Hi friends, I wanted to see if anyone has ever had any stoke symptoms after a embolization for your AVM. I just had my embolization and when the doctor was in there my face went paralyzed for a minute but then my sense came back. But now I haven’t been able to think normally and my speech is a little wacky. My doctor is not saying if I had a stroke or not. He says that is is just dead tissue there. and that I need to just wait 1 or2 weeks to see if I heal from all of this. I had my surgery on 8/2/2011. If anyone has any info for me please share.
