Hi every one, I am new to the group. I feel really lucky that I found this plattform, and learnt a lot from you. I am from Vietnam and living in Germany. I accidently informed about my brain AVM in January 2019, after a total health check up with MRI scan in Vietnam. My AVM was 2,5x2,7 cm (after one year it is getting bigger but I am not sure about new measure), in the right post central parietal. There was no symtoms at all, well I do have migrane once or twice per year that it is. I am now turning 30, quite low blood presure, no bleed no seizure, and with this frequence of migrane I guess it was pretty lucky that I know about my brain problem. The neorologist in Hamburg told me that my AVM is too central and should not be treated, I will have to do an angiogram test soon to check if there is any problem with connecting vessels and so on.
I am now in the same problem with other unruptured AVM people, treat or not treat. I will choose to trust my neorologist. The ideas of waiting for it to rupture or treat with high risk both really scary. Plus I am planning to have my first baby in few years, which turns out also dangerous as the bleeding risk for pregnant women even higher.
I will also discuss this to my neorologist, if dealing with AVM first and then having baby a better option, because then it will be safer that it will not bleed in the future. Probably my options will be embolization or gamma knife, will take like 3 years.
Is any one here, or anyone you know has unruptured AVM and had no problem with pregnancy?
Thank you for reading and greetings from Hamburg.
