So I met with Dr. Barrow earlier this week. I will have 2 surgery this month. The first one is shrink the AVM day two he will remove the AVM. I will be in ICU for the next 3/4 days after. Recovery time is 4-6 weeks. After I heal then they will approach removing the anurymus, my AVM is located at the left frontal lobe of my brain. I would like to thank this site for the education and love. You all have showed me. I was completely lost and no one understood what I was going through before joining this group. From the comments to the messages I have received have uplifted me. Of course I’m nervous but I also feel relief. Knowing I’m one step closer to the pain relief.

Please keep us posted! Just think…pretty soon you change your AVM profile status to the word Obliterated!
