My wife Melanie, is scheduled for a venography this coming Friday, April 9 at a major New England medical center. Melanie was dx’d with a mild case of MS in August of 2007. Her symptoms include a heavy right leg, balance issues, burning skin, etc. Thanks to this forum (thank you Cheerleader!), we took it upon ourselves to call the interventional radiologist at our local medical center this past November. He had never heard of CCSVI, but was interested as soon as I explained what it was. A few weeks later, he had my wife come in for a Doppler. He found some turbulence in the left jugular, and felt it was sufficient evidence to proceed with the venography (he felt an MRV wasn’t necessary). Luckily, he is friends with both Dr. Dake and Dr. Sclafani and is now in contact with them.
I’m not at liberty to disclose the doctor at this point, but hopefully will do so in the future. Tomorrow 4/6, we meet with him to go over the procedure, and Friday is the big day! We will keep you posted.
