I should think a newbie especially one that has to pay out of pocket is interested in hearing how likely he/she will have to pay up 1-2-3-X times and if the initial improvements stick after multiple treatments and how likely it is to end up worse with multiple treatments etc. I am also interested in this information even anecdotal, but it sure would be nice if IRs actually stored this data and followed up with patients.

I believe it to be from things(bones, muscles) putting pressure on the veins to the point it collapses. getting treated is just temporarily fixing things but eventually the vein will close back up and even worse because now the vein is weaker from being stretched,so when it collapses again it will be worse like we're seeing. have we seen stenosis on different parts on a vein? why havent we seen stenosis happen at different parts of a vein that has been stented? why is it that only that small section of vein is getting stenosised ?
i think everyone should get tested but not treated then have where is showing stenosis fixed(upper cervical care, TOS, and CTOS) then if needed getting treated.
I cant be the only one thinking about this?
a short study from a doctor that would explain his thoughts on what causing stenoses, how it can be treated and what are the potential complications after operation and why they happen.
