Unlikely.: Dissections usually recanalize withing 3 months. Sounds like the blood flow is routed to vertebrals now.

Yes: But it is unlikely. If you have survived one year with both carotid arteries occluded by dissections you are very lucky. If you have no symptoms you might get away without surgery. Do you have other diseases or any symptoms?
