Default Re: AVM Right Arm

Hi,

I have a VM throughout the left arm, mostly in the elbow joint and forearm. I am a patient of Dr.Yakes and have had sclerotherapy and wear a compression sleeve. As far as I know sclerotherapy usually takes more than one treatment and doesn't always produce immediate results. Although many people have immediate results. I did but after about 8 weeks or so my symptoms came back letting me know I needed more treatment (which I have yet to get)
Let me know if you have any questions! I know there are some docs in Boston

Good Luck

Kristie
