One question I have, which I may have missed in previous posts, is whether the testing and the angioplasty/stent procedures are done in the same city, ie Katowice I am scheduled for August, and your experience is invaluable...

dx'd 1996 SPMS EDSS 7.5
MRV is done in Zabrze - it is town close to Katowice about 20 minutes by Taxi - I paid 80 Zloty.
The procedure is made in another hospital in Katowice.

if you look here:katowice airport destinations map you can see all the destinations to and from Katowice. Hope it helps a bit.

If you consider to fly from overseas to Frankfurt don't get confused about Frankfurt and Frankfurt/Hahn. Take Frankfurt. Because Frankfurt/Hahn is a smaller commercial airport located about 100 km (62 mi) from Frankfurt city.

There are direct flights from Canada to Frankfurt, Germany with Lufthansa and to Amsterdam, Netherlands with KLM. Lufthansa and KLM are, in my opinion, the two most reliable airlines. For those who travel in the busy summer season, I would recommend to check out direct transatlantic charter flights to Dusseldorf or Munich, Germany. It’s considerably cheaper. Connecting flights are available from all these destinations throughout Europe.
This really helps Guest. I cant wait.Have you had procedure done yet? You feel better and did they find abnormality?
Off to work and coffee!!

Best Wishes!
