I have been on that roller coaster. My left internal jugular does not want to stay clot free. I had a stent put in in Albany, it was one large clot at my 3 month check up. The Dr. in MN removed the clot and put me on anti-coagulation therapy. I improved symptom wise, then started to clot again. Have had this done a few times and started to get some relief from symptoms, then after about three weeks it starts to clot again. My Dr. is trying to figure out what to try next.
I am on coumadin, plavix and use lovenox pre and post procedure, but it hasn't stopped a thrombosis from occuring.
I still am more awake, alert, walk better, etc. since this whole thing started last Fall. My right side still has issues like foot drop, grip strength, etc.
I would like to see what the affect on my synptoms would be if my body could keep that vein open.
