Have ppms for 10 years live inMelbourne.CCSVI MY STORYI discovered CCSVI known as ‘liberation treatment’ last year and I believed it would be my cure to rid MS. I found so many positive stories and couldn’t believe how active they were straight after their procedure.CSVI (Chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency) is a chronic problem where blood from the brain and spine has trouble getting back to the heart. It’s caused by stenosis, a narrowing in the veins that drain the spine and brain.First step was to have a Doppler ultrasound of my neck. Usually people don’t want to have negative results but I was hoping to find narrowing of my veins and they did. Next step was to undergo balloon angioplasty – balloon dilation to widen vessels to narrowed by stenosis or occlusions as I was told by the interventional radiologist‘I was an ideal candidate for this procedure’. I was so excited, I couldn’t sleep at night. I had to occupy my mind, so I was cleaning. Finally my procedure date was set and I couldn’t wait to be stenosis free. I left the private hospital with aspirin for 21 days and waited for results.I felt completely “normal” within a few hours of the procedure with no immediate changes. I have no improvements still tingling and weakness in my right weak leg, find it difficult to walk comfortably. It’s possible that the balloon angioplasty performed on me was only temporarily effective, and soon after treatment my veins reverted to their previous condition.I don’t believe everything that I read anymore because it doesn’t apply to everyone. This is hard to accept, as we don’t have many choices. CCSVI is an easy concept to understand but difficult to treat and at least I have a clean house afterall! I still keep searching tried Fampyra drug also and didn’t work either.Abx? we will see.
