Sanjeev,

Welcome to the site! It’s good to have you with us.

We do have a number of people here with AVMs in their temporal lobe, so I hope some will chip in. Headaches or migraines are a common sign for an AVM, so some will have had similar symptoms and may still have those symptoms. But it is also possible to have an AVM with little or no symptoms. Some people’s are discovered quite accidentally.

The key is to get the cause fixed, best we can, as you’ve done. My understanding of gamma knife and cyber knife is that the progress is relatively slow. I hope some of the folk who’ve had a radiotherapy treatment can give you their experiences.

Very best wishes,

Richard
