To blame this tragic incident only on the Canadian doctor's is insane. Another part of the equation is this gentleman (and father) went over seas to get a procedure performed that has not been proven safe. ... Although I completely disagree with much of the medical tourism taking place at this time...

According to a Dr. on another site I go on, there is a massive difference between blood thinners and anticoagulants. Mr. Mostic was put on anti-coagulants which is a very big mistake with venous blockages.

Tyr, I understand much of what you're going through. I was undiagnosed at 28 and the issues I was having caused a break-up in a relationship with a girl I was ready to propose to. At the time I had penile hyper-sensitivity, bowel and bladder issues, fatigue, etc. Doctors told me it was chronic stres...

1eye, Your post shows my point exactly of how people are perpetuating the idea that MS is a symptom that can be treated by liberation. I think it is far too early to make that assumption and there is nowhere near enough evidence to support it. In fact, if anything, there is evidence to show that thi...

Asher, I really like your viewpoint, and I have felt for a long time that there needs to be more realistic viewpoints expressed here. There are far too many people believing that there is no MS, only CCSVI. I am not a skeptic. I believe CCSVI exists and there is a major correlation with MS. I believ...

I think if this was about the Saskatoon trial, they would have mentioned it. They definitely knew about it because it was in their response letter to me.

I have high hopes that they're referring to treatment trials.
