Award-winning comedy writer, Ian Heydon (Kingswood Country, How Green Was My Cactus, The Samuel Pepys Show, The Year My Country Broke) recently took out an unexpected award – for writing about travelling with a disability.
In 2010 Ian was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That led to the question – what does a writer who has a disability and who loves to travel write about? The answer was pretty obvious. Because Ian uses a cane for mobility assistance, he built a website called Cane & Able Travel and that site won the inaugural Business disAbility Award for Business Innovation in 2012.
Back in 2003, Ian had a travel book on Australia published called The Small Guide to A Big Country (Explore) and he subsequently bought a travel agent’s licence (Small Guide Travel). Much of Ian’s research for that book is still valid. As Ian says, “They haven’t moved the Sydney Opera House or most of Australia’s main attractions, so all I really needed to do was update where necessary and add the accessibility and disability facility information. It’s a bonus that the Small Guide Travel consultants can assist with itinerary advice and bookings.”
When Ian travels these days he uses both a cane and a wheelchair for getting around. “Before my diagnosis with MS I guess I felt a bit of pity when I saw other people in wheelchairs. I didn’t realise that wheelchairs give a person with a disability so much freedom. Mine allows me to get around much better at airports, especially when the boarding gate can be a fair distance from check-in, and it makes art galleries, museums and theatre so much more accessible and enjoyable.”
Ian first took his wheelchair on a trip to Dubai, London and Paris in 2012. While there are websites with attractions and disability information for those destinations in the pipeline, Ian’s first priority is writing about Australia. In late 2012 he visited Cairns and road-tested attractions like Skyrail and Quicksilver’s Great Barrier Reef as well as disabled-friendly accommodation. From this came the destination specific website, Cairns Disabled Travel.
The next cab of the rank was Canberra. According to Ian, Canberra is arguably Australia’s most rewarding destination for travellers with a disability. “There are flights from all other major cities and centres, they have an excellent public transport and wheelchair-assisted taxi system and all the major attractions are accessible, with many of them free. There’s excellent accommodation, terrific restaurants and bars and so much to see and do. It really is a fabulous tourist destination. Sure, after a couple of weeks there might be some thumb twiddling but for a few days away it is fabulous.” Ian visited Canberra in 2011 and 2013 to research accessible accommodation and attractions and the Canberra Disabled Travel website is now live.
Ian has a multi-destination itinerary on the drawing board for all Australian capital cities and major regional centres so you could see him soon in your part of the country. But the Kingswood? No, he won’t be taking the Kingswood!
You may be wondering what exactly is Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
(UGS) is and how it can benefit you. If are interested in learning more about Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, then continue to read on.
What Is Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
If you have ever wanted to look into varicose vein removal services, then you may have heard about Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy. The procedure is considered one of the best varicose vein removal procedures there is. It is very safe and it is very effective at removing varicose veins. It is a great alternative to surgery.
How The Procedure Works
The reason why the procedure works so well is because of duplex ultrasoun. The duplex ultrasound locates the vein/veins that cannot be seen with the human eye. These hidden veins are what cause the bulges on the surface. After the veins are discovered, you will receive a certain amount of injections. Once the first procedure is completed a may need a follow-up examinations. However, some people do need a few more follow-up procedures in order for success, but keep in mind that everybody is different. You may only need one procedure done, or you may need a few. The procedure is very simple and is one of the easiest ways to treat varicose veins. All a person does is lay on the treatment couch, receive the ultrasound, a few injections and that is it.
The Benefits Of UGS
UGS has many benefits, and being less traumatic than surgery may be the best benefit. Many people have said that they felt more comfortable going for a UGS than they did going in for surgery.
Another benefit of UGS is affordability. It is much more affordable than surgery. People with all types of budgets find that the procedure is a very affordable option.
Not only is the procedure an affordable varicose vein removal option, but it is also a very quick procedure when compared to surgery. Since UGS is quick and not as complicated as surgery, there is no need to take time off of work. There are many people who go in for the procedure and then go to work just a few short hours later, with no complications.
Many people who go in for surgery to get their varicose veins removed they often complain about pain after the surgery and the amount of time it takes to heal from surgery is longer than they expected. However, that is not the case with UGS. When a person goes in for UGS they can expect a very quick healing process. Not only is the healing process very quick, but the procedure is virtually painless.
Many varicose vein removal procedures can leave scars and if a person decides to go for surgery, then they may have to receive stitches. People who choose UGS will be pleased to know that the procedure will not leave any scars. Not only will there be no scars once the procedure is completed, but no stiches will be required. This means that most people will not even be able to notice that a person has even got the procedure done.
As mentioned earlier people are often shocked at how affordable UGS is, but what shocks them even more is that most medical insurers covers all costs associated with UGS or almost all the costs. If a person does not have insurance, then they will most likely still be able to afford the procedure.
If you are like many people, then you may not feel comfortable going under anesthesia. This is the reason why many people prefer not to go in for surgery when they want their varicose veins removed. When a person goes in for UGS, there is no need for anesthesia and there is no admission to a hospital.
The results are the biggest benefits of receiving UGS. There is no permanent fix for getting rid of varicose veins, but UGS is the closest thing to a permanent cure for varicose veins. People who end up getting UGS are usually very happy with their results and the procedure ends up working out better than they could ever imagine.
