there are pro's and con's to many ms treatments as anything else. ccsvi is the main topic here and there are a variety of pro's and con's in the stories we have all had to tell before and after treatment. at first-it was like God had finally answered the prayers that many of us have wanted wellness for such a long time. but, as with many things, the con's started appearing.
these things should be told-good or bad-in order for someone making the decision of getting treated. when i went, there were no bad things that were being reported. you either got better or stayed the same basically. BUT, we were not hearing of anyone actually getting worse afterwards. especially cases like dania's or rici's. myself, i got an instantly numb leg out of it and i feel i have deterioted at a faster rate. had no improvement. and stay concerned about vein damage.
for other's it is the yellow brick road they were looking for.
all in all i feel this is a great site to get info. about ccsvi. definitely ccsvi has brought new life to the cause and treatments of ms "and other health problems". with more research and things are moving faster but not fast enough for some of us, ccsvi has taken the symptoms they named ms out of the box that had become stagnant following the route and "theory" for too many yrs. that ms was all about autoimmune and should be treated as such. makeing drug co.'s richer and richer while patients became sicker and sicker.
bottom line, look at the pro's and con's and proceed with caution if that's what you want. or wait until more is known. had i known then what i know today, i would have definitely waited.
no fighting to all this. this is a discussion board. the good and bad pro's and con's.
i feel dania and some others has a result from the ccsvi treatment that has to be told. I DON'T SEE IT AS BASHING CCSVI THE CON'S OF CCSVI ALL HAS TO BE DEALT TOO. THE RESULTS THEY HAD ARE PRETTY SCAREY. but time and research hopefully will address these things. in the meantime, everyone has their own mind and will make their own choices.
