I am blown away by what has happened to you, and so very, very sorry. Like everyone here, my personal hopes are that everyone comes through this with positive results. But there has to be some one to go first, the pioneers like yourself, if research is to go forward. Thank you Redeck for what you put on the line. I appreciate it, I have learned from. it, I will proceed with caution. I’m sure this will draw needed attention to make this procedure safer for those that come after you.
I remember from your earlier posts that you weren’t too keen on the stints, you tended to lien more toward ballooning. And you seemed to have had a 6th sense or premonition, or what ever you might call it about this.
“Given that Z's patients do quite well at least until the narrowing gets worse again, and that I only had this since 11 months and am at least somewhat stable since 3 months, I would therefore not mind if I "only" got ballooned for now.” also “I'm probably thinking about it too much, as I always do.”
You were obviously right to have had concerns; and I’m so sorry again for what you are now going through. Please heal and get as strong as you can for your loved ones; they need you and we need you.
