Last night, one of the doctors here said to me that a female doctor from Slovenia has done almost 65 procedures. We didn't get into the details. Apparently there were lots of Slovenians doing the procedure in Romania, so she set up things in Slovenia to do it locally.

This Slovenian doctor gave some lectures here in Fundación Favaloro (It is the top vascular facility here in Argentina).

oh, yes I know!

Reading her post I reminded what I listened yesterday and I just wanted to let her know that in her part of Europe there are trials in that country also.

I would be interested to know what's going on in other parts of S. America!

Thank you RuSmolikova!
This is Slovakia: <shortened url>
My country is very small and not as famous as Argentina.
I even loved wine in Buenos Aires much more than Slovak wine. Of course I loved tango. Of course I miss it a lot :cry:
I never visited Slovenia :oops:

Dear Erika,

Sorry if I was not clear! I really know that Slovakia is not Eslovenia! In fact I even remember when it was part of Czechoslovakia and watching the football (soccer) national team in the world cups! And that was not Slovenia for sure!

I just wanted to let you know that in your part (Central Europe) of the world there is another country doing procedures!

I am really interested in what is going on in my part of the world, so I figured that you too for your part.

Oh, so you visited Argentina! Interesting. I really hope one day to visit your country (and even Slovenia!:wink:).

Don't worry, Argentina is not very known beyond meat, football, maradona, inflation, corruption, economic crisis, default, etc.

But, anyway, it is not that bad!

I was working on a cruise ship (I was a banker on a ship). We spent 4 months cruising from Brasil, Uruguay to Argentina. The most of our passangers were from these countries. I will never forget it.

I'd love to viset Argentina. I love Argentinian cinema too. Although I can only think of Hector Alterio off the top of my head, the list of great Argentinian actors is long. Yes, I'd really love to visit Argentina.

But anyway, back to the point at hand. You missed out Dr Tariq and Dr Sameh of Kuwait practising in Alexandria, Egypt. I only wish that I could go and have the procedure done again, I really enjoyed the whole experience! Even with my phobia of medical stuff.

Yes, there are so many places that I'd like to visit. Sadly my MS makes travelling so difficult but I think this year I shall just forget my problems and go where I please. Perhaps Buenas Aires? Actually, thinking as I type, that's not a bad idea. I think I shall do it! Thanks for the idea Erika!
