I’ve about accepted the AVM & started to work it into my sense of my body, even beginning to get a strange sense that my right hemisphere feels odd, wrong, slightly shrunken. I’ve been a little bit paranoid about even which side to sleep on. Silly things.
Now… who designs scan viewing software so that, in cross-section, the view is from body-to-crown so that the right hemisphere is on the left side, and left hemisphere on the right?! Someone very successful, apparently! All this time, after all that projection of the discomfort & alienness onto the right side on my head, I was wrong! I had to laugh.
It’s left sided - I read my scan upside-down. I feel relatively very positive, as I see my consultant has graded me as Spetzler-Martin I. This is a relief. I’m tempted (perhaps a bit hastily) to think of myself as in the lower-leagues of AVM world.
I have a bad cold now, and the constant sneezes were quite difficult to relax about.
I hope that you are well!
