Trying to find others with Renal Artery Stenosis.
I was diagnosed with this about 5 years ago. I have had 5 (five) Angioplasties.
The last one performed on July 13, 2006, I was given a "Drug Coated Stent" apparently I'm the first in Canada.
Well I blocked that baby within a week!!
Apparently there are not many people with this disease. I certainly cannot find anyone!
I would like to hear other storys. I feel as if I'm a rare case. I cannot find anyone else who has had this many Angio's. I would like to know how you feel and your symptoms.
Also, HOW DO I FIX THIS?? Do you have a Doctor that knows what they're doing?
I'm actually considering donating my kidney. This would eliminate the need for the vein.
Talk to me, I'm so alone.
