This sounds like an issue of durability, or possibly an issue of complications, if there was intimal hyperplasia or clotting going on. I don't think we have an answer for durability yet. Maybe high pressure balloons. Maybe stents, in some cases, but that opens the door to in-stent restenosis.
Thanks for sharing your experience, it's really interesting to hear from those who have tried both CCSVI treatment and stem cells. I expect both treatments to continue improving as they are researched.
The first 2 times, I didn't have any stents, but my jugulars kept restenosed. The 3rd time, I got 1 stent in 1 jugular and the 4th in the other one. But it kept clotting on different part of the jugulars, not on the stent.
But so far today, I'm good, I haven't worsen for sure. One thing that I am certain is since I moved to Thailand, with lots of sun and higher temperature, I am a lot better than when I was in France where it was pretty cold.
So, since 1 year, I am focusing on improving the damages that I have, and I can say that, it takes time but I am improving and still no relapses. But, for sure for me, staying in a warm country helps a lot, cold is not good. I think that in about 6 months, I will do an MRI, see if I have less white spots.
