3 week post stent update

Hi Everybody - it's just over 3 weeks, since my dual jugular stents were put in at Stanford. I wanted to let you all know the latest. All head pain is gone, and it's usually very easy to forget these are even 'in'.

heparin warfarin cautions used in CCSVI therapy

source Webmd

Taking Heparin and Warfarin for Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Heparin and warfarin (Coumadin) are two types of blood thinners (anticoagulants) commonly used in deep vein thrombosis treatment.

Lil Red Ridinghood

Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the forest road when she sees the big bad wolf crouched down behind a log.

'My, what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf.'

The wolf jumps up and runs away.

Further down the road Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again and this time he is crouched behind a bush.

'My what big ears you have, Mr. Wolf.'

Again the wolf jumps up and runs away.

Marie's PCP read Zamboni and said "OMG this is IT," that gives me freakin goose bumps.

My situation: 45 yrs old, minor right-sided weakness and bladder issues, probably have to start IC in a few months. Symptoms started 2 yrs ago. MRI is clear, except for narrow syringomyelia T7-T9. Spinal tap says MS. Haven't been to a specialist so I haven't been diagnosed but I think it's very likely to be PPMS. I don't have ...

Throw a few good days in the mix and I think it results in a net negative. No I wouldn't trade the good days for the world, but a few days without ON and dizziness just make it worse when they come roaring back. It just lets you down. OK, I'm done. I freakin' hate this shitty ass disease. I go almost two weeks where I really (except for bladder and bowels) did well. ...
