So I did the CCSVI

Postby MA » Mon Jan 17, 2011 4:43 pm

I did it Dec 24 2010. Dr. Arata told me it will take a few months but no guarantees. So far I feel my mental fatigue is less BUT my physical fatigue has increased significantly. EVERYTHING ELSE - pretty much the same, though I am told I look better (less glazed). This could be fatigue from the surgery. Would I do it again? Yes

Yaaaaay for you and congrats! You will certainly feel more fatigued right now from the stress and activity you just endured. I hope you see results sooner than months.

Congrats on your procedure, I hope the fatigue improves over time. Do you have a doppler ultrasound scheduled for follow-up? If the fatigue increase does not abate, I would consider the follow-up particularly important, to rule out any causes for that worsening. But you are right that it could be fatigue from the surgery and the travel and even all the emotions that are usually involved! Take care and keep us posted. :)

Congratulations!!! I hope you see results really soon. It's strange even the people that didn't see immediately something amazing always say that they would do it again!! Do you feel like something has changed?
