In 8/06 I was dx'd with a 55% stenosis of the right vertebral artery at the brainstem by MRA and surgery was suggested. In 5/07 I visited my physician who again felt surgery was the best course of treatment. A follow-up CTA was done and was found to be within normal limits, without stenosis. What am I to believe? What do I do now?

Another MRA and another opinion.  Too serious to guess about.  Good luck. Sage
