I think it's possible, especially if you had minor changes rather than absolutely no changes. I had some obvious improvements right away, but then also experienced gradual improvements that caught me by surprise later on. The immediate improvements might be the result of improved blood flow and oxygenation, the gradual improvements the result of neurological healing due to those better conditions over time. If you don't hear from anyone here, you can ask at CCSVI Locator or facebook too. We used to talk about people having more gradual improvements; they were in Dr. Siskin's middle third (one third with moderate or wow improvements, one third with mild improvements, and one third without improvements). How many veins did you have treated? Do you know how badly blocked they were? Balance is a common one to improve after CCSVI treatment, and so is heat intolerance. Are you feeling rested and recovered from the procedure and travel itself? Health and healing wishes....
dania, that's a very good question, and i agree that's not good odds. the repeats come at a cost of more chance of intimal hyperplasia and damage. the physical damage and also the financial damage. some had to scurry to get the finances together for the first teatment. i'd be willing to bet there are quite a few in trouble and don't know what shape their veins are now in and even if they know can't do much about it because of finances.
Procedure done 4 weeks ago in Australia. IR said one third restenosed - in my language that's 2 thirds didn't ! After 4 hours: rush of warmth to lower legs and feet - feeling alive rather than lead-like After 3 days: noticed colour in thighs - healthy look in the top half has since been commented on Sensing slow improvement in balance / stability Expectations realistic but excitement is high
