'I feel totally abandoned': Manitoba woman waiting for knee surgery
from CBC News
Next month, Winnipeggers who need knee or hip replacement surgery will no longer receive publicly funded outpatient physiotherapy to help them recover. The two procedures are not on the WRHA list of clinical criteria, released last week, for patients to receive outpatient physiotherapy service when it's centralized at the Health Sciences Centre in late November. "I'm not eligible. I have no private insurance, so I'm just on my own. There's no help from the government. No help from our healthcare system. I feel totally abandoned," said Meridel Archambeau, 81, who has osteoarthritis and needs both of her knees replaced.
