My name’s Gustavo and I had a bleeding 2mm long on the cerebellum area and with the angiography was diagnosed the AVM, went through surgery, the embolization and radiotherapy t
The story of what happened, I was born in Brazil, sorry if happen to have some lack of English or mistakes but I’m non-native English speaker, 28 yold, I was during my stay in Australia completing my studies for about 2 years and had a total normal day, worked, drove back home had dinner and took a shower and I was just about to go to bed when I felt the terrible headache and the nausea, from there was just blank till dawn when I woke.
It was said to me that I was going to have the angiogram which was diagnosed the AVM. Well, from there absolutely everything changed, got my life turned upside down, had to quit my precious job in a good company in Australia(I’m a draughterman) couldn’t totally finish my studies and had to flight back to Brazil where my family lives for logistics and treatment purposes, moved back to my father’s house, without job and with a third world public transport which is making the lack of balance super difficult to catch a bus totally busy and if you are in a place like São Paulo you sure can expect it.
Well, I’ll be living according to the flow while I hear from the doctor that I’m AVM free or nothing else can be done.
But hey there are good points too!!!
I quitted smocking after that and I’m drinking way less now
Keeping my body healthy, eating healthy food and practising sport now turned into my goal
Sure it will make heaps difference at the time I’m older
Thank you all
