    A thrombosis is a piece of something in your blood stream (plaque, tissue, fat,) that has become dislodged and is now blocking an artery or narrowing it, diminishing the amount of blood flow flowing through the artery.  This is very dangerous in the brain (a stroke) or around the heart (myocardial infarction).  Stenosis is the actual thing that is being blocked (in this case the artery) or narrowed. Thrombosis is always in the arteries and to do with blood flow.  However stenosis can involve any structure in the body.  We often hear stenosis as it refers to the narrowing of our spine as it surrounds the spinal cord, causing pinching and often lower body symptoms.  A thrombosis can lodge within an artery and then cause stenosis in that artery so no blood can get through.  I hope this helps!

    What type of stenosis?

    Why would they cover up? Nowadays  doctors will answer your questions and explain points that you say that you do not understand. If not change doctors.

      Hi derek76 well the medical staff have been trying to make out my injury was a blood disorder with the doctor jumping all around his office i had x factor blood which i hadn't,it dosen't say what stenosis but i had stents put in shoulder,then i had a pontine stroke all after a frozen shoulder & neck injury and after the stroke i had my leg amputated now the public hosp didn't get any info from my doctor or the private hosp about my injury which realy makes me mad i relied on them to let them know as when my fingers turn black it felt like someone was pulling out my finger nails so i was able to sit down and talk to them about a injury that happened 7 months before hand. 

      I hope you can understand I feeling down at the moment and a little bit angry. because I did homehelp for four years and look after my small child while she was at primary before that i was a copy typist for 14 years and now i'm disable person and its hard.
