Hi everyone, I'm new here at TIMS.
This is a very informative and helpful site. I've been "visiting" for the past year and a half, but never joined. This is my first post. dx approx. 18 yrs. ago. In the past 6 mos. I've had 3 angioplasties. My follow-up ultrasound showed flow in both JV's but I'm not sure about my azygous. Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, God bless!!

welcome to TIMS, dlynn :)
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
