    Like this year hasn't been exciting enough I just got done finding out but I will probably need surgery before the end of the year with regards to 80 percent occluded carotid artery on the good side that explains the short term memory loss but at least that is fixable and well it is non invasive.

    DANG, Barry. You seem to have gotten on the wrong side of ZEN. Hope it works out to be a simple operation.

    Thanks all the actual surgery is pretty straightforward aside from the fact you are stitchng together something as small as a artery instead of muscle tissue and surgery hasn't definitely been decided on yet although the prospect seem likely.

    Patient to Doctor before surgery. "Hey doc will I be able to have sex after this"? The Doctor " Yes certainly after an appropriate recover period of course". Patient, " Great doc! you are some sort of miracle worker cause my wife hasn't been giving me any for the last 5 years".

    Seriously Barry, My prayers and thoughts for smooth progress through this issue. I have seen some amazing results from treatment of these sort of issues. Once you are through it I believe you will be amazed at how much better you feel.

    My cardiologist decided against surgery taking meds to start to reduce the obstruction. Not sure whether I like that or not, would prefer to simply be done with it. Thank you all for the good wishes and prayers seems they did indeed help.

    ............................Again Thank you all, Monday is going to be another hallmark day for me, neurologist will take MRI with contrast to make sure of the initial diagnosis is correct, then surgical consult and scheduling for neurosurgery I believe I know what I have from initial diagnosis and the sooner the surgery the sooner reversal of the effects of NPH can begin.
