Today, it was the first procedure/surgery in Poland made by Dr. Simka and his team. Of course, successful!

My report from Poland: Oct. 20th and 21st.
I went to see Rici to this hospital:
Niepubliczny Zakład Opieki Zdrowotnej EuroMedic; Oddział chirurgii naczyniowej; ul. Głowackiego 10; 40-052 Katowice

It was only 1 minute walking from my hotel Franz Josef. I hope to find the web page soon. There are more EuroMedics in Poland.
The building is dark yellow and looks old.

Rici was 24 hours after the procedure. He could walk normally, just with one cane. He was in very good mood, he did not have any pain.
His procedure: it took one hour, 2 doctors were there, Dr. Ludyga was performing it, Rici had NO pain during the procedure, they did it directly on neck - it means he had only three very small points after a needle on his neck - I saw it, they "injected" one stent into his left jugular vein.
They could not enter from the femoral last week, because the vein was so narrow/blocked in his neck area.

He also got a catheter to be able to urinate, because he must "run" often.
When I was there he did not have the catheter anymore. He must inject Clexane every day for two months. The needle is only 1 cm long and thin like a hair.
He takes no interferon, no Copaxone, no Tysabri. He still must take Baclofen.
He told me about his first improvement: he can straight his finger on his left hand after long time without any problems. He posts about more improvements on csvi - german part. He does not speak English.
I told him about LDN, he wants to start with it.
He had big problems with Avonex as well as with Fingolimod.

The hospital inside is very modern and new. I saw such hospital only in Vancouver, in Italy and in Austria.

Rici does not have attacks, so I think he is SPMS. He does not go to see any neuro anymore because of MS, because he is very dissapointed.
I think he is over 50, but I am not sure.

Next day, Oct. 21st I had my MRV done. Dr. Simka was so nice and he drove me to the town Zabrze. A Czech doctor had an MR training there. He did not want to tell me his name. I expect surprise.
My MRV took 50 minutes without the contrast injection. I have the CD, but I do not have the results. Doctors in Poland need time for it of course.

I had my regular MRI of my brain and spine yesterday.
Any questions?

Oh, I almost forgot an imortant name.
The radiologist in Zabrze, in Poland is Dr. Hartl.
He was also very nice.

Erika, how interesting! And how wonderful of Dr. Simka. Congratulations on the huge progress you have made.
Just curious if you have any thoughts on why that doctor didn't want to tell you his name - - was he not supposed to be doing it? did he not want it posted online?
And, depending upon what Dr. Simka sees, what are you thinking will be possible regarding an intervention given the bureaucratic constraints you have been dealing with?

We just returned from Poland. Same doctors. Same excellent results. the op was done 12/29/09. Ruth is like a new person. The extreme fatigue is gone, constant headaches gone, her vision is improved and she sleeping deeper and much better. The last ten years were particularly bad as her syptoms were worsening. World class care in Poland. Our total cost first class all the way was under $25,000.

SSG,

Do you mind if I ask what kind of venous abnormalities were discovered ?
