Just a quick check in as I need some sleep
I got back from Poland yesterday. Everything was a little hectic there... I arrived on Wednesday and went to see Professor Simka on Thursday. He told me that there was reflux throughout the whole of my LJV and it appeared that I had restenosed. He said that they had made provision for me to have the procedure again the following day if that is what I wanted.
Is that what I wanted YES!!
Anyway, I went into the hospital first thing Friday morning, was first on the list for the procedure at 9.30. Whilst in there I was told that my LJV was 80% closed and that this time they would try a larger balloon above and below and a small balloon in the middle of where it was narrowed. I was asked if I had considered a stent, to which I replied that I had and that although I was reluctant at this time, if the doctor thought it was absolutely necessary then he could go ahead. ( I was passing the buck slightly, but totally trusted his decision). Anyway as it happened he did not use a stent and I was happy with that.
Stayed overnight in the hospital Friday and rested in the hotel room on Saturday before flying home early Sunday morning.
It has been a bit of a whirlwind but I am glad to be home
The results so far?? My balance is better again, I am hoping that that will continue to improve. I am having all sorts of weird sensations down my left side, especially in my arm and hand, it feels like it is thowing out, for want of a better description? I keep getting a weird feeling and then a sharp electric shock in my fingers, only lasts a couple of seconds, and then a nice warming tingling feeling through my arm. Will see how that pans out.
Anyway, I am going back to my nice warm bed and will update in a few days when I have recharged my batteries
Take care all
