first thank you for all the good wishes Terry read them to me over the phone and htye mean so much.
Second of all this is real surgery. NO kidding.
Third of all Dr Dake stresses that we have no way of knowing if this *will*
help MS. However I did ask him if it were his MRV showing that blockage would he do it, and he said yes absolutely. But he wants to make sure there are no false promises implied. Jeff's recent post very clearly made that case...
Terry (My darling sister) said
pressure in the blood vessel (on the brain-side) went from 13 in one vein and 5 in the other to 2 and 1 after the stents were put in (don't ask me the scale, cuz I am not sure). .....- but that she will know more once she is off the drugs
FOURTH--Well I do know more now; mea culpa!!-------the 15 reading was not in the vein, it was somewhere else both of the veins were on the order of 5 or 6 then 1 or 2, but the surgery is considered a great success because all the numerous collateral veins that were taking the blood and which ordinarily should be invisible to venography (but which in my case were all large from carrying the load the jugs weren't doing) became once again very small while the jugs were carying the load as they should be, this means that the path of least resistance is now my jugulars.....which is the right way for things to be.
ok I gotta post this cause I am on borrowed computer time....
can you beleive the luck the battery giving its last gasp THIS week??? geez
