Fog lifts for Alberta man

I was thrilled to see this in my inbox this afternoon; a wonderful report from James Cooper of Edmonton, AB.

Hi Evan: You spoke with me a little over 5 weeks or so ago about going to Poland. I just got back Thursday night and the results have been amazing. I had the procedure done late Monday afternoon and it has been incredible since. In less than a week I almost do not have a limp any longer.  My memory is coming back. I am way more mentally sharp.  Things that seemed to confuse me before our not a problem to think through or understand now.  Its like I have come out of some sort of a fog.

It was frustrating me but I did not know how much it was affecting me until I had the procedure.  Joint  and neck pain I have dealt with for years appears to be just gone. The neurologist over there was shocked when he did my exit examination.  My weak right leg was very close in strength and mobility to my left in only two days.   When he first saw me I could barely lift the right leg off the floor by its self let alone hold it in the air.  I could stand on one leg and easily keep my balance with with either leg when he checked me over.

To say I am excited is an understatement.  Thanks for your encouragement and support. I am going to write a letter to my neurologist asking her to change my diagnosis from a MS patient to a CCSVI patient. If they contend over here that the liberation treatment is not a cure for MS, than that would indicate by my results they must have diagnosed me incorrectly with MS, or admit the two are the same.  Should be interesting.

Fantastic news James!

And in case a Holley from Calgary who has been on the Rutherford radio show is reading this, can you contact James?  In that “fog” he was talking about his misplaced your email and would like to be in touch. You can also leave word for him via a comment to this post.

Will you still love me if I’m not pathetic?

Duncan leaving Katowice: contemplating new pity-free lifestlyle?

The following is a guest post from my brother and fellow-Liberato, Duncan Thornton.

Two weeks after the procedure, I can say I certainly still have MS: I still have trouble pronouncing certain letters; I still have patches of numbness. But I didn’t want to be treated for CCSVI because I thought my MS would disappear; I wanted treatment because it seemed to offer a reasonable chance of keeping my MS from getting worse.

But for more than 20 years, my most troubling symptom has been cognitive and physical fatigue. Here’s what most days since I got back from Poland have been like:

  • Wake up, make coffee for Brenda, make breakfast for the kids
  • Do the sudoku and finish my coffee
  • Go to my office, get some work done
  • Make lunch for the kids, clean up.
  • Play with the kids
  • Get some more work done
  • Make supper, set the table, clean up after supper.
  • Go for a walk or something with the family
  • Put the kids to bed
  • Relax, do CCSVI email and web-stuff
  • Read a book for an hour
  • Go to bed.

Which is nothing special. It’s just a normal day for most people – but now it’s a normal day for me too.

So I did ask my wife if she will still love me if I’m not pathetic.

“It will take some getting used to,” she said.
