I believe that all MS patients put all their faith and hopes in the drugs they have been administered for years: only when improvements in their condition failed to materialise the placebo effect revealed itself as non-existent
Right on Gici!
There is also a placebo effect on some doctors--my doctor seemed blinded to my progression he was so distracted by how great my MRI looked to him, I have no atrophy, a lovely full corpus callosum, no new lesions no enhancement--I was doing wonderfully well!!
...except I had gone from jogging to using a cane over those years.
It is too soon for me personally to say with certainty things are very different with my stents, I have had so many complications that it is hard to see what is what, but I do SEEM better. I'll be glad when they have defined and outlined a way via MRI, SWI MRI, or perhaps even looking at the CSF to check for OCB to show improvement that is objective from every perspective.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
