Hey guys, my name is Stuart. I’m a 19 year old male from the Southeast of the USA. In late fall of last year, we discovered my AVM because it bled. I had a headache, slurred speech, double vision, trouble walking. AVM was in my cerebellum, so that makes sense.
Anyway, I’ve almost completely recovered from that event. I had an embolization which failed, and then surgery to correct it. Neuro says he got all of it. My scans are coming up this fall so we’ll see. As far as location/size, I don’t know too many details. I know it was maybe 4cm into the tissue and the doctor said it was “massive.” I’ve no actual idea of how big it was though. Maybe I can ask when I see him next.
So that’s me. It took me a while to get on here, but better late than never.
