Seenie here from Moderator Support. I received a message today from @Tariq, whose mother was diagnosed with a spinal AVM. He is desperate for support and advice for how he can best help her recover.
To give him a bit of time to figure out how to make things work here on the forum, I offered to post his profile story to introduce him to you:
Problem starting with urinal infection, she often been in troubled with it. Then we met a senior Urologist doctor in my city to cure of urinal infection but in my view he is the world worsen doctor because my mother always used to say him about symptoms which she felt which is: numbness, tingling, heavy leg, weakness on leg, constipation etc. but he didn’t bothered and just continued with urninal infection medicine over a year which never been cured. These all are very clear and visible symptoms which easily can be recognize by any doctor. He never suggested for a Neruosurgeon and treating his own expriement later which become fatal. However, I remember the day when she fell down. On 10th October 2018 morning she loosed movement, sensation of lower limbs due to spinal AVM attack. Afterthat, she undergone with surgery by an expert Neurosurgeon, as per doctor surgery went well and it takes healthy time to recover the damages. Current Situation - Gradually, she is getting sensation and movement but she is very irritated as loss of control of the urinary bladder and bowel. Can someone help me how we can overcome from it. I want to see her again back to nornal. Need your help and advice.
I have no any other story to share except my mother AVM’s. Verily, I encountered with such rare illness first time in my life which shattered me internaly to think how could this happened with my mother.
What a lucky woman Tariq’s mother is to have a son who wants to help her so much . What support can we offer him?
