I so hope my body grows some new veins to compensate.
Where did they do your procedure? What techniques have been used (large ballon, cutting balloon, cutting annulus, stent, etc.)? Did you get a doppler? My IR looked at my IJV and he told me that he would see if the vein wall would be thicker due to scarring.
I w hope you get better.

wouldn't a doppler indicate intimal hyperplasia as well as a clot?? when they do the doppler isn't it to indicate bad flow?? would we have to get a venogram to tell the flow is stopped?? then if we get the veinogram to tell us and if they injure the veins more when trying to correct the problem---where does it all stop---i'm just not grasiping the whole picture here. or am i??

any help???
