Default Re: AVM Right Arm

Hi,

Welcome to the boards!

My names is Kristie I am 26 and have an intermusclar VM throughout my left elbow and a little bit of the forearm.
I am under the care of Dr.Wayne Yakes he is in Englewood Colorado. I have had one sclerotherapy treatment, and doing well right now with the aid of a compression sleeve.
What doctor is your son seeing, if you don't mind me asking.. What did they use when he had his embolization? coils?? or the glue?

I know how your son feels about having to give things up, I have been out of work for 6 months+ due to endless dr appts. and my job had enough, I have also fell behind in my course work as well..

You can e-mail me if you have any questions or just to vent isleskristie @ tds.net (no spaces)

Kristie
