"I'm feeling pretty awesome," she said. "My fatigue is gone. I can shower by myself and do my hair by myself.

"I can do everything on my own."
"My headaches were gone instantly. I went in with a headache and I came out without one," she recalled.
"I still have the weakness, but that's because of the damage that was done before. So now I have to go to physiotherapy three times a week so they can retrain my brain to get that leg working properly again," she said.

“So far I have renewed energy. I am hoping it is not a psychosomatic thing, it has allowed me to do more.

“If nothing else I feel like it has energised me. I definitely feel a bit more lively.”

'Airdrie MS patient calls new research "doom and gloom" '

Gayle Clayton is seen here walking down the stairs in her home right after her liberation treatment in Cabo San Lucas last year. Before the surgery, she was unable to walk up or down stairs unaided.
“I didn’t get the results I wanted but it stopped my symptoms from progressing and I haven’t gotten any worse,” said Clayton.
The procedure cost Clayton about $15,000 but she said it was worth every penny because she felt a difference in her symptoms the minute she woke up in recovery.

“I have more energy and psychologically it has helped a lot,” she said.

'Twins happy with therapy'

Dan has started to take muscle relaxants now because he feels minor symptoms coming back.

But his condition today is far better than last year, when he felt numbness down his left side and stumbled with a foot drop.
Meanwhile, his brother is still riding high after the procedure showed him great results.

“I don’t have too many complaints, when I first went down, I was in pretty bad shape,” said Matt. “I couldn’t walk at all – it’s a miracle.”

The brothers are back enjoying life – fishing, golfing and taking care of the hobby farm they inherited.

My question - are they identical twins? And if so, did they have identical CCSVI malformations that would then presumably be of genetic origin?

'Liberating Nicole'

In the recovery room Nicole stated she could feel her legs for the first time in three years.

It was a “crap shoot,” said Powell, but there was a 33 per cent improvement. Nicole’s short term memory improved as did the warmth in her hands and feet.

“My head feels unstuffed,” said Nicole to her mother shortly after the procedure. She also said her legs felt stronger. Nicole has been confined to a wheelchair and movement and touch are painful.

While it may not seem like a big deal to some, Nicole walked (with help) to the sand on the beach in California.

“She walked 20 feet to get into the sand, she loved it, then she walked back to the path and into the chair,” said Powell.

This patient has Lyme disease, not MS. She's a teenager, in a wheelchair.

"I feel good, I feel really good. I don't have fatigue, I can withstand the heat here now."
Butler said overall, she's happy with her own health improvements.

"I'm not running any marathons, nor do I expect to. They'll probably find a cure for MS when I'm 64."

'MS surgery helpful, but no miracle'

For the first two months post operation, she saw noticeable results.

“I still used my cane but I was a lot faster and I could lift my left leg more than I ever could for quite some time,” she said. Since mid July, however, the benefits have waned. She still feels minor improvements in her mobility and suffers less of what MS patients call “brain fog.”

"I was walking around in a brain fog, suffering terrible fatigue and loss of bladder control a year ago," said Rushton, "but those symptoms disappeared almost overnight after I had the surgery."

Cascanette's other daughter, who also suffers from the debilitating disease, also traveled to Rhode Island to receive liberation treatment.

Her condition is much better, and while she wasn't previously confined to a wheelchair, the treatment has relieved her of severe headaches, tingling limbs, and she no longer walks with a cane.

Hubbert says immediately afterward he realized he could feel sensation in his hands, which had gone numb 15 years before. He's stopped using a wheelchair and has gone off medications for spasticity, fatigue and bladder control.

Since his operation Davies said he still limps when he walks, however he can walk three to four times longer and with a lot less difficulty.
For Davies the benefits of the operation have outweighed the risks as, he says, the strength he's been able to recuperate after his Liberation Treatment has been tremendous.

Arata said some patients don't experience any improvement, but he's also seen undeniable results, like the patient who couldn't eat, speak or move her limbs.

"I had a patient within 15 minutes who was sitting up, eating in recovery and was saying, 'thank you,' '' Arata said. "The whole family was crying. I was crying."
