Lightbulb Spinal AVM post ops survivor.

Dear Friends,

I'm a 48year old male and was diagnose with Spinal AVM in Jan 2008. I had opted for open surgery after embolization procedure failed in September 2008. Thank God, I had ops done on 28th Jan 2009 to remove fistula at T7~T8 lumbar area.

I was discharge 2weeks after surgery and was recommended a fortnightly rehabilitation to aid recovery. Though my condition is much better after surgery and had anticipated a quick recovery but a month after discharge I still have feet numbness and leg burning sensation. I was given a month more of medical leave as rehab doctor found my walking still unstable.

Due to my present condition I'm required to undergo rehab with my occupational therapist, as such I look forward to anyone wishing to share their experience or professional medical advice for AVM post ops recovery.

Thanks in advance your kind advice.

Sincerely,
JAMIL SAID

Hi, JS! It's good to meet you! Welcome to the forums. I wish I could discuss your AVM PR with you, but I'm afraid it seems all we have in common is that we are both 48 year-old males. I wanted to welcome you, though. Good luck and best wishes!
