My doctor told me I’ll be having 1 or 2 embolisations, most probably followed by radiation. I’d rather skip the radiation but they say with such a large AVM there would be leftovers that would have to be taken care of. If anyone here has good or bad experiences with the same, I’d sure like to hear from them!

It has dawned on me by now that there’ll be quite a lot of leftovers after the embo :0
Hope I won’t have to get one of those halo’s screwed in my head!!!
