Hello all! I’m currently just over two years past when I had my AVM removed via a craniotomy. I had a one year follow up including an all clear given via catheter angiogram.
My question for you all today is; does anyone have any knowledge on how HRT (hormone replacement therapy), specifically Estrogen, Anti-Androgens, and Progesterone can have on a post surgical brain that’s had an AVM removed? Could it potentially cause a regrowth, or weaken the vascular structure in the area?
My craniotomy was preformed first with embolization (onyx) to seal off the AVM’s feeding tubes, and then with total physical removal of the AVM a day later, confirmed to still be removed a year out with no further scans since. The only side effects were a small hematoma left over in the surgical site from the procedure itself, which caused a seizure, resulting in temporary right side weakness which persisted for a few months after the surgery.
Thank you all!
