I have been a member for some time but this is my first post. I am from the UK and had a bleed last October whilst at my holiday home in Spain. After a lot of appointments and delays I have been to Sheffield and met with Neurosurgeon, Radio Nurse, Nurse for medical and had bloods taken. I am awaiting Radiosurgery for my grade 3 AVM which is deep in my brain.
I have been left with some right sided weakness, some memory problems and terrible vision which they are still playing around with. I think I will end up with a blank contact lense in my left eye as right is my best eye naturally. Apparently I score 3 on my eye test which is borderline for surgery to try and improve.
Oh and I forgot to mention I still get quite tearful especially when I see people for the first time so this post is part of the healing process hopefully.
