I’m a new member to this forum. I would like some advice in relation to some of the side effects 9 months post gamma knife surgery. I am a 30 year old woman and I had gamma knife last year in July for my left occipital avm. I was told that the side effects vary amongst individuals.
I experienced some bad side effects to the medication (Keppra rage), dizziness and unsteadiness. I’ve since struggled with my thoughts and have experienced moments of feeling low and even suicidal. I regularly have visual disturbances which is frightening because sometimes I can’t see out of my right eye for a good 20 minutes, my vision completely goes.
I am currently having counselling and this has been helpful. Has anyone else experienced suicidal thoughts and low mood? Also I’ve noticed hair loss now which seems to be late as I had the surgery 9 months ago. Is this normal? Thoughts and advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.
