I had my Left Internal Jugular Vein angioplastied yesterday and have felt some good results. My hands became warm soon after the "ballooning" part of the procedure was complete. While I was on the Operating Table I had a sense of the fog lifting from my brain---and I could think clearly again. It was rather strange to be under this huge piece of medical/radiological equipment with three doctors, many assistants all around and while looking up at the ceiling have this incredible sense of: Wow, I can think well again!

I have no idea if this will last but I'm enjoying every moment of cognitive health. It's been difficult to accept a steady course of dulling of my thinking ability and that's one of the main reasons why I I decided to come to Poland for CCSVI treatment. It's been less than 24 hours since the event and I'm needing sleep so I'll sign off now:)
