I only found out about the surgery in febuary this year. I only started to look into it in March. I was stuggeling of the sideeffects after Tysabri infusion, and desperate to do something about it.
I found the website http://www.multiplesclerosissurgery.com/
, and started on the top B for bulgaria. I telephone, and soon got apointment, got a cancellation so I got accepted for march. I said it was urgent.
I accepted straight away.
I wouldn't have been able to wait a year. That was the most important part of my decitio, when can I have it done.
I checked into the hospital after I accepted, it seems to be a good hospital. I read through the bulgarian patients reports. I hvae now heard about three operations on forginers, that have been successful. To me that is good enough, as I do not have to wait.
Many people are very happy with the treatment they they have recievd in Poland, and they seem to be a very experienced hospital when it comes to ccsvi. That is important I suppose. In Bulgaria they haven't done quite as many operations, but the leader there has a PhD in phlebology (was that right?)
There was a post on here not long ago about a different private clinic in Poland starting up, ameds i think they were called. Maybe they don't have the longest waitinglists just yet.
I suppose it depends on how ill you are, how urgent is it. How important is it that they are experienced? Browse the web, and find out. Look into the different clincs. Good luck with it
