Radiation Treatment

I had a angiogram on the 2nd of July and today my doctor said he thinks radiation treatment will work best, any thought on radiation? I have been given very little info about my AVM only that it is on the back right side of my brain. I was hoping they would just remove it and be done.

Misty, we have a radiosurgery subgroup -- just click on "Groups" at the top of the page to find it. You can read through past discussions and comments to learn more about members' experiences with radiation.

Thank you so much.

I’ll be having radiation done too! From what my surgeons told me, its the fastest recovery time and is the safest way to perform the surgery. In this case, they won’t hit anything major that could affect your vision, memory etc. My AVM is on the left back side of my brain. Basically its the easiest, fastest and safest!
