New to this site. Just want to let you all know that I've just returned from AMEDS Poland. I have been diagnosed with PPMS for about 2 years and live in the UK.
I had the MRI, Doppler, Venogram and then the Angioplasty.
The Doppler didn't show much and the word from the other patients is that their dopplers too were in conclusive. The real test is the venogram, both my jugulars were 60-70% stenosed.
The very next day after the treatment I felt great (and a week later I still do). My balance is better, I can walk normally without a strange gait. I have no foot drag and the brain fog is gone.
How long it'll last I don't know but it has done something and hopefully progression is halted too.
The AMEDS Centrum team are wonderful. They look after you completely as soon as you step off the plane. There is no hint of payment until you are about to leave, their priority is sorting you out! Don't expect luxury, the AMEDS is an end of a ward sectioned off only for CCSVI. The money is spent where it counts. The MRI and Venography equipment is state of the art. The food is not great but that's not really important. For friends and relatives it's fine, there's no visiting hours, come and go as you please. If you're staying over in the hospital and not in a hotel, make sure your meals are planned. There's no food for guests only Dominos Pizza and sometimes a Chinese take-away.
I highly recomend this treatment and hopefully more and more clinics and health authorities pick up on it. Every patient there showed positive signs after Liberation. The whole vibe was positive, there was no hint of 'it's a waste of time'
I went with an open mind as to it's success for me (as we're all different) and worst case I thought well at least I've tried it. Now I have and I can feel benefits and I'm really pleased I went. I wouldn't think twice about doing it again and strongly recomend it to everyone.
