Re: Carotid artery dissection?
Glen - my doctors have explained those simple facts to me, and I've done lots of research on the subject myself. What I'm trying to find are other people who have dissections to compare how theirs have been treated, what symptoms if any they have had or are having, if their dissections resolved on their own or if they had to have surgical intervention at some point, etc. I have dissections in 3 of my arteries... a stent was placed in the left front internal carotid artery but the right front internal carotid remains 70% occluded and the other is about 30% occluded. The dissections were discovered when I had a stroke in June of this year and although my symptoms have decreased I'm still experiencing some symptoms and would just like to meet others who have a similar diagnosis just to compare notes w/real people instead of case studies, online articles, etc.
