I have been reading here for some time, am considering going to Zamboni, if I can find the money. My impression is, he "only" does the ballooning procedure, not stents. I am waoried about stents, they don't seem to be safe. Some feel pain, and one has wandered off to the heart.
Has anyone had the idea, that, instead of a stent, a piece of vene from some part of the body could be transplantet to the jugular venes and replace some of the stented ones? Hmm, I wonder if that would be possible.
Yes, this would of course mean surgery with anasthetics, but in my mind it would still be safer that stents wandering off.
OK, I'm off now. I had great difficulty joining, but have finally managed. Excuse my english, it is a foreign language for me
