a quick update to everyone:
had the procedure to close the PFO last week and today I really feel great.
in all the procedure was very simple and relatively uneventful. In fact, I was
awake for most of it and was able to watch as the closure was performed.
the first couple of days I had a fairly severe headache and I have had some
pressure in my chest since the addition of the device but everything else is
wonderful. The shortness of breath, extreme tiredness, numbness, tingling,
visual disturbances and yes, even the headaches have been greatly reduced - not
gone yet but definitely lessened. I wish
I had done it a lot sooner and if I had to make the choice again - I would
without any hesitation.
time goes on I will post additional updates as to my experience and progress.
luck to all and I wish the best for all of you.
