Well, John was doing great for about 6 weeks after angio and now seems to be regressing! He is walking worse than before the procedure and the headaches have returned.
John is going back for another procedure with Dr. Sclafani. Hopefully he can get this darn jugular opened and make it stay open! The first procedure was pretty aggressive with a large balloon too.
I do want to mention that John's fatigue is still GONE though! So, that is a good thing.
Any thoughts on why elastic recoil happens?
I'm so sorry to hear this. Could it be a clot?
Is another venogram and whatever is required considered part of the original cost, or is this treated like a new procedure? Is John still on blood thinners and do they have to be discontinued before another procedure? Does the doctor go back in the same left hand side?
Was this John's first procedure?
Dr. Zamboni seems to have had greater success with subsequent procedures for those who re-stenosed, if that helps at all.
