John and I are wondering why he could not have this procedure done as elective? He paid the cash upfront for it and it should be his choice to do this. It is not like he submitted to insurance and they are denying payment.
I do understand on your end that the hospital is saying NO you can't do this right now. I just wondered from someone paying cash and electing to do this perspective.
And where am I going with this . . . I'm not sure except that I wonder why, if a person presents with this, why wouldn't they be able to go ahead and have a venogram/procedure -- who cares about the MS label?
my apologies doc, messenger was the wrong choice of words. what i meant was because they have basically made you put the procedure on hold for the time being you can only answer questions.
Doctor: If the end result of veins flow insufficiency is deposit of iron (which trigger the auto-immune reaction I guess); why cant we first detect high level of iron in the likely places and correlate with the venous system at that location? Since stenosis might be dynamic or even difficult to discern sometimes throughout Doppler/MRx.
Thank you for your continuous help and for your time
IT was the amount of patients who could undergo neurological exams that limited our procedures.
