Length of treatments

For most AVM patients, do the various treatments and side effects go on for years???

Unfortunately, Yes. For some, maybe not all.

I am 11 years post surgery and have alot of side effects still but my AVM is now growing back so now I have new problems again.
I never got rid of all of the side effects or left overs and never, never got rid of the headaches, they only changed some.
They did, however, mellow for a couple of years before my pregnancy aggrivagted my AVM .
There is always hope and I do know that there are some people who do not have too many side effects or problems. They are the lucky ones!

I am 1 1/2 years post surgical and I still suffer from side effects. I am lucky though because even with my side effects I was still able to return to work. Its a learning experience for everyone. I do hope that one day the side effects will go away.
