"It's very frustrating . . . Demoralizing," said Dr. Pat Morley-Forster, who directs a chronic-pain program at St. Joseph's Health Care London that draws patients from Windsor to Hamilton, and from Lake Erie to Tobermory.
Morley-Forster knows pain. She's directed the program for 13 years. Nothing she's seen compares to what's called complex regional-pain syndrome. "You turn into a flaming ball of pain and distress," she said.

"The patients are disbelieved," Morley-Forster said.

One clinic in Ontario is allowed to give higher doses at Toronto Western Hospital, but the dose is short of what's needed for some, Morley-Forster said. She refers only four or five severe cases each year because the wait to be seen is about six months.
In the past, that's left those worst-afflicted to seek help outside Ontario.
Patients had to pay their own way to a clinic in Tampa, Fla., where OHIP paid for high-dose ketamine treatment.
But OHIP has slammed the door on payment, rejecting a claim by a London woman it had approved twice before - the Tampa treatment cut her pain by about half, Morley-Forster said, letting her enjoy a life that had been drowned out by pain.

On the day of surgery, 14.3 per cent of patients in the treatment group had stopped smoking compared to 3.6 per cent in the control group, explains St. Joseph's anesthesiologist Dr. Pat Morley-Forster. t the 30-day follow-up, the difference had increased further to 28.6 per cent in the treatment group and 11 per cent in the control group. As well, the treatment group was ready to be discharged earlier from the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) after surgery.

"These differences were statistically significant," says Dr. Morley-Forster, who is also an associate scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute.
