I'm certain Dr Simka and his team are skilled professionals who will make sure that going home will be safe and comfortable. But what happens then? That's what I'm not sure about - especially with a hostile medical profession over here. Any advice or tips from you CCSVI graduates, welcomed.
Keep you posted.
I do not think it is a problem. Well, in my case it was not. I was even able to travel to Slovakia next day by train. Of course, I did not want to risk anything. I did not know my body `s reaction to Clexane to after procedure, but everything was fine. Of course I was slowly and some of my bruises were little painful. But is is OK to sit in a Taxi or in train. People helped me with my little suitcase.
Anyway I spent almost whole three days after my procedure in Katowice. I could return to hospital to ask for help anytime but it was not necessary.
I went to see my GP after I was back home just to say hello, I am done, she new about it but she did not know the date. I only showed her my little wound - the small place where they entered with the catheter it is in my groin. It was fine. I told her I do inject Clexane - I do not have any problems with that. I just asked her for the prescription of 150 mg aspirin as I thought I would have to take it longer, I will have to ask Dr. Simka for how long, because I forgot to ask, but I still take 150 mg of aspirin once a day.
An angiologist wants to see me and he would like to be informed, so I will go there next week - it is only 33 km far from my town. I do not need him to check me but he could do it in the future. They also have MR there and he is actually also doing these kind of procedures. So try to do the same trick. At least one angiologist will be informed. But as you may be remember my traveling around almost whole Slovakia, more radiologists and angiologists are informed. Only a few neurologists. I do it step by step. I do not want to shock them too much.
But I really fell fine - I mean my after procedure status. Of course I still have MS problems, but even that is better.
I know it is easier for me I go to Poland in January - my trip is not that expensive as yours. I am sure you will always have the possibility to consult Dr. Simka.
