Special: Emotional Recovery

May 21, 2024

After my recent renal dissection, kidney infarction, and iliac dissection with Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS), I wanted to know what emotional recovery was like for others after medical events. This episode features clips of people with VEDS, Marfan, and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, sharing what emotional recovery was like for them after diagnosis, major medical events and the loss of loved ones.
