I have personally and recently talked with Dr. Dake and I think the word "Concerns" would have been a better fit than "Fears".
"I'm not completely sure but that seems to the the student newspaper and they have pride in their school and there isn't much incentive for them to slam one of their own research professors"
But that's the point, Lyon, it's JOURNALISM and that's what a student of journalism is taught, to write a headline that GRABS the attention. I was taught the same thing in Art School.
I will not follow the Pied Piper, Kokopelli or any other flute player. I make my own decisions and take my own Knocks. I'm not a blind or zealot follower of CCSVI, I am an individual with MS who is currently researching ALL my options.
I don't believe ANY doctor walks on water, they are human after all with all the same virtues and faults of our species. And I'm not just so sure either way that Dr. Dake did or didn't take liberties with his first CCSVI patients, that's something you can personally discuss with Radeck if you wish. But I stand by my opinion that the use of the term FEAR in the headline is an attempt to sell papers.
See Rici's thread, That is a one bad venous reflux caused by destroyed valve.
I have Congenitally Malformed Valves myself, so of course I am following his thread with great interest. Rici is still a proponent of CCSVI, it's just that he says this is a result of his procedure and that it proves the theory of Dr. Schelling. Magoo, if you haven't read his thread, you need to, it's important! He's suffering greatly, here's his latest post.
Today again around 3:00 PM I had a stroke blood in the Hypothalamus center. Lack of venous valves. Symptoms:chills at the beginning, fever of 39 degrees, severe headache, the inability to walk. Kept 6 hours.
