Niagara Falls Man Dies From Complications

A Niagara Falls resident died after complications from MS surgery  Read the artice here.

My belief is that had he not needed to return to Costa Rica, due to  post op complicatons, he might have lived.

We need to have this surgery available in  Canada, as well as post op care .

I think the thing irritating me the most is the lack of support for even doing trials. So ok, the MS societies don't want to condone the procedures because they are "unproven", I get that. But they don't want to fund an attempt to prove or disprove [is that a word] them? Oh. Wait. I get it. If they prove this procedure has the potential to help people with MS . . . and maybe reduce or do away with the needs for current medicines . . . the pharmaceutical companies will lose revenue, and we can't let that happen. Can we?

Hi! Anne I agree I am fed up with the wishy washy approach to this.
