Has anyone had radiation and was told that it weakened the vessels? Just wondering. I go for my second treatment the 21st of this month.
Nope. Just the opposite for us. Proton Beam Radiation (and others I think) are supposed to shrink the vessel walls and toughen them up, at least according to the two different Drs who did Chari's.
Thanks. That makes me feel alot better.
I had Gamma Knife Radiation twice; removed 90% AVM. Never had any problems myself.....
