He is a great scientist with very poor patients human relationship and with a touch of arrogance. For these reasons I quit seeing him this last winter.
I'm betting all my hopes on ccsvi after all what else is there.
Thank you all
I totally agree with you! I actually saw my doctor here, in Winnipeg yesterday, Dr. Cossoy. His remarks were (to paraphrase) that the CCSVI theory need sto be vigorously tested and properly, which I guess he has to say that, right? And also, that he really doesn't agree with the theory, etc. But he did say that five years ago he thought that the suggestion that MS patients and everyone take vitaminD was rather pointless, but that now he can see the reasons for taking vitamin D, so that he is admitting ha has been wrong about certain issues in the past, thought one thing then did a reversal, bla bla bla. I remarked that as a patient, I am desperate and that I need to, want my veins checked and if blocked angioplasty performed.
Then I did mention the footage and testimonials of patients who have had the angioplasty performed and their improvements, some who have greatly improved ...his response-a prepared one, the placebo effect.
The point is his answers were prepared, as if he has to say this, his job too.
So a dead end for me, fr now ... I just hope the proving of this theory doesn't take too long, I'm 33 and I've lost 15 years. It's enough.
Oh, and Freedman should be fired. Hopefully that will happen shortly.
