risks of stenting procedure

I'm going to Poland for doppler/MRV/the procedure the 2nd week of December. At least I WAS going. Now I have some doubts because my ex-partner (a pathologist) thinks it's dangerous.

He asked me if there are surgeons stand-by if something goes wrong during the operation and the patient needs an emergency operation.

Does anyone here know this? How safe is this procedure?

FTY720 (Fingolimod) &

Hey all,

I was doing some research on Fingolimod when I stumbled onto something I thought may be related to the discussions we are having here. Fingolimod is a sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1-P) receptor modulator and has been shown to reduce relapses and disability progression. When I googled "sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1-P) receptor modulators," the research article below popped up. In it, the research shows that S1-P significantly attenuates "vascular barrier dysfunction." I have a limited understanding ...

CCSVI and change of seasons

Would change of seasons affect someone with CCSVI?

Everytime the seasons change, I feel horrible. I have been so dizzy and nausious the past 4 days, it's very miserable. I thought I had a flu or cold at first, but no fever or or other symptoms. Besides this is how my relapses often start.

There is so much information here and I have probably absorbed about 50% of it. it's overwhelming for me. ...

Hi everybody,

I thought you might be interested that Erika is now in the hospital in Katowice.
Rici talked to her just now and posted it in the German speaking forum.

Tomorrow they will do a MRI in Zabzre.
Maybe she will have the operation in the afternoon.

Keep my fingers cross for her.
