Thank you

    Why not ask your GP?

      They ordered multiple outpatient tests and I don't see my doctors until next week but got the results already.

      I just saw the 49% stenosis and kinda was concerned but don't know if it's normal or not?

      I do have hypertension and take meds already for it but over the last few months I get dizzy so they ordered these. So I was hoping someone could say if these are normal for a 39yr old or not

    It is.

    I always remember what a professor at Imperial College said when I asked about having them reamed out. He said that he would not be first in line for that procedure.

    I can tell you this much, it has been my experience that physicians don't usually get

    too aggressive until stenosis reaches the 50% or greater degree.  Your right carotid

    stenosis is pretty close to that number considering it is at 49% I wish you luck with your treatment.

    Sounds to me like your results indicate there is nothing to be overly concerned about at this time.  Most specialists don't want to see any stenosis over 50%, because that will impact flow over time as it increases.
