There is an American Access Care in North Carolina, when I was at the Brooklyn AAC there was a tech being trained in CCSVI ultrasounds because she was being transferred to the North Carolina branch. I ask because I am reminded of pklittle's case, who had no improvements and then was found months later to have had an early clot, and bizzy's case, who had no improvements and then was found at her 1 month appointment to have had a clot. (Pklittle and bizzy, I hope it is ok to mention your names?) It could be a reason to get a cheap doppler ultrasound to check for a clot before months pass.
Gradual improvements is definitely one of the possible courses, Dr. Siskin placed a third of people he saw into that category!

I was kind of hoping for major things, so I didn't notice the minor. However, I take them being there (clearer speech, mood improvements, piano playing eventually) as a good sign, and I'm kind of fighting harder than I was to try to improve the rest in the longer term. I think the best signs I have had are that no matter how small the changes, they seem to be mostly in the direction of "better", and that they are continuing to arrive almost daily, after 7-8 months. Yesterday I felt my fingertip better than I think I have since about 1989. Placebo, schlemebo, who cares?
But ya gotta work at it.
Do you have warmer toes? A rosier complexion?

I'd decided that I really liked Dr. McGuckin's approach and philosophy, so decided to go with him rather than AAC for the procedure, but what a luxury to have had a choice of two local treatment sites, and no wait! Thanks for the info!
