When I spoke with him on May 16th he had already performed procedures on 15 MS patients. By the time they get to me, that nu...

ARGH!!!!!
Don't lose heart. The trickle will become a stream and the stream will become a river and the river will become a flood and the flood will drown a few neurologists, pharmaceutical companies and MS Societies. Your turn will come.

Thought the following from Dr. Siskin might help calm everyone's nerves. He did not get to where he is at by being disorganized. He clearly understands our anxiety and everyone at his clinic is working hard for us. Have faith. I have to tell you that we are very compulsive about keeping a list in th...

I Have A Date!!

Just got the second call. I have been scheduled for July 12th!!

For those who were wondering about how bmk1234 got such an early date (June 16th) I believe it was due to a cancellation.

Now please excuse me while I go cash in my frequent flier miles... :D

For us hot-heads, that is a question to which we already know the answer! :wink:

Zamboni did a good job of classifying the stuff he saw in his first study. Table III breaks down the different issues he found in his 65 MS patients. About 46% had valve issues. Click on the link to see the table:
