I will be there during first week of March.
Perhaps you could be in contact with Dr. Cooperberg
clearly if he's already here I'm too slow.

He did the test ling down. I asked him o repeat it sitting up, and he did. He founf that my jugular did not collapse upon sitting up (veins should collapse when sitting up), and he found an extra valve in my vein. He will send it to Dr. Simka and ask an opinion.
To me, it is obvious that there must be a blockage below the dilated vein area...I go for the MRV in an hour or so...
I don't know. They were very professional, and I could see everything, but now have more questions than answers.

Unfortunately no specific stenosis or occlusion could be seen, but due to the restricted flow they could not exclude the fact that one may exist. It is of particular interest that at the junction where Dr. Simka places his stents is where my husband had particularly weak flow.
We are now wondering what our next step should be.
Looking for Answers,
