CTV NEWS ON FRIDAY, NOV. 19, 2010!

Postby Issy » Mon Nov 22, 2010 12:45 pm

I WATCHED THE LATE NEWS ON FRIDAY AND SAW A SAD CCSVI TRAGEDY ABOUT A MAN WHO HAD TRAVELLED TO COSTA RICA TO HAVE HIS PROCEDURE AND ALSO RECEIVED A STENT. HE SUFFERED SOME COMPLICATIONS AT HOME AND WENT TO THE ST.CATHERINES, ONT. EMERGENCY DEPT. WHERE HE WAS TURNED AWAY!? HIS FAMILY IS DEMANDING AN INVESTIAGATION. DR. ZAMBONI AND DR. MACDONALD ( BARRIE, ONT. IR. ) WERE ALSO IN THE INTERVIEW. THE LAST COMMENT WAS THAT THE CANADIAN M.S. SOCIETY WAS ASKING FOR DOCTORS TO HELP THE CCSVI PATIENT IF THERE ARE ANY COMPLICATIONS!????

It's awful, isn't it. It's being discussed in a few other threads. He didn't actually pass at St. Cate's, he was turned away untreated despite them identifying a clot in his stent, so he raised money to returned to Costa Rica and passed away there.

I am still mad at the Canadian MS Society for their stance against CCSVI and their influence against it but at least they are on our side in asking for follow-up care to be provided.

Is there any evidence that he was turned away? Or did the Canadian doctor think it was best to leave the clot alone?
