Welcome to the board - no one really wants to be a part of
But, it’s amazing that it exists
I was slightly over double your age when my dAVF/AVM ruptured. I lost all sensory functions & motor skills. My AVM was obliterated 100% in first attempt - what made me so special/lucky? I don’t know yet
I had to relearn how to walk, had excruciating pains in the area where the hemorrhage occurred for months post embolization.
When I was released, I could only stand for a few minutes at a time. Few weeks, I could walk for a few minutes at a time - before the feeling of “I’m gonna fall over” came in.
I was not allowed to lift more than ten pounds for 3 months. By mid month three, I was able to lift ten pounds per arm about a thousand times per day.
At the end of month three, I was able to do about two pushups. I started putting together a home gym(since COVId still had everything mostly under lock down).
By month six I was back in the gym - face mask & all. I was barely able to workout for short bursts before I had throbbing or a dizzy spell come over me.
Fast forward to now, two years & two months later - I’m at my pr on my bench. I’m still trying to be safe as possible, but fitness has been a huge part of my life. And, according to my neuros my extreme physical abilities is what brought me back this intact, this fast.
At this point, I’d call myself having zero deficits
Do what you can, you had a much bigger operation than I have. Way younger, so you will recover at a different rate. Push yourself, but not passed the point of safety. One injury will set you back way too long < it’s not worth the effort. . . Listen to your body, very carefully. 12 months for someone post resect I would equal to me post embolization at about one month, if that - and, that’s just an opinion & guesstimate
Are you on any anti seizure meds, BP meds, etc.?
The road to recovery isn’t a direct path, unfortunately. I’ve had set backs, to where I couldn’t workout for weeks at a time due to stroke like symptoms caused by damage to my CNS < thankfully that was the only cause
