cattledog- was just curious. Seems some people are saying that theirs have not closed as planned. At least with yours, it sounds like it did, and that should give you a little less worry. Best to you.
RF1, I haven't had any bubble tests since the procedure. I think they did one during the procedure (before & after the installation), and I believe I recall them saying that there were positive results, but I was under the assumption that they would do another bubble check down the road.
Welcome!!! I hate to hear that you have not received clear concise information to help you make your choice. I personally went in for PFO tests and did not have it, so unfortunately I dont have personal experience with closure and the following recovery.
My suggestion would be to speak to your healthcare provider, they need to give you all the necessary information for you to make an INFORMED decision and to feel secure in what you decide to do.
I hope that helps some.
Please let us know how things go!!
I'm still waiting for a date for my PFO closure, I'm expecting it to be around June. I wondered what people have been told regarding flying after having the device fitted. My Neuro advised not to fly for 3-6 months but he also advised me not to have the procedure so I don't have complete faith in him (I won't mention his previous misdiagnosis etc etc!) Ideally I'd like to go away in the summer so would appreciate your experiences.
