I am 22 years old and three years ago I was diagnosed with arteriovenous malformation of cerebral vessels (CODE: Q28.2). I have an arteriovenous malformation in my spinal cord (vertebrae column Th5-Th7). Myelopathy.
My surgery was completed 3 years ago.
Type of surgery: Endovascular (total) embolization or occlusion of head and neck vessels (Code: 39.72).
One of the main symptoms I’ve experienced is muscle atrophy (in particular my right leg was a bit atrophied and looked skinnier than my left leg) + foot drop.
People around me notice that I tend to limp sometimes due to the muscle weakness in my right leg. So I was just wondering would a foot drop brace help me fix that issue or are there any other treatments I should consider?
Thanks in advance!
