I was liberated four days ago. My only problem is that I have to "wall walk". If I go out, I use a scooter. That's been the case for over five years.
Several times within those five years, for a few minutes, I could walk perfectly! And as quickly as it came, it left. Never figured out what caused it. So I hoped that the liberation treatment would finally bring that back for good. But so far, no improvement in walking.
While I was on the table for the procedure, suddenly everything got just a little sharper, that "HD effect" that folks talk about. I never thought I had cognitive problems. I asked the doctor if the seditive had worn off, but he just smiled and said that he was opening blockages.
So far, the only other change is that my feet are no longer that festive shade of purple. Actually, they are purple every morning when I wake up, but within about an hour, they match the rest of me.
My right IJV was fine, but my left just disintegrated into little collateral veins and there was nothing the doctor could do. My azygous was ballooned four or five times.
If there are no changes within a few months, I intend to ask about another venagram. It seems that the scanning techniques and tools the doctors use are changing rapidly as they share knowledge. Even if you have not restenosed, your doctor could not fix a problem that he couldn't find (like stuck valves or flaps).
