Mangio, I fully understand your thoughts...as if anyone was skeptical before, it was me.mangio wrote:Ozarkcanoer,
After reading some posts yesterday I became quite worried about
some of the findings being reported. I wonder if the people being
tested at various locations are of such different backgrounds that
this could be altering some of the results? Just thinking aloud...txs
But when thinking this, do you mean those who perform the tests - or those that are tested?
The day I was there to get my eco-color-doppler test at Simka's place, there was me, a UK and a US person. We all got CCSVI diagnosed. So I would say we had geographical different backgrounds. It's just that the doctor who did the test, knew how and where to search, due to his lengthy experience on so many doppler exams on MS patients already (finding the problem mostly in similar locations).
And believe me: I went in that room expecting he would not find anything, as my symptoms are mild... I went to Poland since simply needed to know if all this MS-CCSVI story was true! And I only believed it after tested on myself...
I also saw it with my own eyes. Oh well, was not soo easy to see the "spaghetti between the macaroni" (loved that expression ) , but had studied Zamboni's doppler pictures before. So understood what the red artery and blue jugular signals meant when Simka explained to me (stopping the screen). He only explained to me because I asked if could see pictures. He understood I was skeptical and was very cooperative to show/explain. Find me another doctor like this!
