Newly diagnosed AVM, have lots of questions

Hi Rachel, welcome, I had brain surgery in 98 for the clipping of 2 aneurysms and after the surgery I found out I had 2 avms at the base of my brain stem, well they have been there for 11yrs and I’m still a going. When you talk to your neurosurgeon make sure you ask questions you want the answers to, no matter how silly it sounds to you. It would be wise to write all your questions down on paper before you go to see him. I did that and my doc answered all of my questions, and believe me I had a lot, about 2 pages.

Hi all,

This post was written in Dec 08 when I first found out so some of you posting now must think I’m new but we’ve already talked on here. lol! Just fyi…
