My doctor is concerned about operating on my asymptomatic and so far unruptured AVM located in my right parietal lobe. As he puts it “you look so good now” he doesn’t want to operate to remove it and cause a deficit because of the operation. Based on the size of the AVM as well as this nice vein it drains into that is apparently larger he feels that my risk of having a bleed is low.
I am going in for a functional MRI in September and he called me today as he wants me to go see a neuropsychologist for testing to determine if i have any deficits that may be related to my right parietal lobe.
We are also going to speak with the doctor that does radiosyrgery at the end of September to see if he feels i am a candidate.
