My radiologist is now concerned with the amount of brain swelling I have for being 7 months post cyber knife and has suggested getting 3-4 infusions of a drug called Avastin (Bevacizumab)???
It apparently isn’t a permanent fix, more like a band-aid but will reduce most if not all of the brain swelling for a certain amount of time so I can get off the steroids in the meantime. It could keep the swelling away for good or it could come back, he said he doesn’t see it come back often but it can.This is apparently used for cancer patients but is very successful in reducing brain swelling. Has anyone heard of this? I am hesitant. I;ve never heard of an AVM patient using it either. Thanks!
