Hello everyone, new to the group and this site. Will try and take baby steps and find my way around here.
HI Jennifer I have a spinal avm at T11-T12. I have had it treated by Dr. SPetzler in Arizona. I have had my avm embolized many many times and also have had it surgically removed. I would be happy to talk to you about my procedure and how it went. You can accept my friend request - or read about my story on my webpage at sherimelandersmith.com. We can also correspond through email, just answer my contact page on the web. I hope things go well for you. It is not an easy road. I am here to help or listen if you need someone.
I don't know whether Russia has pain specialists as in the US, but if you have them, please consult one, Max.
I use also Norco aka Vicodin, but unfortunately 5-8 months and you become addicted, hooked... What to do in the future? Morphine?

My craniotomy to remove my AVM was early in the first month of the year, but at first I could not walk at all and many who had the same operation I am sure had the same problem. After two months in the hospital I was able to use a…
