    Interesting idea.

    I took the diagnosis from the diving docs at the chamber, who were certain it was a bend. Each treatment improved me , which is a pretty good indicator.

    It took a while, but I am diving again. I am depth limited, due to the likely PFO, but at least I am diving. I will see if I can get fixed at not too high a cost.
