Hi I’ve joined this group in the hope of some advice any is welcome.
My partner has been diagnosed today with a spinal AvM I believe mid back area.
The doctor said that is very rare and that if left in treated will result in him being paraplegic.
It started 8 months ago and we have been back a forth to the doctors who have dismissed it as sciatica,we went privately to get this diagnosis.
The doctor is referring him to a specialist in Nottingham to get treated urgently.Has anyone got any information on the process or results after treatment and the types of treatment?Im really worried and want to provide the best support I can.
At the moment the symptoms are getting worse rapidly to the point that he can not walk and in pain.It just effecting him waist down.He has been given crutches for now to assist him.
Stories,advice ect would really help.
