I too think that there are other veins that are restricted, yet undiscovered. I believe we will look at CCSVI a whole lot differently in the future as the good Dr.'s learn more.
I will be greatful if this just slows the progression while they get to that book learnin stuff. I will be greatful if the progresion just stops. I knew going in that my chances were slim with PPMS but everything just kind of fell in place for me to be treated. I want to be in control of this but know ultimately it's not me, kind of humbling.
My small improvements are encouraging, and I am planning on slowly building my excersize routine. Hard not to over do the excersize, not my nature. My wife knows this fortunately and is constantly reminding me to take it slow. I want it all back and I want it now. I want to sign up for that next triathlon (tough when you can't swim or run with just one side working). It's great to be spectator, but I'm selfish by nature. I would like to play tennis with my kids rather than coach at court side. Again a humbling experience. I would love the opportunity for my Senior High son to have the chance to beat the old man.
So come on science, come on research, catch up to my expectations.
My prayer is that my darling man's hopes remain while research and science catch up. The other day he said "the future is bright".
