I’m new here. I’m on the toronto area and have an appointment with Dr. Simons at Toronto Western Hospital for my left forearm. I don’t know know much about the size other then it’s big.
For those who have had the embolization procedure what is the recovery?
Is there a hospital stay? I know one american hospital had their staying overnight but not sure if it would be the same around here or if it’s outpatient.
Is it likely I’ll need more then one embolization?
Anyone have anything done by Dr. Simons?
So glad I found this site! There is very little info out there and what there is focused around brain avm’s.
I’ve had four embolizations done by Dr. Rosen in nyc in my left forearm/hand, as for my hand I was typing lightly within a week with steady discomfort (you get used to it quick) if it’s just your forearm you will probably feel discomfort if you’re contacting your fingers but that’s all I felt, you may need a few depending on the size/type of avm, hope this helps let us know how it goes, best of luck
