i had AVM 3 years back . i had a minor bleeding in the brain. after that i went through Gamma knife treatment.it was three back.but still i am having seizures daily which last 20 to 40 seconds some time less some time more than this.i cant afford further GAMMA KNIFE or embolization..
i wana know that is it safe to leave AVM untreated as i have gone through radiations once. what precautions should be taken to avoid the further risk of bleeding.
i want to know how the seizures would be cured or stopped. and my second question is how much is the risk of bleeding is reduced after radiation.?
