CCSVI carried out on the 27 Dec 10 at the Edinburgh Clinic Scotland.
The procedure went well with findings of valve malfunctions on both the left and right side, the right side was stubborn and required double ballooning, the azygous vein was very narrow but opened well. The staff and consultant Donald Reid did a great job at making the whole process stress free.
Feeling fine after the procedure , however there was no noticeable improvement, however I was informed that as my symptoms were not noticeably bad that I may not see a difference immediately, however despite this I still feel that this is a preventative method, and it was the right route to take.
I have found that post op have had headaches, pain between my shoulder blades, and the right side of my neck was a little sore, but nothing a paracetamol could not cure.
My numb hands were little sorer after the op but I have been informed that it was the arms over head during the op which may have caused this !!!!who knows!!
Having a well deserved glass of wine tonight!
