He was totally enthusiastic and excited about it all. Took a short survey re: fatigue and tasks also an EDSS self assessment. tell more tomorrow. H.
sounds like he's learning more about the stenosis of the jugulars in the collarbone area as opposed to the higher blockage he's seen in patients like Jeff and Mel... and is using less invasive, smaller stents there

After the consult of collar bone placement once the op began he placed my rt. jug stent in the middle of hte jug and the lt jug new stent was placed below or maybe overlap like Sharons.
My recovery was not remarkable. Sore neck afraid to turn it but by the end of the night I loosed up and could look both ways freely, I got back to my sisters place by 8:00pm . Today I even feel better and will go to a farmers market and to a remote bay view park. Of course riding/pushed in a wheelchair.
tootles and once back home I can embellish further. Hugs H
