For those of you who want a quick report: I have been REliberated!
It turns out that I had significantly restenosed from my first procedure 5 months ago.
I have begun to see improvements almost immediately. Most importantly, my balance and therefore my walking are MUCH BETTER. And it has only been 2 days!
We now believe that I began restenosing about 3 weeks after the first procedure. I was treated by a different doctor this time who has a lot of experience. If you recall, I was the first person treated at Georgetown. Although my doctor may be a fine surgeon, we now know that this procedure is like nothing these doctors have ever done before.
My current doctor was more aggressive that the first, so I am hopeful that this treatment will last much longer. I chose not to stent, so we'll have to wait and see!
Now, if you want more info please check out my blog. I also have detailed notes from the Symposium, too.
