Tips and Cautions

Here is a word of caution regarding getting local follow-up if you are going to be liberated internationally:
CTV story. What really ticks me off is that there would be medical "professionals" who would refuse to do follow-up on Canadians who have gone abroad for treatment.  I would like to hear stories about that because, for now, until we can convince the Canadian medical system to start offering MSers the possibility of opening clogged veins at home, we have to travel.  Any doctor who is refusing to provide follow-up on the grounds that they have been treated abroad is acting unethically and should be reported to the profession.  Of course, it's also unethical to refuse treatment for a venous condition just because the patient has MS, as well, but let's deal with each of these issues separately... there's already a proposed legal challenge regarding not allowing people to be treated just because they have MS.
