Not a rumour, it's true. I got an email from EHC today, and their waitinglist will start tomorrow, wednesday.

Treatment starts up in August it looks like - waiting list opens tomorrow.

CCSVI grows a little more (actually this is a LOT more) - since the UK is a big world player.

Now we just need to get this across the pond to the US.

Excellent news!
Maybe I could go there for my follow up apointment, so I don't have to go all the way back to Bulgaria to make sure its not restenosed :-)
Found a vascualar guru in a normal hospital, and his email adress. I asked about ccsvi, and how the national health service would respond to refferals from GP's about follow up apointments after surgery done privately abroad. Said it proabably wasn't just me that would prefer not having to go abroad again, just to make sure we haven't restenosed. Maybe they have som guidlines to follow, or maybe they should have some, as I would assume there will be an increasing demand for this.

why can't private clinics do the same in Canada?......there are all sorts of private clinics for naturopathy, massage, chiropractic, etc. etc. ........you pay your own way unless you have insurance coverage.....I'm sure insurance companies would get on board when they find out the cost for CCSVI treatments compared to MS drugs.

What you don't learn in school... Look up the London-Virginia Company, King James the 1st. Don't be satisfied, though - look deeper.

Oops. Echelon just kicked in.
