I had my second procedure about 3 weeks ago. The doctor was unable to balloon my RIJV, it is fully closed. Has anyone else had this same problem? Is there anything that can be done to open it? Is it possible to replace the vein? I know that sounds extreme...
I felt like a million bucks after my first procedure. He was able to open my RIJV but not without some resistance.

WinnipegGirl_83 wrote:Thornyrose, I am not certain but it is definitely happening. I know Dr. Sclafini has attempted to do a venogram/plasty on the Wheelchair Kamikaze. I am not certain of all the details but from what I gathered he was not able to get through all of his veins.
I know Mark posts on TIMS, hopefully he will see the thread and clarify his experience for us.
