Post AVM anyone with words of wisdom

Hello fellow readers, writers. I am 39 and have had 3 surgeries so far to remove an AVM from my hand. I have now been told to get into John Hopkins for Intervential Radiology. The AVM (tumor) is alive still. I just wondered if anyone has had any luck with these in Maryland area? My AVM did not become known until about 3 years ago. Well 19 years ago my palm swelled and fingers locked and the Charity Hospital in Louisiana thought it was arthritis. My hand is not discolored or anything like that but it is very painful. I fell lost as to really if there is true treatment for this? Hope someone replies! Rita
I have had 4 MRI's and an angiogram!!!
