I am curious as to how many of you that have had an AVM rupture recovered completely.......My worry is that my brother will not be the same person he was before and that he will not be able to accomplish the goals and dreams he had been working so hard toward. It is still very early in his recovery he is currently still in ICU (day 11) He has not eaten hardly at all so they are looking at placing a feeding tube. He gets very agitated and says mean things to people which is very unlike him. Yesterday he got very agitated and had to be sedated. It seems to be effecting his short term memory the most. I guess the hardest part is the not knowing and the what if's.
