After reading results from people, I think it best to show my CCSVI story by giving you my website. There is a video of my pre-lib and I'll be making my post-lib on 11/30 because I didn't get to it tonight. (11/29)
As you will read (above), I had a traumatic experience the day after (11/9) and was told not to take the 325 mg. of aspirin until the pseudo-aneurysm / hematoma had resolved. I still have a lump in my groin, but the bruise is almost gone, so I started aspirin a few days ago. (Prescribed to take it for 3 months.)
They went into the artery and not the vein, but Dr. Siskin didn't mention it. It happens, I know - it has happened to me before. He told me they had ballooned LIJ and RIJ and azygos... (5 balloons). I then asked what percentage blocked and he said "I don't work with percentages." The funny thing is - he told me TEN times at the first consultation that there is no such thing as 100% of anything. (He stated that in different ways after I disagreed with him.) So I can't compare my blockages with anybody else's that use percentages. ("mildly positive") I asked if he took care of the "reflux" and he told me that I already know how he feels about that; "It has not been validated."
I was never told in his 30 second post-op visit that they had put "Angio-Seal" devices (like tiny plugs) in the artery and the vein. But what was worse, I lifted my suitcase the next morning. If I wasn't staying in the hotel across the street, who knows what would have happened? I was all alone! I was so shook up - I'm glad I didn't have an exacerbation before I could get on the train to go home. Don't go alone for the procedure. Everyone is so stressed out for this procedure that I'm wondering what part that plays when people are WORSE after.
I'm going back on 12/14 to compare my before and after ultrasound. It was originally scheduled for the next day, but I guess after what he did - he may have been concerned about the healing. (I don't know.) Little did he know the healing will be longer than anticipated when he rescheduled the post-ultrasound on Liberation Day!
