Shirley Renshaw I know it is but fix us now anyway. It is becoming a feeble excuse :(

has been Liberated and is en route back to the ROCK!
Mark Lane Thank you Poland for your kind hospitality, empathy and professionalism.
Mark Lane I feel great! Life is good! Never had many issues but any of those I did have seem to be slowly dissappearing. I look forward to the days, weeks and years ahead!!
Mark Lane Hi Perry, I has stenosis of my R Internal Jugular of approximately 70%. The Left jugular and the azygous were fine. Glad to hear you are feeling better also. I will touch base upon return.

Thérèse Laliberté Les questions qui devaient être posées ont été posées et se devaient de l'être.Le Dr Duncan comprend bien la situation et les enjeux en cause!

Ms. Kirsty Duncan (Etobicoke North, Lib.):
Mr. Speaker, today people living with MS are protesting across this country, including on Parliament Hill, for clinical trials for the new liberation procedure for chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency or CCSVI.
...Over 1,500 liberation procedures have been performed worldwide, with researchers from Bulgaria, Italy, Kuwait and the United States showing similar results, namely that 87% to 90% of MS patients show venous abnormality. Of the 400 cases reviewed by Canada's Dr. MacDonald, 90% show a venous problem and, of the 381 patients angioplastied, the gold standard, by Dr. Simka in Poland, 97% show a problem.
We need evidence-based medicine in Canada. Again, I call on the government to collect the evidence through clinical trials and a registry. Time is brain and any delay in clinical trials possibly means more damage and may mean the difference between walking and not walking, living on their own or in care, or living and not.
CCSVI at UBC MS Clinic - Information and Support
If you've been treated, when you crossed the border did you tell them you were going for medical reasons or just for a holiday? Any issues? ~Sandrajeudi
CCSVI at UBC MS Clinic - Information and Support This article from the Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences strikes an optimistic tone: "Abstract: From the earliest pathological studies the perivenular localization of the demyelination in multiple sclerosis (MS) has been observed. It has recently been suggested that obstructions to venous flow or inadequate veno...us valves in the great veins in the neck, thorax and abdomen can cause damaging backflow into the cerebral and spinal cord circulations. Paolo Zamboni and colleagues have demonstrated abnormal venous circulation in some multiple sclerosis patients using non-invasive sonography and invasive venography. Furthermore, they have obtained apparent clinical improvement or stabilization by endovascular ballooning of points of obstruction in the great veins in some, at least temporarily. If non-invasive observations by others validate their initial observations of a significantly increased prevalence of venous obstructions in MS then trials of angioplasty/stenting would be justified in selected cases in view of the biological plausibility of the concept.

Patricia O'Connor I WENT TO BOOK FOR CCSVI FOLLOW UP IN BARRIE. THEY WANT $250 for checking for restenosis since I got back from Bulgularia.

Newfey Rock Hi, all my fellow msers. Today I went to see my GP for my regular b12 shot. Has always I ask him if he heard anything new in the "medical world" about ccsvi! Like always, no!... But he said thanks for reminding me! I need to call my patient to try and convince him not to go overseas for ccsvi!!! because its a waste of ...money!! So I said, "I cant wait tell the next time you see him, and he has improved". Then I added, Im going in the new year too! It was a big let down for me when he said that. It had seemed like he was starting to come on-board!
CCSVI at UBC MS Clinic - Information and Support He always said that he did not want people to shell out thousands of dollars and he always was opposed to medical tourism. I think he took some major heat at the symposium. He said if a person had SPMS or PPMS, he would take the chance. I`d tend to agree and who`s doing these `tests`...
Darrell Watchorn isn't it time to throw down the guantlet rather than continuously attempt to appease these neurologists who have ignored the vascular connection to MS for years answer is plain and simple anybody with obstructed veins that need to be repaired, repair the vien whether the individual has MS or doesn't have MS but quit exculding us just because we have MS!!!!!
Jackie Garraway An update taken from False Creek Health Center FB page regarding their blood flow study...this was posted 2 hours ago -
Hello Garrett and everyone. Dr. Meakin and Dr. Chambers are carefully screening the applications. So far we have selected and contacted 20 individuals for the non-MS control group. We will soon be con...tacting individuals with MS, who match the gender and age of the control group.
Roy Green, Corus Radio Network, is interviewing two women who are planning to go outside Canada for CCSVI treatment (Amy Gaylord-Preston, and Julie Goodwin). Saturday (Oct 16) at 2:45pm (Central).

Michelle Walsh If you have MS and live in Canada you still have strong, determined group of MSers STILL fighting for you and we will not stop until the day MS patients are not discriminated against in having a Vascular Condition treated for our blocked veins. Set the fact we have MS aside and treat us for our Vascular condition Join ...us now to make this happen www.angioplastyforall.com
I forgot to mention my experience. The doctor and nurses at the clinic were great. I had two blockages in my left neck vein. A large balloon had to be used to open it. I felt a lot of pressure. The right neck and the argos vein in chest were partially blocked-small balloon was used to open. Didn't require a stint. Dr was please with how things went.
3 months ago before angioplasty I could not drink any alcoholic beverages because my balance and my center of gravity was already making me feel as though I was drunk. Tonight is the third time in the past week that I've had a glass of wine. #1 night: I felt relaxed #2 night I was tired so felt a bit woozy #3 night: I feel relaxed and am on my way to bed to watch tv and probably crash. lol I love wine! :-0
Luciano Vascotto I'm back from Poland. I see results as well as my PSWs have seen changes while handling me. I caught a bladder infarction and bronchitis∕pneumonia the last days I was there. I'm still recuperating. The medications they put me on is working. So many others before me had the surgery, and they are having improvements. So...me show fast improvements after the surgery, others days later, and others small improvements, but improvements nevertheless. All where sent to the hospital for observation and rest after the surgery. I just wanted you to know. I added pictures and movies of the trip on my website, www.lucvas.com. I have to go and rest now.
