Continuation of the Odyssey

Postby Rici » Sun May 22, 2011 1:48 pm

My Odyssey continues.
As I said I had a spectacular improvement after narrowing of the diameter of the right vein of 31 - 32 mm to 12 mm, which significantly improved the hemodynamics of blood circulation to the brain. However, currently experienced swelling in the operated site, which is pushing me to the vein (found, confirmed by ultrasound). The result is an impediment to re-drain. Swelling at the operated due to immunosuppressive agents is acting!. This fact is confirmed by a neurologist. In applying these measures wounds heal very bad after surgery. I feel a bit like d Dr. Putnam's dogs with a closed veins. But already after a few minutes when applying a cold gel the reaction is positve.

I hope the inflammation goes down and healing continues, Rici.

this is so surprising!.

A 32 mm jugular is not the result of an angioplasty. One would suspect an arteriovenous fistula or severe heart failure with a vein of that dimension.

i hope the inflammation subsides and healing accelerates.

Good luck Rici. Are you on any medications for the rt vein now? I hope the healing gets better each day.

Hi Dr. Sclafani.

Just a remark. Rici had no angioplasty. He had a open neck surgery to reduce the diameter of the IJV, because it was too wide. It seems that Dr. Schelling was directing the surgery.

The surgery was to correct the increased size of the jugular, presumed to be due to the angioplasty a year prior, but if severe heart failure or arteriovenous fistula have not been ruled out, that is a concern....

Rici's case seems to indicate that too big is as bad as too small when it comes to veins. Could it be that the large veins allow blood to flow out too quickly so it is not retained in the capillaries long enough for oxygen to diffuse through the caplliary wall into the surrounding tissue?

I'm just thinking out loud. Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

Thank you for your reply Dr. Sclafani. I already had a broad right vein before the first and second angioplasty. However, during the second angioplasty my valve was damaged. Before the procedure Dr. Schelling warned me and Euromedic about possibility of such terrible consequences. Also my already broad vein was widened.( http://www.ccsvi-ms.pl/video4.avi )

Hi
With a wide vein is even worse than with too narrow. Narrowing remove angioplasty, and a broad vein can only be narrowed with the open surgery. Well, we already have a place where we can have such an operation and this is to be made at first-class hospital: http://www.medicover.com/plen/hospital/
