Post embolization side effects

I have had 3 sittings of embolizations for my Grade IV AVM and it has been 2+ years since my last sitting. Now, I am getting numness on my left hand and twitchings in my upper lip and little finger. Has anyone had this experience?


@selbalu I have something called thoratic outlet syndrome that has those syndromes plus pain in my armpit and down my arm- it got worse after my stroke - since I have centralized pain syndrome my pain doctors dont want me to have the anything removed - so we are doing botox in my scalenes. plus I see many people who do have surgery still have pain.

I have about 8 months? After embolisation. Hopefully just a side effect but you might want to have it checked just in case. Good luck :slight_smile:
