My right jug is twice as wide as my left. Normal? Common?

My right jug is twice as wide as my left. Normal? Common?

Unfortunately that's the only finding from the "non-CCSVI-trained" venous ultrasound today.

Will see what the venography on Wednesday will show. Though I was prepared to "look stupid" in the eyes of the local doctor, so here I am :oops:

Or is your left jug half the size of the right? :) I'm only half kidding.. what did the doctor say about the results?

Good luck on the MRV - I have my ultrasound tomorrow at the local. Keeping fingers crossed for abnormal results.

Common to have a disparity in size. My right was very noticeably larger than the left. Good luck on your MRV, and remember, few if any (at least that I am aware of) Stanford patients had a + ultrasound.... Me included, so take heart! :)

Thank you for the words of encouragement Mark! Next time I am in Los Angeles, can I take you out for lunch? With your wife and kids and my husband? I've never met a "liberated" person before :)

I hope you people know that you are our heroes...
