I hope you don't mind my asking but did you two get to know each other because of your MS or you were both diagnosed with MS afterward?

I've decided to not go for stents, because I believe there will be venous stents on the market within the next five years. Also I'm okay with travelling twice if need be to get angioplasty a second time inthe event of restenosis...but then I'm expecting to travel to NY and have the procedure covered by insurance, so those are different circumstances.
Lots of people seem very happy with their stents, so it's probably not a bad decision, I'm just cautious because we don't know the long-term prognosis of those stents and because, once in, they're in permanently. The neck has lots of flex in it so it puts the stent under a lot of stress over time. I think the Dr. Sclafani index thread has a link to what he's had to say about stents, which is always worth reading.
