... cerebral angiogram to see if I am a candidate for stints in blood vessels. Anyone have any comments! I am not open to a shunt I don't think??? Just fed up :(
Yes, I have a comment. Why would you not want an angiogram to find out what is going on? My husband has had one & it's not a painful thing to do. They inject dye & take some picutres is all. It gives the doctors a better idea of what is going on in the blood flow in your brain I think I would want to know if I had your problem. I guess I don't understand what you mean by being fed up. Sometimes it takes a bit of testing, & medications to get a problem under control I'm sure you don't want to have a stroke or anything. If you are not happy with your doctor or the care you are receiving you have the right to a second or even a third opinion. I hope you do ok, & get that angiogram as soon as possible. Best wishes to you...
