    Hello
    All this talk about Toronto, and Dr. Wigle...WOW!!!!
    When I had my ablation done in 2000 I beleive that I was number 13. I know that during that year they had many ablations planned. Just from personal expereice, the staff and doctors at Toronto gereral are very knowledgeable in HCM. I was very confident in all of the doctors and surgeons there. We are lucky to have such a place in Canada.

    With all this cold that we have been having here camping in Algonquin sounds great.

    Take Care

      Hi Tara, nice to hear from other Canadians, what area of Toronto do you live, I live in Whitby.
      Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
      So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
      Good luck and stay well.

        Hi
        I grew up in Muskoka, went to public school and high school there. My family still lives up there. Right now I am living in downtown Toronto going to the University of Toronto. I just moved to Toronto in Sept up until than I was living in British Columbia. Moving to downtown Toronto was a little scarey for me at first being from such a small northren Onterio town but its going well for me. I must admit it did take alittle getting usded to.

          Septal Ablation

          Hi Lisa! It's been a long time since I've been on this website - wow, what a change! I'm guilty of not taking the time to read this lately - busy with a new job and all. Anyway, just wanted to add some comments. Russ had his septal ablation a year ago, and unfortunately, his symptoms are coming back big time! We go to UCSF February 5th and see Dr. Chatterjee. Very interested in hearing what he has to say. His ICD doctor in Reno has raised his meds back up but so far, it hasn't done much except make him more tired than usual. I will write again and let you know the outcome of the doctors appointment.

              Tara, we used to spend a lot of time in Muskoka at Arrow Head Provincial Park, Huntsville and Hidden Valley.
              Love the area, I now have a place in Haliburton, so we don't get over there that often anymore.

                I to must add my praise of Dr. Wigle. Although I didn't have ablation, he did my myectomy in 1987. At this time it was a fairly new surgery with under 100 done. He was assisted with the surgery by a Dr. William's I believe from the children's hospital. I found both of the doctors very caring. And just last year I was contacted by Dr. Woo with reguards to the paper that Dr. Wigle is doing. I just wish there were doctors who knew as much as him in Nova Scotia.
