10/29/09 My husband said Dr. Dake came out to the waiting room after my 2.5 hour procedure and gave an enthusiastic run down, on what I gathered from the corner of my eye was a flawless installation of 3 stents & 1 angioplasty. Both jugulars a mess, but azygos OK. Flew back to Seattle Sun. and I'm recovering well, but muscles still weak. Neck pain initially severe, a few headaches, but now manageable, just using Tylenol, percocet made me sick.
Will post tracking log once I get doctors notes, so I can be accurate, and I've got great pictures. I will add tips for future stenters to this thread. Thankyou to this amazing CCSVI community, having so much info up front helped me visualize a perfect outcome at Stanford, a happy ending to 15 years of suffering.
