First liberation procedure in UK

I am back home following venogram and bilateral balloon dilatation of the jugular veins at 2 pm.
I feel well, my back is less stiff, my movements are quicker and my right leg feels already more powerful.
I am not on any blood thinners.
The procedure was carried out at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast by the radiologist Dr Anton Collins while I was under the care of the vascular surgeon Mr Robin Baker.
All the team were extremely excited and believe in Zamboni's theory.
I sincerely hope that today represented a breakthrough and that many patients will benefit in Northern Ireland. The ice has been broken: I look forward to a bright future for MS sufferers.
Thank you all for the good wishes,
GiCi
