She got very disappointed and I tried to engourage her. But after two weeks with same situation, I was also disappointed -- and we were sure that there is re-stenosis. But 3 weeks after her condition began to improve, just like after op.. and we were once again surprised and extremely happy. And now, 11 months after her condition has been steady, and MS-symptoms have been away. Two years before operation, she couldn't exercise proberly, but last 6 months she has been able to train hard. Would be very hard to think this as placebo, no way.
That's what I'm talking about! Re-Destenosis!
I have heard of this before from a woman who had the procedure and maintains a mailing list of people interested in CCSVI. Her improvements came while she was on the table, disappeared after a week, then after another week, came back again. Her IR said this was common and described a seven-day cycle. The vein(s) may react to the insult of being balooned by becoming inflamed, so improvements you felt on the table disappear. Once the vein swelling goes down, the improvements return. That's what I understood, anyway.
