Thorny--I think it is VERY important to know if you have a clotting disorder or hypercoaguable blood. Jeff and Marie both knew they had thick blood before treatment a Stanford...this is INCREDIBLY important because thick blood can form clots more easily. Your doctor will know the tests for hypercoaguable blood. Also make sure you do not have APS, or Hughes Syndrome. This is also a clotting disorder. You'll also need a creatinine test to make sure your kidneys are functioning well and able to clear the dye. Talk with you doc about this, and any other concerns you may have. And make sure you have follow up care to keep blood flowing. I hope you're staying close to home....
all the best-
