I think I have a little of everything over the years, in many body parts.
On my first CCSVI US, it was mentioned that I have a small goiter, and many nodules in the Thyroid. I said, "Yes I know." I get tested often with blood work, take Synthroid for low Thyroid function (Hypo-Thyroid) and once every year I get my Thyroid US. I am due in May again for the US, the blood work a bit sooner.
I have to say, I asked my IR who has preformed my Thyroid biopsies on my dominant nodules a few times, about the Thyroid draining into the Jugulars. He said, yes.
He is not the same IR who did my CCSVI procedure. That was Dr. Gary Siskin. My Thyroid IR doctor had Dr. Gary Siskin as his professor and mentor, they are still good friends too.
To get to the point, since I had the CCSVI procedure, my Thyroid does not hurt or look or feel swollen. I had to give away all clothing tops that were not V-neck shaped. They hurt my Thyroid, scarves too.
Now my Thyroid does not hurt, I find that interesting. Also I had low blood sugar, hypoglycemic. I don't get that anymore. Seems more normal now. I self-test with monitor.
Still until the end of May's testing, Thryoid US and full blood work up, I will not know for sure it these corrections are from the CCSVI procedure.
My Endocrinologist and Neurologist both know I was treated for CCSVI and seem okay with my decision.
Where there is a will, there is a way. "HOPE"
