Hello from Gatineau (Québec)

Postby sonia52 » Wed Nov 25, 2009 8:15 pm

Hi TIMS,

My name is Sonia. I'm a French Canadian living in Gatineau, not far from Ottawa in Canada. Please excuse my English, I never write in this language.

I've been diagnosed with MS in June 1980. I still have the RRMS type of the disease. I listened to CTV W5 program last Friday. I think that CCSVI is the best piece of news I've ever heard, at least since 1980. I had a few questions to ask, so I came here to find people to speak with.

Thanks to those who set up this great forum!

Thanks guys. Jimmylegs, it surely was a nice place to live off blvd Alexandre-Taché. I used to go to the bike path along the river. That bike path is the place where we have MS Walk every year at the end of April.

I was at the GENERAL hospital during the 80's, but I'm back at the Gatineau clinic since 2001.

Are you at the GENERAL? My neighbour is still at the GENERAL. She called at the clinic a couple of days ago. She learned that they're not in favour of CCSVI theory, but I think it's because Dr Freedman doesn't believe in it at all.

I saw him the other day. I asked him about it and he wasn't too keen.

I suppose he has to look into it deeper but there are still questions to be asked.

One that I am curious about is that the frequency of MS tends to involve the countries further from the equator, and i am wondering why our neck blood vessels would be thinner than those closer to the equator.

Anyhow, he seems to be banking on a pharmaceutical breakthrough rather than this procedure. Even if the process did open up, I would be last on the list because I have no symptoms. For those who are affected by MS, they would have to dwell into it further, and get the treatment before I can qualify. Only deservedly so!
