agreed, although it is not completely clear what they should be
and the lack of knowledge or willing doctors to help you when you return home.
And IMO the use of stents.
CUREious said that Dr. Sclafani was a genius doctor and we'd be in good hands with him. Is he a genius except when it comes to his decision not to use stents and to let other doctors and other patients carry out that experiment? Or is that part of that genius.
Assuming these people have a huge lack of knowledge is incredibly obnoxious.
I have cogfog, it makes things harder. Others with MS, making these decisions, have cogfog too, to differing degrees. If people are going into this with the reasonable and humane assumption that they'll get follow-up care back home, then that can be a dangerous lack of knowledge. But rather I think people go into it with the assumption that the horror story won't happen to them. Yet it happens to some of us.
