Wow - amazing. Results we can still only dream of but so happy for you.
Thanks guys. At the risk of sounding like a complete douchebag, but in the interest of honesty I gotta say that I am struggling with this.
Why doesn't everyone see benefits? Why did it work so well in my case? I was the skeptic. I was the nay-sayer. In fact when I first heard about the treatment back in 09 I laughed it off. I didn't want anyone screwing with anything inside my head or body if I didn't have to. Obviously I ended up changing my mind as there weren't other options that seemed half-way reasonable, and I was getting worse.
So now I dance around in this weird land where my dreams have come true yet I look back at all the others, whose boat I was sitting in just 3 months ago, and they are still drifting(for those where treatment doesn't work). It's crushing and heart-breaking at times. That's the bare honest truth of the matter, for what it's worth. I do know the pain of this disease which makes this change all the more difficult.
Tilt, i am so happy for you. You are the optimization of CCSVI outcome.
I have no proof, but a hunch: You do not have MS; You have CCSVI pure and simple If you have MS, it is a minor problem
I have said since 2009, i do not treat MS. I treat CCSVI. I have never varied from that point of view, since I treated a wallwalker who came back a few days later for followup, stood on one leg and said, in front of our whole team: "ta da!" After all the tears of joy, I remember saying (and I have never varied) : this cannot be the result of correction of MS: a chronic demyelilnating disease of unknown etiology.
You all have CCSVI but some of you have demyelinization that cannot be overcome in the short term by angioplasty of the outflow veins. Will treatment of CCSVI statistically, in large cohorts of patients, prolong time to disability (unlike, I might add Interferon beta)? We shall find out some time in the future when ccsvi is be properly studied like DMDs:as a treatment option for MS to prolong time to disability. My crystal ball suggests to me that the answers may also include Pharma focusing on how to optimize MS treatment after successful CCSVI treatment.
In the meantime, tilt' enjoy your benefits and stay vigilant to the possibility of restenosis and remind yourself that restenosis is not failure but just another hurdle.
