Brain avm

hi guys just wondrring if with a drain avm u are still able to go on fair ground rides …just my kids want us to go as a family to the fair this yr and im not really wanting to just b watching x x


Hi Heather, my neurosurgeon advised me not to do anything that would jolt/knock my head or make me go upside down (because all the blood would rush to my head and thus my AVM).... and I'm afraid fairground rides probably tick both boxes :( It is difficult and frustrating to be restricted from certain activities I know, but try and see some positives from it :) Maybe you could take some pictures or videos of your family when they're on the rides? That way you'll have more memories, maybe you could save the ticket stubs as well and make a scrapbook or something from the day :) All the best xx
