I need more smile emoticons! :D :D :D


I think there is every reason to consider that venography will show things more clearly, and indeed identify things not recognized on mrv or US

and good news! i finally got my IVUS up and running today. and it did help me.

CCSVI, Dr.S, and IVUS!

Here's a handful of smiley face emoticons for you!

You're right, of course. I am happy if the catheter venogram shows more or more clearly, as long as it too shows CCSVI.

That is great news on the IVUS.

HappyPoet, thanks for the smileys. :D

Now that I've identified my jugulars in these dang images (to which I'm aware that I'm paying too much mind, they are carrot juice to the promised champagne :wink: ), I see that I misidentified the bright light on the long image of my left jugulars. That light is just an artifact of the imaging, it moves out of the way when I twist the image.

My left jugular is the one on the right that has a diagonal slash across it but does seem to exist again below that slash.

I think having both jugulars and the azygous appear to be messed up is a good thing when it comes to treatment, because it's three opportunities for improvement.

Still seven weeks away from treatment. I am not good at waiting. Although Christmas should be a good distraction. :)
