I'm early, but travel advice...

Whats the cheapest airport to fly in to, how long should I plan on staying, should I rent a car, and how about a hotel? I think I read somewhere that the Sheraton (with the Staford rate) was the best hotel to stay at.
My wife will probably be coming with me. She has a week off work in February, I'm thinking of trying to schedule then. I think too much though, it keeps going ...

NIH getting a portion of the 5 billion for medical research.

Wonder how hard it would be to divert a wee bit of that over to the CCSVI paradigm....

Gotta be some way to get a couple 2 or 20 million of that, come on it's peanuts! ... _obama_nih

Altogether, the stimulus bill included $10 billion for NIH. More than $1 billion of it would be directed to work on genetic research that could identify the causes and cures ...

Wow! We do have close dates. Is your Oct.19 procedure am or pm?
I don't have my times yet. except procedure is Oct. 20, PM.

Glad you have friends and family in the area.

We receive the test results and consultation on the same day as Radiology/Testing, is that correct? Otherwise, there is no procedure indicated?
Still learning, Rose

CCSVI and pain?

Hi all. I am pretty new to this forum and have been reading about CCSVI with interest. I don't really understand it very well, and I haven't been able to read through everyone's posts, but I did print off some of the research to give to my neuro when I see him in 2 weeks. I'm not sure how receptive he will be but I'll give it a try.

Today, I saw my pain management ...

Surgery complication that I had - verified by another

Well I have to post about my shoulder you've all heard me bitching about. With Marie's help :wink: , I finally thought it worthy of being checked out and I am going to write about it here. I was hesitant at first because I figured this would be pile on fodder, shell game for Bob to say it's not a good idea because there are some potential ...

Tracking Results

I've seen some discussion on tracking results. The text based patient logs are great for those of us who are going to do this procedure and need to know every detail. But for trying to show results to the outside world, a picture that sums up 10, 15, 20 years of MS history and interventions is helpful.

Here is my homemade version, pegged to EDSS scale

Then ...

How much for CCSVI treatment - Dr. Dake or Dr. Simka?

I am really convinced by CCSVI.

I doubt my neuro is going to be much enthused about it and I am considering just pushing ahead and travelling for the investigations and possible stents needed.

How much does it generally cost for the full investigations & treatment? Ireland is in the EU so not sure if that has any relevance.

Please feel free to PM me if you'd prefer not to post publically. Any replies ...

YA! He laughed that this might be new and hard to radiologist to make but he was convinced that it is possible.

vaccination problems

I was reading this story and wondered if the girl's hidden medical problem was something like reflux going on. Of course, I don't actually know what her condition was, but considering the idea of CCSVI combined with vaccines, it seems to be a bad idea to me...
