Hello I am in southern new jersey. I just had doppler ultrasound at a vascular docs showing stenosis of jugular vein. I also just had mrv done via protocol. I am now trying to decide which surgeon to have do the treatment angioplast and or stent on veins.Does anyone have any excellent suggestions. I would perfer to have it locally or at one of univ docs in philadelphia.I have my diagnosis the insurance will cover surgery. I now want an excellent open minded surgeon. Barbara
oh by the way the contrast injection made my face numb on one side.
I would be happy to share any and all info
Gandolium i think was contrast and yes i feel crappy thereafter. I was supposed to have all mrv at same time at atlantic magnaetic imaging but since insurance only pays for 1 a day they split it up and I got wacked with contrast twicwe. First time half my face got numb a couple hours later. Great poison yourself more to get tests proof so you can get help. Oh well tracking down Penn docs for surgery. Barbara taking lots of NAC
supposedly dopler was how Zamboni diagnosed all the stenosis. I think that if they don't know how to read a a mrv exactlyy you can't always read it correctly. Bring exact protocol with you on doppler and get it done it is not invasive. barbara
