MS can get pretty desperate, desperation makes us gamblers.
I think we need to keep emphasizing that this is not a one-time procedure and that there is a risk of ending up worse (mainly with no aftercare and post-procedure clotting complications despite the blood thinners) and financially broke too. The doctors don't know the full risks but it seems as if proper after-care mitigates the risk. The worst stories now seem to be coming out of Canada, where there is the worst aftercare situation.
