Not 100%

I talked to Island Girl last night she did not have any answers yet and more testing today.

She did NOT have an operable stenosis.

She literally took one for the team guys. She had her MRI MRV and then dopplers. All appeared normal, but Dr D wanted to look with venogram and make sure so she agreed to do that just to make sure nothing was in there beyond the MRV.

pain ques.

Holy Moly!!! I'm in more pain than I thought imaginable...I had reduced my dose of neurontin for awhile 'case I needed my brains for a bit..I'm paying now..

For those who got MRV CDs from Stanford

I was wondering if you'd be willing to share the MRV CD contents with the community? It might be helpful while we're trying to 'recruit' new doctors if we can share some of the scans with them along with the studies? What does everyone think?
