Hi Jeff You can also try to go through Surgical Tourism of Canada and go to India -- there is a first group of 8 Canadians there this week for treatment -- and based on their results, the CEO at Surgical Tourism has said they will start booking more surgeries. The all-inclusive price tag is around $25K CAD but that's for you and a caregiver who can take care of you. You can find out more at http://www.surgicaltourism.ca or you can read about some of the the people going to India at my blog at http://for-greet.squarespace.com.
Regarding Poland, I've heard that the GREAT Dr. Simka is booked until the end of 2011, but that may just be rumour. Two Canadians were there - two brothers - this past week and they are doing REALLY WELL -- see http://evanthornton.wordpress.com/2010/03/26/back-from-surgery to find out more about their experiences, but the long and the short of it is it was worth the $10K they each paid for the operations. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and hope you join CCSVI groups on Facebook or start to be radical about this yourself.
