Hi my name is Tara and I am 25 years old. I had a hemmhorage in my left temporal lobe close to my sylvian fissure in August 2014. I just had an embolization and craniotomy on January 13th and 14th. The doctor I had was amazing and from Mayfield clinic in cincinnati where they specialize with brains and spines. I hope I can help someone and I am still recovering very much from the surgery. I am happy to be a part of this group. God bless us all :)

Hi, I live outside of St Louis(O'Fallon Mo) I just got the result of my MRI this past Thursday. I don't have any other information other than I have a cavernous malformation. I have a neurologist appointment on April 4th. Any advice would be much appreciated since I'm just playing the waiting game.
