May-Thurner diagnosis during CCSVI procedure

Can anyone else relate to this topic? I had my first CCSVI procedure last week and was diagnosed with May-Thurner with a 95% compression.

Interesting topic. Spasticity in my legs is by far my worse symptom. I can't wait to be able to afford Liberation in the hope that I will get some amount of relief from it.

Thanks for the replies. They are much appreciated. I am so looking forward to heading down to CA later this year ,from Vancouver, BC.
Right now we are prepping our house to go on the market. It's really the only way we can afford this but we do want to move anyway.

I`m a bit confused about the procedure at Pac Int. It looks like they will perform an MRV BUT still go ahead with treatment even if it is inconclusive. I was watching a video posted today on youtube by a lady who had been treated at another clinic (American Access center) and she said MRV didn`t sho...

Thank you for the detailed account of your procedure and I'm sorry to hear about the miserable nurse. I am hoping to go to their clinic later this year. I'm quite worried about the pain but I'll handle it I guess (I'm a chicken) but am determined to see if I can get rid of my cold feet! Here's to co...

After attending the meeting in Vancouver on Tuesday evening I feel very confident in Dr Hewett and his clinic. I was thinking of going to Mexico but I am now thinking I may go there instead. This is all when i can afford it of course.

I was just made aware of the California clinic today. I live near Vancouver, Canada and would definitely consider it as an option due to it's closer proximity that many other places. I'm hoping that more people who have been treated there will jump in to share their experience :)

Can you give any tips on which areas of your neck you did the massage? I'd like to give it a try as I am a long way financially from being able to get the treatment although I am on the waitlist in Poland.
Thanks so much :)

Newbie too !

Hi there
I just joined tonight after reading the forums for a while. I am a 47 yr old female and have RRMS, diagnosed in 2008. I am very inspired by all the CCSVI stories and do have my name on the waiting list for Poland.
Hoping to learn lots more from fellow sufferers here.
Take care
