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?
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! Nicole
