There are a number of us on this site that have had the procedure and know that in our world there is a relationship between CCSVI and MS. Nobody knows what that relationship may turn out to be. And, yes Bob, there is not a credible body of science that proves anything either way, but, hey, it worked for me and with your wife having a non-aggressive case, you can afford to wait. Stalemate.
ColRose continuously makes the point that there cannot be any relationship between clogged veins and MS and in fact clogged veins can not cause harm. If CCSVI has no relationship to MS, then how come some have various degrees of improvement, some have various degrees of degradation, particularly when imaging shows restenosis. Restenosis disproves placebo.
Either there is a relationship between the two or there is not. If there is not then having an IR balloon your veins should neither positively nor negatively affect MS symptoms. If your symptoms are affected one way or the other there is a relationship. Of course I am only speaking for me and my relationship with MS and CCSVI. I know neither you nor ColRos have a personal relationship with either.
