8 year old has AVM in left masseter muscle

My 8 year old son was diagnosed with an AVM in his masseter muscle. We are scheduling to have the muscle removed. Can anyone tell me what we can expect with his recovery? What is the time frame we’re looking at, what’s the pain like, etc.? The more information I can gather, the better I can help my son. Thanks in advance for your help!

I wish you and your son the best, Amy. Hopefully someone will respond that has experience with this or something similar. You may be interested in joining extremity AVMs in ‘groups’ above.

Great idea! Thanks for the tip. I didn’t know about that group!
