Anyway, he was surprised by the fact the he could count all of my lesions on less than one hand, and that my symptoms are entirely related to walking and gait. I don't suffer from exhaustion, heat sensitivity, brain fog, and all those other "pesky" symptoms. He also was surprised by the absolute pressure numbers in my veins (not the pressure gradient or the numbers before and after stenting). He said that they were about 3 - 4x what he has seen in the other MS patients. He said that it wasn't high enough to be concerned about heart problems, but that it was definitely unique.
My left jugular was completely occluded and he put two stents in. My right was only partially obstructed, maybe 50 - 60%. I think he struggled over whether to do anything on the right side or not. He ended up putting one on the right side just for good measure. He found nothing in the azygos.

In the brain, I have a few periventricular lesions in the left side of the pons. One of these is hypointense on T1 weighted imaging (aka a black hole). All lesions show normal enhancement.
