It has been one year since I had cyber-knife treatment on my AVM in the pons of my brainstem. I had a follow up CT done this past week and the AVM is nowhere to be found! I burst into tears at the doctors office! The doctors explained that there may be some blood flow through the avm still, but it has decreased enough to the point that it’s not visible on a CT anymore. He gave me an option to have an angiogram done right away or he said I can wait one year, have another ct scan done to make sure he really can’t see anything, then do the angio to confirm. I opted to wait another year because I don’t want to run the risk of having and paying for two angiograms. Crossing my fingers that my AVM can be declared as obliterated by next year.
I feel like I have had many miracles. I’m grateful for the support this site has given me through some very tough times. Best wishes to you all!
