Happy New Year

I am convinced that this year will prove that venous obstruction is in some way related to the symptoms and deterioration of multiple sclerosis.  CCSVI will continue to be a big part of the news in 2011.

Yesterday was 4 weeks since my procedure in Brooklyn, NY and although I don't have any major improvements in my walking ability, my energy level has greatly improved.  My balance is also much better.  I noticed this when I'm in the shower or when I pull a sweater over my head and don't have to hold on.  One thing that is really bothering me is a very sore lower back.  This is something that I have struggled with for quite some time and it sort of comes and goes but it has been pretty constant the last 2-3 weeks. 

I will continue to keep you updated!
