Clavicle ... SUBClavian ... DOH! Some of these vein names actually make sense.

BooBear, that is awesome.

The IR is on vacation this week, so I likely won't hear anything until next Monday. I would assume he will perform a venogram or MRV next.

My only regret is that I could not see the Doppler while she was performing the tests. I could hear her typing notes and concentrating on certain areas, but I was not at an angle where I could see anything. ARGH!! I wanted to see so badly!!

When I met my husband in the waiting room, he had this look of "Well?" on his face. I just wanted to get out of there before I burst into tears- I knew it, I knew it, I knew it- and now someone else knew it, too. Funny thing is, he was excited that I had an issue with my vein!! Only those of us close to the issue can understand the excitement!!! :)

I will let you guys know as soon as I know!
