by the folks who post on this board. Thank you so much for responding to my post. It means a lot to me.
Mangio: Thanks for the pm, I'll pursue all the avenues I can.
Annad: I'd be interested in hearing what, if any Neuro you went with after leaving the London MS Clinic. Please feel free to pm me. I've had more than one less than satisfactory appt there, and I'm not a "difficult" patient, nor is my particular form of MS 'difficult.' I have found that any question I have, no matter how simple, is quite unwelcome.
PCakes: I still have High Hopes
I will keep on keeping on. Someone will listen to me, even if I'm just an ant on yet another rubber tree plant!
Ndwannabe: applause welcome, anytime
Brightspot: Yes, I will contact Health Canada. It was all I could do not to spout, "Who do you think you work for?????" I think he see's his practice as "his" and "his" alone. We've had some conversations over the years and I believe that his practice, to him, is merely a means to and end...to support his family. Period. End of story. Though I do like him personally, he's never ever gone beyond the routine. That includes interpreting B12 tests that I believe are low, but he's interpreting with old data. As anyone in Canada knows though, it's tough to find a new GP these days, and I also worry that he'll "fire" me as a patient if I become too demanding. He only has 1 other MS patient. Most of his practice consists of young families with the usual vaccines, check up etc and older folks, again with the usual issues.
My sincerest thanks to you all for your input and support. You guys truly do rock
