My partner reviewed her MRI with her family physician today and then she was referred to a specialist. Her family physician said it was fortunate that the AVM was discovered before any bleedings occurred. Symptoms so far have been headaches only.
As her partner, I am worried about her health and also I want to be prepared for the circumstances that we might encounter. I have done quite a bit of research this afternoon and eventually found this community. I understand what AVM is and the treatments that are currently available but I want to learn more to help my partner to recover.
- What are the precautions we can take to minimize the chance of rupture?
- What are the urgent symptoms that require immediate medical attention? Do I need to bring her to ER if she has severe headaches?
Thank you for your time everyone. I truly wish everyone and their loved ones all the best in the recovery process.
