My semi-annual MRI was performed on 10-29-10. Now,... I have a follow up appointment with my neurosurgeon on 11-03-10, to obtain the results of the prior HC (high contrast) MRI.
I would like to ask for any input/suggestions/advice on what questions to ask my neurosurgeon. I will also request my digital file on my AVM.
In other words,...
Current size of AVM ?
Any change in status of AVM?
Condition of AVM?
I know what my treatment options are, (embolizations, invasive surgical procedures/crainiotomy, etc,..etc,...) should I go that route. But I would like to know more about "Cyber-Knife",..."Proton treatments",... and other surgical non-invasive procedures. Yes I have researched,...but input from fellow AVM survivors would be a great benefit,...with both pros and cons, after effects and recovery times.(ie) the good,..the bad,..and the ugly. (no offense to Clint Eastwood,...lol)
So,...to all my AVM Survivor friends,....your help please.
My sincere thanks in advance,....
