Dr. Dake said something interesting that whilst he's not seen stenosis like this in non-ms patients he has seen congenitally malformed jugs on other people, he said one difference he's noticed is that people with MS tend to have low blood pressure. He speculated that low blood pressure combined with a congenital weakness could be causing the back flow and damage.
It could be that people with MS tend to eat healthy and exercise more so they have lower blood pressure...?

Count me in the low blood pressure camp.
Jamie, do you mind saying a bit more about the trip home when you can? (Or pm if you would prefer.) If I have the surgery, I will be flying on my own, so the more prepared the better. (I think Sharon had mentioned the wheel chair service so it's on my list, but any other tips would be great.) My flight would be 3 days after surgery so that may help.
Will look forward to the blow-by-blow...
Thanks. And thanks so much for all your posting. Hope Mel is feeling better!
I think just leave plenty of time to navigate the airport, we were late, get the chair service and try and get a window seat so you aren't 'bumped' by people, sudden jolts hurt.
Maybe high contributes just as much as low
