Faulty valve vs stenosis

Postby PCakes » Sat May 22, 2010 8:33 am

Hi,

Anyone out there Liberated from a faulty valve issue only, no stenosis? If so, what were your symptoms prior to Liberation and how are things now?

Thanks!

not me :)

It's a good question, maybe a search of the tracking thread might yield some answers?

Hi PCakes,
I had problems with my valves in the left jugularis. I am almost 7 months after the procedure in Katowice.
I have some improvements but I am still dizzy, my vision is as bad as before the treatment and I still have problems with heat - I see even worse for a while and together with some activity it brings my fatigue. I just have to be careful how much activity I do each day and I have to be careful with sun.

I do not know exactly what was the problem with my valve. Dr. Simka wrote "pathological valve". I had reflux as well. There was no flow.
When I had my first and so far the last follow up, Dr. Simka said the flow is still not as strong as in my right jugular but it is much better than before with zero flow.

I have less headache, I can walk faster, I do not have to push my bladder to be able to empty it, my movements are faster, I do not take sleeping pills after 16 years, I take less Carbamazepin for my nerve pain, I did not have any attack, I do not feel worse, I take only LDN, no injections no Tysabri, so yes I enjoy more improvements.

OF COURSE I am happy I had the procedure!!!

Erika, Thank you again.. thank you for sharing...I celebrate with you !!!!
I am the youngest of three sisters.. the only, so far to be scanned and diagnosed with CCSVI, faulty valve issue suspect. We all share the same symptoms with severity directly related to age. There are 2 generations behind us.. the smile of a 3 year old angel drives my familial, community and personal mission.
Things my neuro told me #6 "..this is not genetic."

I had no significant stenosis in any of the veins, but in the lower portion of the pathologic valve on the left side, I experienced significant decrease in flow.
I had a increase in flow on the right side when supine and the collateral circulation via the thyroid gland and anteior veins of the neck was noted especially on the right side.
Dr. Kostecki and team investigated the right side via the venogram and did nothing, and ballooned me 4 X on the left side - and ended up placing a stent.
Since then I have:
-warm hands and feet
-less tingling in hands and seemingly increased strength and flexibility
-less "brain fog"
-bladder control
-able to swallow better
-l'hermittes is gone
-less interupted sleep
-better balance
-less fatigue

Has only been 2 weeks and I won't really evaluate until a month has passed. Would do it again in a heatbeat.

grammastang - (Lynda) actually gave me the name - we were in Poland along with Alanbrowne and 3 others. After we got back she sent an email to the other "stentors" so I decided it was a good nickname.

:D Kate
