Apologies for asking questions that might be covered in this thread, but it is a little long..
First off, thanks to Cheerleader for raising the profile of CCSVI. For a long time, since she first mentioned the theory on thisisms, I did my best to ignore it because I have a huge aversion to cardiac catheters following a very unpleasant study of my heart after I was getting tachycardia many years ago. It involved electric shocks to my left ventricle of increasing strength. It was really horrendous. It gave me a fear of all things medical. My heart sank when I first read about CCSVI and the possibility that I might one day go through it.. It will be very difficult for me but I answered another user, Marta's, request for Dr Simka's mail, I looked up the the email address and decided that I should email him too.
Some questions. Poland will be a bit tricky for me, like anywhere would, because I'm in a wheelchair. Are there any accessible hotels that anyone knows of? On the other hand it will be lovely to visit, my girlfriend will accompany me so I won't be alone, and I speak Russian which may come in handy as I understand a few Polish words and older Poles speak Russian too I think.
My other question is, and I really ought to know this for sure after reading so many posts in this forum, but Dr Simka uses stents and not angioplasty, right?
Oh, and Dr Simka must have quite a waiting list?
