what do I need from my GP? (pre/post stent)

I am going in for my first GP doctor visit since I was a child for a full checkup - I have a neurologist, but never had a regular doctor.

But since I am going out to Stanford in December, I thought I should probably get one, to help deal with the post-op blood thinner stuff, etc.

OK, so in addition to letting him take my health measure across the board, I want to prepare ...

Low jugular stenosis, SCM muscle, and inspiration

Collapses low down in the jugular veins, one-sided (unilateral) or both-sided (bilateral) is the second most common type of blockage found by Dr. Dake. They are above the clavicle/collar bone, at the intersection of sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle and jugular vein. The SCM muscle is an accessory muscle of inspiration, i.e. it helps holding up the windpipe when you inhale. In another thread (http://www.thisisms.com/ftopict-8518.html

Brain Veins! and L'hermettes

I have seen a couple of comments related to the 'alternative' veins that the body uses and what happens to them when the jug's are opened and working correctly.
Did I miss a thread on this or something?

Also, this is just a thought, but could l'hermettes have anything to do with our problem with lack of 'room' where our veins/nerves/arteries are getting pinched together?

2 month check-up done somewhere other than Stanford???

I am one week out from surgery and feeling good! Alex called to schedule my 2 month check-up today. I really can't head back to CA at Christmastime, which is when I'd have to go. I asked if I could have the imaging done elsewhere and I'm waiting for an answer.
Has anyone had their check-up done somewhere other than Stanford???
