Had my visual field tests at the hospital today and felt like my vision progress deserved its own post. To look at the rest of my embolisation story check out this post:
So as you may know, before my embolisation, I already had sight loss due to brain damage to my left occipital lobe. This was due to my aggressively high flow AVM starving it of blood supply.
Here are the pre-embolisation visual field test results:
Then I had my embolisation where I suffered further tissue damage from a stroke during my op and additional sight loss due to excessive swelling:
Now I am swelling free, this is my sight now which is what I am left with due to tissue damage:
At this point 5 weeks post embolisation I am now confident to go out unattended, without any aid. I would not say I would be comfortable traveling a great distance or unfamiliar locations but still very happy with progress.
Happy with my sight progress too!
Free to ask me any questions
Best of wishes,
