Hello Everyone, This is my first blog. I am here to write about my experience with CCSVI for MS. I had both of my Jugular Veins scanned via ultra sound on April 26Th. It was clear to anyone's eye that they were both blocked. Next the Dr. sent me to an MRV scan which is like a MRI but of the veins. This scan showed the same thing 2 blocked jugular veins. The next day they took me in for an angioplasty of the jugular veins. I was awake for the procedure with intravenous sedatives. The procedure was a little un comfortable. When they used the balloon to open my veins I could feel the air up each side of my face which caused a terrible headache like pain for about 5 mins on each side. The procedure took two hours. I was told that the blood pressure through the jugular veins should be between 40-50. Mine was 260 on one side and 300 on the other. Due to the blockage my blood had to push much harder to get to the brain or to drain from the brain. My amazing Dr. opened my veins back up to a 40. It has been 4 days since my liberation and I am still a little sore in my neck as well as my leg/groin area where the entered with the catheter.
Here is a little bit about my MS. I was diagnosed with RRMS in Jan of this year. So I have only had one attack and that attack happened in Jan. i only have 3 lesions two on the brain one on the spine all very small. I opp ed out of taking any MS drugs. My Dr. said because of how new my MS is it will take 6 months to a year to tell if the treatment has helped me. So I plan to blog on my progress and most of all help others to find there liberation. Thanks for reading Tisa
