Re: DR GILHOOLY'S DISCUSSION ON VALVES

Is it easy for a IR or other doctor to see if your valves are an issue? What is the process to make that determination?

Re: trial

The goal is to stop the hole from being punched in the boat, but how long is that going to take you? I am all for bailing out the water while repairing the hole in the boat at the same time.

I stopped Betaseron April 2010, first CCSVI procedure late August. I stopped not because I thought that I would be cured but because with or without DMDs I had continued to slowly progress for the last 10 years.
