Just a quick update. I had my second doppler ultrasound done this evening and my veins are completely normal! I made the doctor scan his own neck just so I could compare mine with his! My veinous valves were both not working before the procedure but now they were flapping away and very quickly I might add.
I met some more people today at the clinic who were having the procedure done on Saturday. One other Canadian who was diagnosed with CCSVI right before my eyes (the doctor also called me in so I could compare my normal scan to a scan that was abnormal). There were a few Saudi people also coming in for a doppler scan and to be diagnosed with CCSVI. They were all very pleasant, hopeful, and optimistic. It was such a pleasure to speak with these people and to learn about their culture and their medical system. What an amazing experience this has been. We also shared a cab this evening with the new Canadian who recently came here for the procedure on Saturday and we had such a blast with the cab driver. He cranked up some English tunes and the recently diagnosed CCSVI Canadian's sister started dancing in the car (and she is also blonde)! The driver started to hit on her and it was so beyond funny as she tried to explain to him that her husband was arriving the next day. These are moments I will never forget!
As for improvements with symptoms: My eyes are a different color...really!; I don't feel as fatigued, my neck doesn't hurt as much, and my feet are still pink! The other Canadian has reported an increased sense of balance and improved energy. The person from Greece also has reported an increase in energy. The procedure was successful for all three of us who were treated yesterday in the sense that the veins remain open and functional.
I did ask the doctor if he had noticed any correlation between very twisted veins and the symptoms associated with MS and he said there is no correlation in any regard. He gave numerous examples of others such as myself with beginning stages of MS and extremely twisted veins. The doctors here are so beyond patient, understanding, kind, and attentive. I sincerely thank them for all of their time and generosity shown towards me and my husband. Thank-you!
I look forward to my continued improvements and I so long to be home safe with my sweet baby girl.
