I had an appointment with a local FSIR a couple of weeks ago and spent 1.5 hours with him discussing CCSVI. He was not totally convinced after the appointment but told me he would call Dr. Scalfani (because he knew him) and then get back with me.
I discovered he not only spoke with Dr. Scalfani, he went to the CCSVI symposium on Monday.
Well, he called me today, another long conversation, and he said he would treat me! Yippiee...
He is going to try and get insurance authorization and then will call me back to schedule my venoplasty.
happy dance happy dance
I converted another IR for the cause! YAY me! Yay CCSVI liberation fighters!
