I just wanted to write and tell you all how I am feeling. In one Word GREAT!!
As I last told you at 30 days post liberation, my left vein closed slightly, but I cant tell. I truly feel as though my body is healing itself. I also truly believe that CCSVI is one of the main reasons. The other being God. He has answered my prayers!
I have a 60 day post check up a week from tomorrow. so the 29th. I will first see my Dr. who performed the Liberation, and then go immediately to my MS Dr. who will be performing another MRI to see if my lesions are healing and to make sure there is no evidence of new disease! So I will tell you how that goes.
I also wanted to touch on one thing; Stents. A lot of you are not aware of the risks of using stints in the veins. Stents were made for arteries, which are way bigger and thicker than veins. So if a Dr. wants to put a stent in your jugular JUST say No! There is a high risk that the stint can move, and it has happened to 2 patients at Standford. Dr. Dake who originally used stints to treat CCSVI is no longer recommending that they be used.
My Dr. ( who performed CCSVI) was one of the Dr.s who invented the original stint. He is working on developing a stint that will work in veins. But for now he will only use angioplasty to open blocked veins. Which is much safer as of now. Yes you have a 50% chance that you veins will close back up, and you will have to have another angioplasty. But it is better than risking the stint migrating into your heart as it did with one Standford patient. Also one last note on stents; you have to take Plavix and other blood thinners for the REST OF YOUR LIFE!!! To keep the blood from clotting around the stint. SO NO STENTS!!! NOT UNTIL THERE IS ONE FOR THE VEIN!! Thanks T
