Default Re:AVM's treatment of avm of left leg/knee

hi. i'm a 23 yr old female from new zealand. i have had several surgeries to remove an avm from my left hip that travels down to near my knee and replace the large amount of skin taken with it. unless there is a recurrence that part is now gone, and my hip which looked like a balloon is flat. Also i no longer have the pain and constant itch that went with it. although my treatment was at times painful and often very uncomfortable i do recommend giving surgeons a chance to advise you if this is an option for you, as the end very much justified the means.
