Has anyone with Neurological AVMs experienced problems reading & comprehending post treatment??
My AVM is located on my language center of my brain - causing a lot of issues when i read. Before i seize, i can't read. I can't understand what word is in front of me. I had my cyber knife treatment Sept. 2013. After treatment, 95% of the 6cm AVM has been OBLITERATED! (WOOOO!!!!!)
However, I have started experiencing symptoms again...
My job involves a LOT of transcribing and notes for meetings in general. I just can't understand what is being said most of the time...it's like someone is speaking to me in Swahili! I have to read very slow and repeatedly. When i read a lengthy sentence, or listen to one - i get completely lost. i lose track of the point, and general direction/context. (I have reviewed what i'm writing so many times and even i still lose what's said...)
I'm terrified this is a side effect of treatment or regrowth that will continue, and even worsen...I'm worried for my job, and general day to day..
Have you had this issue? How did it go for you, if so?
You're amazing humans and damnit, we're warriors! :D
