Good question. I of course had a long response lost hitherto to the misclick gods.radeck wrote:Thank you for the update. You said that the difference in the angiogram before and after stenting was striking. Can you elaborate on this?

I take it you mean it looks healthy on the after shot, i.e. the width of the vein is as it should be, and one sees the stent holding it up. Fantastic!
It's so good to hear that you didn't require repeat intervention. Literally makes my day!
This small iffy area up high you describe makes me contemplate for a bit...even if it looks like it won't be a problem...just what caused this to come into existence after the fact, i.e. it is definitely not congenital and probably came on due to some changes in your system induced by the first intervention. Changed CSF pressure? Internal venous blood pressure changes? Seems like your body has settled down and is holding it up though, maybe the whole area needs to settle into a new state of equilibrium given the drastic overall fluid changes made possible by the intervention...maybe it'll just go back to completely normal by the time you have your next appointment...just thinking out loud here.

You know, Jeff's thickening in his stent was really minor, but Dr. D wanted to balloon it and did- and I'll bet your little area must be pretty small if he's OK to leave it...he's a perfectionist, so I'm sure it's fine and won't affect your new flow.
Just get on with life, enjoy your family. Keep moving, eat healthy, embrace every moment, be glad you're over this part. Get some sleep. Tomorrow's a brand new day
