First of all please excuse my broken English.
Here's my story, my mom had so many common AVM symptoms over the years - last 4 years to be exact- numbness in her arms and legs, pain, very low blood circulation, sudden falls. But unfortunately no one could diagnosed. And finally last January she has been diagnosed with Spinal AVM. Unfortunately the only option was surgery which we pursued. After the surgery she was paralysed under the waist. It's been 10 months that she is having heavily Physical Therapy and doctor says that it's a nerve problem and we all need to wait for her nerves to start contributing again.
Is there anyone out there who had the same problem and recover? I live in San Francisco, United States and my mom lives in Istanbul, Turkey with a living in nurse and I really need to know that it is possible for her to walk again.
Please share your stories with me I am extremely concerned and so thankful that I find this website.
