Impact so far?
It's well over a month now since I had my veins re-opened at the Synergy Clinic in California and, so far, I haven't really seen any impact of the procedure. In the last six months or so I'd seen some slippage in my energy and balance symptoms and was hoping to get back all of the gains I saw after my trip to Poland (almost two years ago), but that doesn't appear to be happening. In the meantime my mobility continues to deteriorate, though perhaps that is due to the arthritis that seems to be getting significantly worse these days. Since I am on Pradax for three months (as a post-treatment "blood thinner"), I'm not allowed to take my arthritis medicine until that is over. I'm still waiting to get to see a doc about my MRIs: could the osteoarthritis in my lower back be causing some of my walking problems? It sure feels like it could be, but my neuro is on sick leave so it may take a while to find out for sure.
