This past Monday night, I appeared on the Blogtalk Radio Internet program "CCSVI-Been There, Done That". The show featured a range of guests relating their different experiences with the CCSVI treatment procedure. The patients profiled represent a cross-section of the possible outcomes of CCSVI venoplasty, including some who saw tremendous benefit from the procedure, some who saw benefit but then restenosed, and others who saw no benefit at all. It avoids the controversy surrounding the CCSVI hypothesis itself, and puts a very human face on MS and the promise of CCSVI.
Hosted by the gracious and ever genial Amy Gurowitz, the program provides valuable patient perspectives from some who have undergone the CCSVI treatment procedure. I might be a little bit biased, as I was one of the guests, but I honestly think the program is an important listen for anyone considering CCSVI treatment. Please click the play arrow on the handy dandy interface below to listen to the show…
Edited to add: I've been getting word that some people are having trouble with the Blogtalk Radio interface, above. It works fine on my browser, but sometimes these things can be finicky. Be advised that the first minute and thirty seconds or so of the program are a commercial and then some introductory music. To play the program, you have to click on the white arrow symbol on the left side of the interface.
If the interface continues to malfunction, you can access the program directly from the Blogtalk Radio website (click here). Once on the website, scroll down until you get to the "CCSVI-Been There, Done That" section, at the bottom of which you'll find clickable buttons to play the program, along with some other options.
Sorry for the inconvenience, hopefully everyone who wants to listen to the program will be able to by either using the above gizmo, or going directly to the Blogtalk Radio website. Thanks.
