Well I'm 3 days out from angioplasty (Weds am) and I feel able to post again.
Remembering I'm PPMS and have been so for 16 years.
Initially I felt no different from before the procedure. I did have quite some pain during it whilst the wire was up above my ears. Stenoses were found in both IJVs, (doppler only found stenosis in RIJV), not sure exactly where as I'd zoned out by that time.
But as soon as the wire was retracted from my head, I realised I could hear much clearer and louder. I'd been listening to my mp3 before going in, then later I had to dramatically reduce the volume.
During the rest of the day, I felt as before. I don't think I ever really had brainfog, just chronic headaches. Woke next morning, still felt the same, though I'd have a restful night's sleep. And my neck which is always stiff, just wasn't anymore.
Rested during Thursday, still felt the same, though I had the feeling my vision was sharper. (I've never had much more than slight double vision). That night it was quite warm, but I slept well again. Felt well when I got up and realised I was coping quite well with the heat.
During the day I realised my ankles, which blow up all the time, weren't swollen, even in the heat.
So this morning, (good night's sleep again) I found I could straighten my right hand out for a brief time (not done that in a year or so) and my grip, which I lost 2 month's ago, is slowly returning. ( I do a lot of sewing, so imagine my previous devestation).
So, for having PPMS, I imagine my journey to be very long and very slow. but it is happening. I need the headaches to go away. So far I've had a minor one each afternoon since the procedure, minor, but still there.
I wish I had more dramatic things to post like everyone else, but then there are some tiny changes for the better.
Have a great weekend all
