9 good days in a row!! (plus the 2 amazing days in Poland!) Aside from the occasional normal fatigue, energy has been really good (not that crippling MS fatigue). Limp is almost non-existant, clear head, sleeping well, etc. My husband was travelling on business, and one night they went to a casino at midnight - before the procedure he could never have managed it.
Can't wait until I no longer count the good days - right now I'm just grateful for each new one. I know there are still risks about using stents, so there is a tempered optimism, but at least there is a real solid hope for the future - one that won't be dominated by MS.
Governments around the world need to seriously start funding CCSVI, especially here in Canada. According to the CBC website, Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world, at 240 cases per 100,000 people. Approximately 75,000 Canadians have the disease, and half of the population knows someone who has it!!! Why is our government waiting to act? Why aren't they talking to people who have been liberated? Why can we not lead the world as a compassionate country that puts the needs of those that are sick and suffering over profits?
God bless all the doctors that are pioneering this treatment around the world - especially the very brave, and exceptional Polish Drs. Simka and Ludyka. We will forever be grateful.
