If anyone could recommend some vascular neurologists in the South east, Knoxville to Nashville area in particular I would be much obliged.

Hi Cori, yes they can regrow if all the feeders to the AVM were not sealed off. From what I read, it looked like they had gotten it all. When you talk about recovery slowed dramatically, I need to know what you mean. Did you stop walking? Has the pain increased? What has changed? Recovery is always one step forward, two steps back. I think you are an amazing girl to fight so hard for recovery and walking is everything. We would all like to wake up and not have anymore numbness or tingling, but, as long as we can regain motor function, that is what is important.

21 year old girl from Madison Ms. Stoke caused by Spinal AVM less then two months ago surgery to remove. Post op appointment coming up and I'm terrified they hadn't gotten it all. They had some confusion on if they had removed it all or not and I am concerned now that they haven't because my recovery slowed dramatically. Can they re-grow?

Noob to the site, but not the disease. I am near Greensboro, NC and depending on traffic, between an hour and a half to two hours near Raleigh/Durham. Also quite close to the VA border for any of you Virginians. I would love to meet people from all over. My surgeon is in Arkansas, so sometimes I find myself out that way ;)

Someone asked if anyone is in Broward Co. I am not sure where that is, probably on the east coast. I am in Sarasota County.

Yesterday (05/13/15) I went back to Omaha to have an MRI. The doctor said while it has shrunk some it is still there & he also sees some shadows. I will be going back in August or September for another angiogram & possibly more radiation.…
