This is the first time I have posted for a few years since having my two procedures at euromedic in Poland.
I first went to Poland on the 13th Jan 2010 where I had balloon angioplasty on my left jugular,unfortunately after having no improvements from this I returned in March for a doppler with Dr Simka,It was found that I had re-stenosis.
On the 7th May 2010 I had my second procedure where my left jugular was ballooned first then implanted with 2 stents and also my right jugular was ballooned.
Around the time of having my second procedure, stents where more popular and maybe the only way to guaranty lasting results and I stupidly begged for them
Heres the video I put up on u tubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOhoumPf ... r_embedded
The two treatments did not help and I have continued to progress with worsening disability since.
I am concerned about the stents, I get neck aches daily around the stent area, more muscle nerve pain around the shoulder/neck.
I don't think the 2 stents (which are joined together) have clotted, but because I can't get it look at easily in the U.K, I am not 100% sure. I'm hopefully getting a doppler early next year.
Also I contacted Euromedic expressing my concerns and they sent this reply.
Your stents are: Wallstent 16x60mm and Wallstent 16x20mm - both in left jugular vein. The material of the stent stays for lifetime. Nothing should happen with it in mechanical way.
Another issue is possibility of thrombosis or hyperplasia, therefore you need to remember about doppler check-ups at least every 6 months.
I was wondering if there our other people who suffer with daily muscle neck/shoulder ache around the area of there stents ?
Are the stent causing me more problems because they are to big ?
Thanks for any advice
