Hello, in Feb 2020 I had an awful headache. I went to the hospital where it was discovered that I had a small bleed in my brain. I was seen by a reputable neurosurgeon and after some tests was diagnosed with an AVM in the ambient cistern near the brain stem. I opted for surgery and was scheduled for an angiogram and possible embolization of the area in question. The surgery was scheduled at the end of March 2020 however on the exam table I was told that there was nothing to operate on. Now I seem to be left with more questions as I’m not sure whether it was a true AVM, and if so, can it just disappear? Can it come back? A lot of people have recommended I get a second opinion. Overall I do feel better. I have occasional headaches and odd sensations but it’s hard to tell if it’s related to the AVM or not. I’ve now started to get into a heavier workout regime but I don’t want to go too hard or do something to make it come back.
My question to the community is, has anyone ever experienced something similar where an AVM disappears on it’s own without treatment?
