Thank you for sharing this with us, as I've been questioning this.. I'm trying to make a decision of trying it for the 2nd time knowing that I'm not going to stent... if it is really worth it or just better off waiting a bit (since I'm still able to function daily) until my symptoms are bad and then go for the stenting... (problem with stenting is not being able to get help here in Quebec that scares me the most...) This has confirmed what I have been thinking and wondering if it's worth trying it a second time without stenting... so now I know 2nd time around will have to be stenting... which I'm not ready for at this point... As you mentionned about the flight... I wouldn't think that would be the cause... (but I don't really know...) Do you think you would put stents in this time?? Good luck!

I've been wondering how you are doing.
I've also wondered about the long flight and decided that I will most likely drive for the 2nd time around just to be sure. I don't really know where yet. We drove 12 hours to Albany. It wasn't too bad.
Please let us all know what you find out.
Did you need the same veins re-done in Bulgaria the 2nd time?

I am not sure I will go somewhere for the 2nd time around or wait a bit.
I do know that the improvements I felt, would not be placebo. If a person has balance issues either due to blood flow or problems in the brain, you wouldn't be able to get around quickly like I did on those moving belt things you can get on to get through the airport quicker if it were placebo. I rode on several of those and you know how it is when you first step on or off, it throws you off a little. (even the normal people). Placebo would not allow that to happen. I could even talk to my husband as we were hurrying through. I would love it if that continued longer than it did.
I believe in this. Just more to learn and understand.
