I'm glad that you had the venography without complications and free of pain. Probably you will feel a bit scruffy afterwards because of the contrast used, that might cause headaches.
Simka has found that 3% of tested MS cases do not have CCSVI. So your case is either one of this 3% or one that has been misdiagnosed.
To have peace of mind, probably you should send copies of the dvd with your venography to other experienced radiologist. Just to double check that no abnormalities were overlooked.
Have you confirmed your diagnosed MS case with other neurologists? Not all brain lesions are necessarily caused by MS. They need to fit certain criteria. So it might be a good idea to send copies of your MRI scans to other neurologists.
I was tested for Lyme's disease about a year ago. The lab report said that it was negative, but it also mentioned that there is a large margin of error so it could be a false negative. So another test was recommended.
Or there is not a strong connection between CCSVI and MS. You forgot that one.
