Multiple Intracranial stenosis (Atherosclerosis )

Posted by @tetemohamed, Dec 13, 2016

Hello everyone here
I have joined this group, coz my love suffers from Atherosclerosis. It is tough time for us. I need to talk to people who has dealt with Intracranial stenosis
I have a question. He was responding medicine before(70 percent)but after changing his medicine his percentage decreased(last time it was 40%) so he changed his medicine again to the 1st one. We are waiting results frok MRI. I am so worry, is everything gonna be ok?

Hi Tetemohamed, welcome to Connect.
I’m going to bring @caregiver49 and @sue60 into this conversation because they may have some experience to share with you.

I found this clearly written information about Intracranial atherosclerotic disease from the University of Michigan to be helpful http://bit.ly/2h0IEjW. Because Intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD) is a major cause of ischemic stroke, I thought you might also like to wish to watch this video and join the discussion here on Connect

Let’s talk stroke prevention with Thomas Brott, M.D. http://mayocl.in/1sS5xvN

What was the reason that your doctor changed the medicine your partner was taking?

Thank you so much @colleenyoung, they were so understanding ones. I am grateful for your care))
He changed it coz the 1st one(which he keep using now)has to be used once every month, doctor said the 2nd one, u have it once every two month so it was improved one, but it didnt show a good result on him.
We changed the medicine, i hope results will be like before…

We got the results of MRI today, it showed 38% (((( The doctor said it is due to medication changing. His body should get used to the medication.But he said he isnt sure.He cant guarantee.We donna what to do(((( is it better to operate? What is waiting us after surgery? I wish to talk to people who has been operated.Has experience about it. We are desperate.Should we take a risk and not operate? Coz it is multiply Intracranial stenosis so after surgery we donna what is waiting us…
