They said that I should also be examined by an eye doctor prior to the procedure. Why? Anyway I should have been taken there already 40 mins ago.
I have a question to the liberated ones. What kind of anaesthetic do you get? Is it the painful one injected to your spine?

Not been liberated myself but I read that it was a local anaesthetic not an epidural.

Hi Greyman,

Don't worry, its just a sedative that gets pumped into the air via the tube clipped under your nose! You also get a local anaestetic injected by your groin so that you don't feel the probe etc.

Best of luck today, very excited for you!

I still haven't been taken to the eye doctor.
Currently nervous about two things:
Can I have my head inclined during the op to avoid vertigo?
How will my body react to the dye?

Dr Simka is the radiologist/doppler specialist who was trained in Italy and has trained others since. He does not do the procedures, Dr Ludyga does. I'm not sure how many they have done, but when I first heard about them it was 6, since then of course they seemed to have screened and operated on many more patients from all over the world. Greyman was saying that 3 or 4 people were having the intervention done whilst he was waiting for his. You could ask Erika, she is in touch with people from different countries and has probably got a better idea than me. Edser also seems to chat to people on different website....

Guess what. An hour ago my procedure was finished!
After the whole thing dr. Ludyga said 'Prosze pana super!' which means something like 'awesome, mister!'.
No stents, just balloons. More details to come when I get back home tomorrow.
