So I had an appointment with my neurosurgeon to discuss my last angiogram today. A lot of my AVM has gone now thanks to my gamma knife treatment in 2012, however there is still a small portion left.
My options now are 1) more gamma knife surgery (the benefit being minimal risk) or 2) open head surgery (the benefit being that the AVM will be gone right away).
I've not had conventional brain surgery before, so I'm just asking those of you out there who have had it; what was your recovery time from the surgery? Did it make you worse off? Are you glad you had it?
