Nov 3, 2016 · Adjusting to life with temporal arteritis in Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR)

Not sure if I’m posting this in the right place or not, but I have a question re a bilateral biopsy I had on 2 arteries near my temples. The doctor said he tied them off and took the middle sections. He said that I can do without those arteries operating because I have enough others that supply the blood to those areas of my face and head.

My question is this, what happens to the blood that is flowing to that artery that’s been tied off? Where does it go if it’s not possible to complete the flow?
