Hi, My doctor has discovered that I have a vein in my neck that is partly blocked. Has anyone on here have or had the same problem?


Thanks, John

John....are you sure he/she didn't mean the Carotid Arteries and not a Vein as the Carotid Arteries are very suceptible to atherosclerosis and not the Veins unless it's a Clot althought that usually happens in the Legs i.e. Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT.

not directly, but have had patients with arterial blockages. I think that is what you are describing. Take it seriously - we need your reporting skills!

My dad and step-mother had carotids cleared. They were hospitalized over night and out by 11 am. They didn't realize how much they'd slowed until they had the surgery and had their energy back.
