Did she do it?
we just got married - yes she did it. oh wait, you mean CCSVI surgery. LOL
she had the procedure twice. once in Germany when the whole CCSVI was new.
second one with Dr. S
Did it make a difference?
after the first, she was like a new person - walking wise, fog wise. everything.
only lasted 3 months.
the second used IVUS and showed a bone blocking the left side (thus our looking into UCC) and a 100% blocked ayzgos. she did not get the walking benefit the second time but i noticed other things (as we drove home from Dr. S, she commented about how bright and colorful the shop signs were). her mental ability is much better.
a good example of a difference i can tell you is that since her last procedure, she moved from small town Canada to Toronto. she planned a wedding by herself in the new city. not just any wedding but a wedding to rival Will and Kate. on the wedding day, the venue owner made her cry just before the event started. if this was pre-treatment, this would have triggered a major MS attack or at least would have put her in bed for a week. instead it didn't really bother her at all.
the best example. a couple months after the procedure, she woke up and had 2 full days of 100% MS symptom free. she had gone from SP back to RR and didn't use any drugs to do it. this is still a mystery to me but it gives us hope that things can get better one day.
