post angio protocol / sleeping alot!!

Postby san » Tue Sep 21, 2010 9:43 am

I am looking for help in navigating through the "recovery"process from angio... Are there any recommendations/protocol for exercise, vitamin, sleep, rest, ect..after having had angio? I had angio of the rt jugular and azygos sp? 55 % & 50% respectively on Aug.27th... Dramatic results .. severe heat intolerence gone... numbness and leg pain 80% better... Wakling much better.... The last week I have been really really tired... sleeping 11-12 hours a night.... not fatigue per se... When I am up and about I feel quite energetic...have been working out every day ...Gotten progressively more tired over the past few weeks ...Any thoughts? :?: :?: Stopped betaseron the night before procedure...
Thanks ... Sandy

Restenosis is a possibility but maybe you're just pushing yourself too hard. You mentioned working out every day. You might want to try every other day for a while. Give your body a chance to recover between workouts.

I'd pay attention to how you feel in the next week or two. Maybe restenosis, but too early to tell? I wouldn't slow down the workouts unless you felt they are harming you...go with your gut on that one! Working out usually gives a person more energy in the long run. Congrats on the dramatic results, no matter what happens, that's a good sign that this works for you!

Hi, a 'dip' is common, my docter says; I got mine after about two months.

Now I my advice is:

1. take it easy
2. take it easy
3. take it easy

Because I didn't, I am 'paying for it' now; but I have no restenosis. Had a checkup yesterday; everything okay, great flow. But I'm feeling bad. Better than before angio, but much worse than the first two months after.

You're feeling great, you think you can do anything... But: don't be a fool, you have to give your body a lot of rest. It's recovering from an operation and getting used to the new bloodflow.
I'm ready, I'm ready !

I have noticed I am MORE sleepy since the procedure. I go to sleep more easily, I sleep more deeply, but I am conscious of sleepiness much more often and more strongly. This is separate from overall levels of fatigue and energy - both better than they have been in 20+ years. In my case I assume I am more sleepy because I am more active (mentally at least) and so I need more sleep.
p.s.: hi cece!

Thanks and hi! :)

As for appetite, in a different discussion about blood sugar levels and the brain not getting the nutrients including glucose that it needs when the blood is slow and refluxing, someone posted that she went from eating six times a day pre-liberation to three times a day post-liberation. I am percolating some theories on blood glucose levels and CCSVI! Did you know that our insulin levels fluctuate more when it's hot out? It could be affecting blood glucose levels and be a factor in MS heat intolerance. I don't think it'd be the only factor, but maybe a big one? The brain needs its oxygen and its glucose to get through the day!

Holy crap, that's right. I have been hungry every half-hour (it seems) as long as I can remember. Now... I am nearly normal. Thanks for the idea.
