This is a documentation of treatment(s) for CCSVI (Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency) in Katowice, Poland @Euromedic, June, 2010.
Before I get started, a little prelude to the whole affair: the day before the treatment.
I sat and watched this kid for a long time (and tipped him heavily). It was a beautiful day in June – the day before my treatment, and I was calm, and looking forward to the morrow, wondering what it would bring. That morning had been cloudy, with just a little rain, and we had the MRV and eye examination in Zabrze. I was so lucky to have a Polish woman (from Canada) in my cohort. I learned that Zabrze is not pronounced Za-Ber-Zee, as I had thought, but Zab-zj-eh. (easier to say than it looks). She was great because she interpreted the night nurses for us. They don’t need much interpretation, but it was still good to have her there.
At 0:39 a couple walk by; the young woman with crutches. She was probably in Katowice for treatment too!
Report on Optic nerve damage.
Red is not good. OD is the right eye – in which I only had the hint of optic neuritis, and OS is the left eye, in which I have had repeated optic nerve inflammations, and was light perceptive only for almost a year.
The next day, I met this guy:
These are videos and pictures of the procedure he and his crew did on me to relieve multiple stenosis in IJVs;
1st release of dye into Right Internal Jugular Vein
second release of dye higher into Right Internal Jugular Vein
3d release of dye into Right Internal Jugular Vein
4th release of dye into Right Internal Jugular Vein
1st release of dye into left Internal Jugular Vein
1st balloon in left IJV
2nd balloon in left IJV
3d balloon in left IJV
2nd release of dye into left Internal Jugular Vein
azygos dye release
The “epicrisis” report:
shaky – not a silent movie; a short video describing spasticity and disability is CCSVI/”MS”. Taken one month before intervention – May, 2010. The spasticity is still gone nine weeks after intervention.
More to come…
