Just back from having the procedure yesterday and feeling pretty good considering I have had zero sleep.
I had angioplasty done on my left jugular with a 10x40mm balloon and will be coming back to Poland for a Doppler to check that this has held up in about 3-6 months.
Who knows maybe by then there be at least one person could carry out the Doppler testing correctly in U.K .
As far as the procedure it was totally pain less and I only feel a slight sensation when they did balloon but nothing really.
On average the other 3 patients and my procedure took 60-90mins each.
Seems like they are doing 10 patients a week at present but not sure because of the obvious demand this will increase.
I’m sorry I did not get a moment to talk to Dr Simka about why people are not get definite dates emailed when they should have been.
They have no intention of stopping these treatments so they must be just waiting for definite times and dates before sending out future emails.
There would be no harm at all to phone Dr Simka and ask how long he thinks this will take.
Just like to say a big thank you to thisisms and Erika who inspired me to contact Dr Simka 2 days after her procedure last year.
A great thread about Poland came from Mutley http://www.thisisms.com/ftopict-8942.html
and made the whole trip very easy and stress free for me thanks.
I hope to be able to report some improvements soon.
