Other recently stented man kiboshes, stands on chair

“Warm face, warm ‘ands, warm feet,
Aow, wouldn’t it be loverly?”

Well, with respect to Alfred Doolittle, it is lovely, and all the more welcome in a climate like Manitoba’s, too, I suspect.

Last night my brother spoke of his newly-warmed extremities, and much else besides, to an audience in Winnipeg; Melissa Martin of the Free Press does a good job of capturing the mood of the room in this piece from their online edition.

    Good for you Duncan, I am very proud of you and please do not stop advocating for this. In Ottawa on May 5th we are marching on parliment Hill in the hopes they are listening to what WE want, this is our body and we choose what we want to do with it. Certain prominent naysayers are just lining their pockets with cash from the pharmaceutical companies. Well, guess what — it is our choice, if it works that’s great, and if not it’s ok we deal with it but do not take away the chance for us to try it period!!!

    Good for you Duncan.I know you’ll see much improvement over time..Lucky you!!I had an ultrasound done and it showed both jugulars had a blackage and 2 abnormalities would be needed to determine CCSVI..I’m at a stand still with this!!Very confused as to go for an MRV in Montreal or not.Could you please send me your input as to wheather I should persue it or not?Your words I could really use..I wish you all the best on your new journey!!((HUGS))

      Leslie –
      With the Ultrasound findings and good pictures from an MRV confirming them, you might be in a very good position to get a referral to an IR or Vascular surgeons about possible treatment.
      On the other hand treatment options in Canada seem narrow to non-existent *at the moment*.
      Really what I’d say to anyone with MS is get on all the waiting lists of reputable medicos possible, try to make contact with every IR or Vascular Surgeon in your area.
      And make the loudest noise you can to try to get this available in Canada.
      Thanks for the good wishes – but for now I am one of the lucky ones. But I wish the best of luck to you.
