I have been trying to understand (to know the risks) what would happen if the vein dies? For example, would a person need an amputation or have paralysis in that area or have permanent pain in that area?
Also if a thrombosis did happen after CCSVI would it happen fairly immediately (within hours or days) or could it be weeks or months later. I am asking because I don't live near a big hospital and if it is something that happens within a few days I would prefer to stay near a big hospital for those few days.
Thank you for any information. I know it is a small percentage who experience this. I just would like to understand it a little better, especially, what are the ramifications/consequences of a thrombosis.
