Has anyone else on this site experienced an AVM in their uterus? I was just diagnosed and I need some advice.

Hi Sheila,
Thanks for your reply.
I'm sorry to hear this :(
Have you considered Dr. Yakes or tried the ethanol embolization? I have been reading that a lot of people have been cured using this treatment...any thoughts on this?
Stay strong!!

I am in Canada, but near Windsor, I have been seeing dr. Simons in Toronto a very good team there,,

Hi everyone,

I have an AVM on my right jawline. I've had embolization and surgery to remove it about 6 months ago, but I can already feel it growing back, it feels exactly like it did before surgery. I am having an MRI soon.
I'm worried that I'm going to have to have surgeries for the rest of my life....surgeries that are never going to cure it.
I live in Calgary, are there any other Calgarians in this group or anyone that could make a suggestion for a reputable doctor anywhere in Canada?
I have been reading about Dr. Yates and his clinic in Colorado. I don't think we have anything like this Canada. I would really like to go to this clinic, but I can't even imagine the cost it would be to receive treatment in the US.

Any advice is appreciated!

Hello everyone. You will notice I sent an email to all the Canadian members.

I just wanted to make sure everyone knew about the up coming


May 3rd 2015 Just in case you missed it, there is a posting in the - General discussion forum. There, you'll find all sorts of information for it. Would hate to hear that someone didn't know about it.
