I am the caregiver to my Dear wife who was D/X with RRMS two months ago. She is 2.5 on EDSS. Age 47, and healthy, exercises extensively. taking Copaxone.
Discovered this wonderful site last weekend.
Some have asked about CCSVI -MRv and MRA. We live in Niagara Penninsula. We are having CCSVI test done next Monday in Buffalo [cost 900.00 US]
We are working through Don/Bev Hamilton -Smith who are based in Canada They require a requisition from your GP, Neurologist, or Specialist. [Fax number is 905-615-7741, to set up app't---probably within week] For more information you can call Don or Bev at 905-615-4470.
Monday Nov 30th, We have been to hospital today for MRV and MRA. Thanks to adivice we received last eve. It is important to specify MRV according to Dr.Zamboni protocol.
My Dear wife [patient] has to go back next week for further MRV. We in some respects, consider ourselves first patients, however clearly don't mind trying to do our bit for MS.
Sure hopes this helps a little bit.
