I think you are right about how many so far Jeff (the 5th) me (the 18th) pkboo, Chris and you....and now Mark. Four more until enough for the paper if he stays with an earlier comment to publish 10 or 11 results.
think getting tested is a pretty harmless thing to do (if you have insurance) I am not sure about the surgery yet though, that is a big decision
A person can sure sit on their MRV results and think it over no reason why not. I think a lot of people get an MRI of their knee then think that over too before jumping in.
If an MRV looked like the twisted vein at the bottom of Dr Zamboni's dec 08 paper though, I think that'd be pretty important to a person's decision...
As it is before we have certain acceptance by the neuro community and before a person has even had an MRV or anything, it is all a really vague concept that is kind of theoretical and it feels like a too big committment to go along with it.
I already had dopplers so it has crossed from theory to reality in my body. I want the thing fixed, thank God for Dr Dake! it is a different mental place.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
