Renal veins were just fine, left iliac had a blockage with a small flow bypass trough the iliac-lumbar vein but was considered non significant and was not treated considering my azygous vein was just fine too.
My right Jugular vein was totally collapsed and considered beyond treatment at this point.A catheter could be considered in the future.
My left Jugular vein had a 30% narrowing in diameter at the level of the lower valve and was dilated with a balloon.
Immediately after the procedure I had more strength in my right arm and I was able to cross my right leg over the left which I could not do for the last 5 years.
My walking was also significant better.
Today I lost the gain in strength of my right arm but my lower extremities are still fine.
Overall it was a positive experience and I felt no pain during the treatment.
I would not have any problem repeating the procedure as often as needed.
I am going to be on Plavix for a month and then on baby aspirin to prevent clothing.
Hopefully I will continue to improve in the next few weeks.
