Day after Procedure

Postby thornyrose76 » Fri Jan 21, 2011 7:54 pm

A question for those that have had the procedure: What physical condition are you in and how did you feel the day after the priocedure?

I'm in a wheelchair 24-7 and am wondering about travel time. I am planning to fly home the day after the procedure. I am wondering how I will feel the day after the procedure, so I am curious how others felt the day after the procedure?

Thornyrose 76 - I flew home the day after procedure and felt great both physically & mentally. However, I am now going for angio #2 (probably restenosis) and am remaining nearby the facility for 4 days post procedure per Dr. recommendations. I wish you positive results!

Hi Thornyrose,
I think it depends on how much work they end up doing on you. If you are a simple case, with no complications, stents or special drugs, then you will not feel much except a little sore in the areas worked on.

But if you end up with stents and blood thinners, anticoagulant shots, you may feel tired or even wiped out. I hope you have someone with you on the trip both ways. If they do a lot of work, stay an extra day or two if you can afford it, it makes a difference, in your recovery too. JMO

Good Luck to you and a speedy recovery with tons of improvements.

Emma had both Jugs and the azygos ballooned - she was exhausted the following day, spent most of it relaxing.

If you can allow a days rest before travel you'll appreciate it.

My BF is not wheelchair dependant yet, but he uses a cane all the time. He was exhausted for a few days after the proc. We actually stayed for 3 days after the proc. I would advise as the others above me to try to stay for at least a day or two after the proc. Good luck to you!

I had the procedure on a Friday morning and flew on Sunday. If I were you, I would allow myself a few extra days. I would not have felt up to flying on the Saturday. I required a lot of medication during the procedure and was tired and "out of it" the next day.

Best of luck!

Hello. I'm in a wheelchair too, I had the procedure to treat CCSVI about seven weeks ago.

I felt fine the following day, it just so happened that I had a train ticket booked three days after it happened and a flight four, but I could have travelled that following day no problem.

I have a thrombosis on one side but, despite this I have felt real improvement. Quite a few symptoms have either cleared up or eased. The stiffness in my legs, the clonus and leg spasms have improved lots.

Good luck!
