If you have mercury or lead in your blood, it would be getting deposited in the brain because of the weakened blood-brain barrier as a result of CCSVI, I think. So not good either. There are more than one way that CCSVI hurts us:
1) slower blood flow through the brain, so reduced oxygen
2) slower blood flow so the brain uses up the glucose in the blood, so reduced glucose or fuel
3) poorer removal of waste products
4) blood leakage via diapedesis into the brain, when the blood breaks down it deposits hemosiderin, which is iron. This is why the iron is the culprit, it's from the red blood cell components directly.
Do your doctors have any ideas what to do about the clot in the stent? Is it 100% clotted off or could a guide wire still get through it? If a guide wire can get in, it could be ballooned.
All the best.
