Brief Answer:
Please see detailed answer.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting on HCM,
Have seen reports.

One injection every week for 6-8 weeks would be given then for couple of months you would be under observation if required again a cycle would be repeated.
No one can tell you perfect time for full recovery because normally it could take upto 10 injections a year however recovery depends from person to person.

Generally treatment is effective in 60-70% of cases.
Cost of therwpy would be almost 2500 rupees per injection.

A CT brain and Echo heart can be done to rule out possibility of any thrombus.

Thanks!

I have a blurry spot in my right eye. I can t focus well when reading. Reading glasses help a bit. I still test at 20/20 vision , but it takes a while for me to focus. I had complete eye tests and blood workup. I was diagnosed with retinal vein occlusion. We have ruled out high cholesterol . I do take med for that. I was tested for factorV and found no risk of that. My blood pressure has been running higher than normal and I am in the pre- hypertension range most of the day. I have 2 questions, How can I find out how it was caused? and how can it be treated, or is it permanent?
