Why on earth would your hopes be hung on the outcome of a single person???? Isn't that a bit ridiculous?
There are quite a number of people who have seen no results, or only temporary improvements, or some have worsened too, like Loobie. I think the more realistic we all are, the more aligned our expectations will be with what the outcome is. It just makes it harder for people to even admit when things aren't the way they would have liked when expectations and hopes are unrealistic because we haven't heard the unhappy endings.
We do everyone a huge service by being honest and critical about the results and when no one hides poor outcomes. After all, a lot of people are spending a lot of money on the possibility of a good outcome built almost solely on word of mouth results. People who care about other MSer's need to be as honest as they can about their results. Some people are putting their entire financial lives on the line for this.
Loobie, I salute you for your honesty, and I'm sorry that you're struggling right now. I hope Dr. Dake has some positive answers for you that ease your mind and maybe even turn your situation around. Thanks for your honesty, we all need to know even the results that aren't what we want them to be.
