OK, so now I have some news from my Vasc Surgeon friend..........
In a very emotional phone call he told me that both he and his Interventional Radiologist friend he told me that he could see both pathological veins and the stenosis on the left side. Sadly, despite much back and forth with hospital management he can't do the op for me. They won't sanction anything that isn't OK'd by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence UK).
So I'll be interested to see how the IR's in the UK find a way around this - the scans, yes but Liberation, I don't know. If one of them finds a way that will be amazing!!!!
He has researched Dr Simka and his results/reports and he says that if he was me he would go no problem.
So, roll on my appt on the 28th March.
