Barre google de traduction très utile pour la fin!
Moins de posts, dimanche oblige. Pourtant, après ma sortie d'hier, j'ai remonté le fil de l'accueil à 8h du matin pour ne rien rater! Dimanche...
D'abord une vidéo de citations positives qui a circulé hier et que j'ai aimé: pleine de sagesse!
Me voici revenue d'Albany!!
J'ÉTAIS BOUCHÉE!! Il y avait 3 veines ou je pouvais être bouchée et elles étaient bouchée les 3!!
Donc voilà, l'expérience là-bas a vraiment été forte en émotions mais absolument tout le monde était génial, du Docteur aux infirmières...
C'était une journée ou il y avait 5 canadiens!! J'en connaissais 3. De plus il y avait un médecin canadien qui 'observait' les procédures et qui nous a confirmé qu'effectivement c'était bien qu'on soit là parce que ce sera long avant d avoir ça au Canada...
Le Docteur Siskin était absolument génial et tellement dévoué, passionné. Il a dit combien c'était gratifiant voir autant de gens qui retrouve l'espoir d'une nouvelle vie de changement suite a l'angioplastie.
Je n'ai pas de stent mais ma jugulaire gauches était presque totalement bloquée, avec du reflux sanguin, ensuite mon azygos (environ entre les omoplates) était pas mal bouchée également, et ma jugulaire droite était bouchée également. Donc j'ai ''mal'' à mon coup, mais sans plus. (Ça fait mal quand j'avale et c'est tout!!)
Mes améliorations jusqu'à maintenant sont : que je n'ai plus l'air d'un vampire, j'ai enfin un teint rosé!! J'ai de l'endurance pas mal plus qu'avant, à être debout par exemple!
Aussi je marche avec plus de stabilité même en terrain vague, sans poteau près.
Donc c'est ça mais bon on s'entend que ça fait à peine 48h...
J'ai un film que je suis en train de convertir de ma jugulaire gauche.
*Echos de murs, à lire absolument, il est question de la douleur dans les stents, mais aussi de l'absurdité de ne pas pratiquer l'angioplastie, courante pour les non SEPiens. on a là la preuve que les labos s'interposent!
* Carol Prest If you have an opinion on how the MS Society is advocating on your behalf for CCSVI testing and treatment, go to their Facebook pages and let them know how you feel...MS Society of Canada FB and MS Society of Canada, Alberta Chapter FB
Carol Prest Important read how the Yves Savoie (MS Society) and Neurologists (Freedman and O'Connor) jointly support/advocate for Tysabri to get approved by Provincial health care in spite of the known risks.
* CCSVI Calgary We're up to 900 Facebook fans! Yee-haw!
* Trish Jensen If I hear the words 'placebo effect' one more time, I will go stark raving mental!
Laddie, daddie, and everybody that has the treatment, can't ALL be experiencing 'placebo effect'; the treatment may just very well be the remedy to it all. I'm just sayn;.
*Steve Morgan I'd like to know why the CCSVI placebo effect works so much better than all the others.
*Trish Jensen Oh, please...If the treatment had the backing of a drug company...They would be jamming down our throats! The fact that we, the MS community now are using our own voices, saying that at the very LEAST, give an option, you know?, now the medical community is on the defensive. No one likes the squeaky wheel, but it always gets the grease in the end.
*Aaron Thompson Give me a little placebo, this Tysabri ain't doin' sh** for me.
Wow! I just saw this on TIMS: I have steppred down as chief of radiology to dedicate my attention on ccsvi. I will ansswer questions when I return to new york
* Ken Torbert via Denise Manley : CTV Calgary- Premiers on the fence about controversial MS treatment - CTV Newscalgary.ctv.ca
Matt Brinck I still feel any study is a waste of time. A blockage is a blockage. Not having MS they would fix it. Total discrimination. Where are the lawsuits. Not saying anything new. I just wonder how they can get away with this? Venoplasty is not a untested platform. Its not experimental. Hogwash again and their playing mulehockey!
I'm going for a scan on Aug. 19th at the Hubbard Institute in San Diego. If they discover blockages I am going to see a vascular surgeon in Seattle. If they will not agree to open up the blocked veins, I'm going to talk to an attorney. If a...nyone else has had this happen, please tell me what you did. It doesn't even seem right that I have to pay the $2,500 for the scan but much less 'right' if the blockage is there and they won't fix it. Has there been any law suits to date? If an outcome is in favor of the patient, maybe the elected officials will think twice about the fence.
* Ken Torbert Step by Step directions on how to get the liberation treatment done in the USStep #1: Fire your Neurologist! Do NOT allow a Dr. to be in the way of recieving treatment, learn all you can! Step #2: Do what you have to do to get an MRV. You need to be referred by a doctor...By: Denise Manley

I grew up at a family cottage and now it's been sold so I have to just remember how great it was and we take at least one driv eup to the area each summer.

Closing on the new hou...se is Wed! Final move is next weekend!! YAY!!!!!!!!!
*Tessa Rushton via CCSVI AUSTRALIA :
per Kerri: CCSVI AUSTRALIA This presentation aims at contributing towards resolving some of the most burning issues of multiple sclerosis research. Of central importance is the pathogenic relevance of flow inversions pushing back into parti...cular venous drainages of the brain or spinal canal. The author is wholeheartedly convinced that by demonstrating the impact of these venous flow-inversions and their cerebrospinal fluid displacements, directly in vivo and/or at post mortem, the relevant venous anomalies can better be understood and remedied. Kerri
Tessa Rushton Tomorrow... it's the kitchen... hmm this'll challenge my strength! LOL
Tessa Rushton So excited to be able to dust all the furniture in one go! Nap time again :)
Tessa Rushton Staying hydrated is so important post angioplasty! If I start feeling bad, I drink water - it is amazing how quickly I feel better! the vascular system loves water :)
* Ken Torbert CCSVI steals the spotlight at meeting of Canadian politicians; Treatment Available in Mexico
I`m not surprised at the reaction of the NS premier, Darrell Dexter. When we had the rally in front of the NS parliament on May 5, a friend of mine cornered him afterwards and he is quoted as saying, "Oh, no. The testing is far too dangerou...s !" Wonder if any of his female relatives have ever had an ultrasound test - as venous doppler is THE SAME THING EXCEPT ON THE NECK !!! This is laughable.....we`ll know which party NOT to vote for in the next election. Guess the province has more money to waste on MS meds than to actually do a simple, non-life threatning procedure.
Ken Torbert " How come insurance covers Viagra and not CCSVI, they are both vascular blood flow problems!" Ken Torbert
Judy Filipkowski Oh Ken, that gave me my Sunday laugh! Wonder if Darrell Dexter falls into this category!
Wow, "Boner-pills" are covered, but not angioplasty for CCSVI, what a mess! What does that tell you about healthcare in North Amererica?
You can let yourself go and we'll provide you a pill so you can get your rocks off, but if you have a P...ROVEN BLOCKAGE no dice. What a world!
Christopher Alkenbrack Reminded me of what I read about Dr. Gianfranco Campalani, the heart surgeon with MS that had the angioplasty treatment twice. http://for-greet.squarespace.com/journal/tag/gianfranco-camplani He never took MS meds, but he admitted to using viagra. Gotta love the Italians, eh ? Priorities, priorities.
