I suppose those are good news. Now that the problem has been found it can be solved. Do you have already a place to perform the surgery? While I was looking for one, I found an arabian association of interventional radiology

But I don't have more info.

Good luck

Here in Europe the price is around 5000 euros. I suppose is more or less the same price. We are trying to find a doctor in our home country so that our social insurace covers at least part of the price.

So am I understanding correctly that you got the test done in Saudi Arabia? If so, this is terrific news! You might want to share the details of who did it if you are permitted to.
