Wow, words cant express what a wonderful experience Poland was, or my words cant, but here goes.
It turns out I didn't have stenosis but one jugular had a valve that was upside down, the other jugular had a membrane across it.
Both problems were congenital and have been cleared using balloons rather than stents. My Azygous vein was O.K.
Already my voice is clear and strong, last night there were none of the sleep interrupting spasms and my bladder has stopped going into spasm.
Despite having little sleep my mind is much clearer and faster.
All the team in Poland were very nice and professional too. I cannot fault them.
I will post any more improvements as they occur.
Anyone going soon, there's no need to be apprehensive, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
I noticed from other posts that you have PPMS. Did Dr. Simka say anything about a possible different presentation of stenosis between RRMS and PPMS. I guess what I'm trying to ask is, did he image your spinal column as well?
Congrats Wonky!!!. I am very happy for you... First it was Rici with good news, next one was Erika with good news and now you with good news... Bravo!!! Bravissimo!!! All the best to everyone in the waiting list of Dr. Simka.
Yes, congratulations from me, too! Good to hear that you're feeling already better. I visited Dr. Simka 2 months ago and I know that he is very nice and competent. Tomorrow they will do the procedure on a German in Poland.
Wow I am so happy for your good result at this stage,
Wonky can you please make a tracking entry if you haven't already?
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you... http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-7318-0.html This is my regimen thread http://www.ccsvibook.com Read my book published by McFarland Health topics
