SCUBA Diving and CCSVI

I was wondering if anyone here is a diver and notices any changes to their symtoms from the pressure caused by underwater diving? I found a related post in another subform here: but it doesn't really address venous pressure

I just returned last night from a 5-day dive trip in Key West. I was treated by Dr. Sclafani in June, and specifically asked him about diving, knowing this trip would be after my treatment. He could think of no contraindications, and I had some great dives. I still feel great (thanks, Dr. Sclafani!).

I still think somebody ought to be trying hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a post angioplasty enhancement. I bet it would lower the risks of restenosis and thrombosis, and speed up the symptom improvements. You could even hope for more improvements but that would be a tough one to prove, and who would pay for that?
