When I first found TIMS and CCSVI info I read enough to decide I wanted to try it.
I met Dr. Dake. He said he is a CardioVascular surgeon who is diagnosing abnormalities in the venous system.
He is treating some of the abnormalities to open the venous restrictions or occlusions, ie. stents.
He stated that some MS patients had felt better after Liberation, but that was a great unintended result of improving the venous flow.
It is new. He was treating MSers who were knocking his door down to be diagnosed first and then treated second.
He is as excited as we are at how surprisingly well so many (all??) of the Stenters have and are doing.
I am sure he has his theories as to why we feel better. He didn't share them in deep chemical terms with me. He just said he believes that the corrected blood flow thru the brain is important and probably helps.
OK. I did it and I have no more MS symptoms and as far as I am concerned today, I don't have MS.
I have HOPE that everyone who is interested in being diagnosed and/or treated has the opportunity. I want to give you HOPE in that it did work for me.
What didn't work for me??? 10 years ago at diagnosis, the neurologist filled my arms with 4 different CRABS to go home and read and decide what I wanted to do.
HUH? I have never been able to understand how such an important decision was given to ME to make.
BECAUSE- it doesn't matter which one you take!! If it mattered, then the neurologist would be involved in the decision of the drug. My Opinion.
I was sicker than a dog for YEARS from the (blank) Avonex and THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO GIVE ME HOPE??????????????????
THAT WAS WHAT THE NEURO CALLED MY HOPE FOR MY FUTURE.
Thank You God for CCSVI and the HOPE that we can now have.
and the HOPE that we don't have to fight every close minded neuro who didn't think of it.
Please pray with me that OUR HOPE carries us over the hurdle of close minded ones who really don't understand what it is like to have MS.
OR THEY WOULD BE RIGHT ALONG SIDE US IN THE HOPE TO FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS.
