Hi,

I am new to this website. I find this place is a great forum for refuge and catharsis. I am pretty much in the same boat as everyone else. I have very negative body image thanks to my gynecomastia which isn't very acute... but it still is a very stifling and embarrassing situation to deal with....summers are the worst especially when its windy... I am quite goodlooking..so people tell me and they  find it strange that i am not in a relationship.....does anyone here know of good doctors in canada, maybe in ontario or quebec? any personal experiences with canuck doctors?

Thanks in advance! Hold your head high, guys! It's hard but be positive!
Cheers!

Welcome to the site!    :)

Sorry I can't give you any Canada doctors' names but I'm sure somebody will be able to recommend one.  That being said, you have indeed found a great place for refuge and support.

Hi It's Gone!

I am glad that the op went well and that you are satisfied with the results. Were the costs coveres by OHIP? I am assuming not, eh? What are some of the options that one can exercise  to finance? How expensive is the op?
Thanks a tonne , man!

Many thanks GB! So OHIP does cover excision? I'll have to visit a doctor to find oout whathe recommends.
