Im not sure if people remember but in June i had a negative doppler and negative catheter venogram, the dr said my veins were fine wih NO ccsvi,
A few days later i sent dr Sclafani my images and he said the IJV look narrow as they enter the chest and a possible azygos stenosis
i also sent my images to dr beelen in Belguim and Dr Vogl in Germany, they both commented on jugular stenosis.
So i recently got liberated, balloon angio on each IJV, they were ballooned twice each IJV and seemed to stay open, this was yesterday,
In the venogram report it says:
the right IJV was 30-40% narrowed with disturbed outflow , the left IJV was 40-50% narrowed at he valve level. The azygos was without significant hemodynamic stenosis.
Also the MRV results said:
The Right IJV is constricted between the transverse process of the atlas vertebra and the digastric muscle. On the left side significant compression of the IJV in the same mechanism, however the lumen of the vessel is visable on he entire length.
the left and right ijv were ballooned he same area = around the collar bone - looking at the images the balloon covered from 1.75" above the collar bone down to 0.75" below the collar bone = approx 2.5" balloon
- my left leg is weaker than the right leg
after the procedure i asked he doctor if there was now no stenosis now, but she said there is a little bit still, but the blood flow is normal now, and thats whats important.
- i had to stay lying down for 12 hours
i have been told to take a baby aspirin 75mg every morning for 6 months.
any opinions on why i have seen no changes? - does this happen?
i know its only been 24 hours since liberation but i see no changes and this bothers me as everyone else seems to see big improvements immediately.
or is it because as my IJVs are only 30-50% stenosed, i should expect no/litle improvements?
how long should i wait until i accept that i wont improve?
thank you for all replies
