AVM Survivors Network

One year Later

Well it’s been one year since my AVM surgery on my thoracic spine. Things are still kind of rough but making little progress. Pushing forward with physical therapy 2x a week. Still have numbness and extreme weakness from the waist down. Its been a battle but I believe Its a battle that could be won. Still have to self cath to urinate which is still a bummer. Working on walking without a walker or cane but balance is still off and coordination is weak. So if anyone has any helpful tips im open to anything hit me up. Wishing everyone the best and speedy recovery.

Gary, Seems like good progress to me, Any progress is good, Keep aiming small and you'll keep hitting targets :) , Take care
