Did the doctor say why balloons for you and not stents? Or was this your choice to have the balloons? instead of the stents or do they assess what is better for each patient? . Can you honestly see instant results? I hope you keep getting improvments please post as you see them will encourage all of us readers to get tested and liberated.
Thankyou for all your updates great to see you are doing well I will keep checking your posts with your improvments as they come.
To be honest, dr. Simka right after the Doppler said that ballooning would probably be enough to get rid of those problems. And later, neither dr. Ludyga nor anyone asked me what I wanted. Kind of funny for me was dr. Ludyga and Simka's phone conversation app. 2 hours before my procedure. I mean I heard only dr. Ludyga saying: "Aaa zastawki? To przepucujemy je balonami!" transl. "Ah, valves? So we'll just brush them with balloons!". I really liked the word "przepucujemy" which is a very informal word for "we'll brush" . After the procedure, when dr. L showed me the screen, he told me that they had decided to use balloon angioplasty because stents are really when no other choice is possible. The more so that the balloons did the job very well in my case.
OK, let's be honest:
1. Warmer hands
2. Much smaller vertigo
1. Better stair tackling (up and down) (<- smaller spasticity?)
2. Better heat tolerance. Today I took shower warmer than usual to check. And felt nothing wrong afterwards.
But the subjective ones may be just results of a better day which we MSers all have, amongst those worse.
