I am not trying to say stents are horrible. Nor am I trying to say anything bad about Dr. Dake. I have a lot of respect for Dr. Dake. All I am saying is that now Dr. Dake has told my Dr. not to use stents until they can develop one for the veins. I am sorry if my information was wrong about plavix. That is what I was told. But still baby aspirin is a blood thinner and you do have to take it for the rest of your life. It is also impossible to remove the stent, it is there for the rest of your life as well.
There is also the azygos vein, where stints can be placed. I am just referring to the jugulars right now. I am also referring to what Zambonni said about Not using stints until there is one that is developed for the vein. Thanks
