Congrats Cece, with all your contributions here and all, hearty congrats are in order. It's so great that they know (some of them at least) to look for these flaps, malformed valves and the like. I know when my own flap got angio'd, the symphony in my right ear went on a "muted hiatus". It still doesn't bother me unless it's really quiet. Still "virtually symptom free", leaving a tiny percentage for error there on my part, but the fatigue being gone, and staying gone ALONE made it all worth it. This summer and last proved it, big time. If I ever get my follow up vid done where I take that hike up a steep hill in 98 degree heat, none the worse for wear, then it will at least be a visible thing instead of me just talking.
Sorry your thread got hijacked. Pitiful shame too. Any word on your treatment?
