Met with my cardio doctor today, back in 2008 I had a minor stroke that was attributed to a blocked left side carotid artery. Underwent an endarterectomy to have it cleaned it. Then I underwent radiation to the neck and I was moved from yearly check ups (ultrasound) of the carotids to six months, 2011 went back to yearly. Today was told arteries look good, no rad damage and no build up, see you in two years he said.

That's wonderful....every 2 years is a decent interval between visits, I'd say < src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions//smiley-laughing" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" border="0" />.  Things are getting better nearly every week for you, it seems.  Can't get better than that!

Denis,

2 years is 8 times better than 3 months (Matt logic).  I (cross my fingers) and look forward to longer periods between checkups.

Way to go!

Matt
