It's no sweat Joan, I understand now.
Thanks again for bringing his "gaffe" to his attention. Maybe now at least one neuro knows not to mess.
cah - What a disgrace about the German MS society! Well, as I've read here time and time again though, it wasn't going to be easy in the beginning to gain the respect that this study deserves, so I think that we are taking our hits without shame or defeat and forging forward with our knowledge and hunger for change. It will happen.
Lora - Thank you for sending the right information over. I'm sure that it will be helpful, if he actually takes the time to read it. Let me know what he says!
John - Thank you for your e-mail as well. I'm happy to have his words brought back to his attention so that he knows that we aren't all dummies in the audience, intimidated by doctors.
ozark and MSmama - I agree wholeheartedly that it is not in a doctors' best interest to take the work of other noted researchers or doctors and misrepresent their findings. I have no doubt that Dr. Khan is a great at what he does, but either needs to get all the facts straight before adding them to his speech or just not even try to talk about it at all. I am not interested in ruining anyone's reputation, I am just interested in making sure that the poor people with MS like me are not disillusioned. They have a right to the facts about CCSVI, seeing that when you look around the room, each one of them very likely have stenosed veins. That is significant any way you want to look at it!
