How are your symptoms? My left vein is clotted totally now 100% so I know how disappointed you must feel. (I am afraid of my future too)
Which side do we consider the left/right side? Is it our left or the dr's left when they are facing us?

I am imagining that any future work on that vein will probably be open surgery. But I really don't know. Dr Haskal is still doubtful that a blood thinner will help, but nevertheless he put me on Plavix for six months. The scarring is not caused by the blood, but by the stent Dr Haskal is right about blood thinners probably not being very helpful in my case.
