AVM of the lower left Leg...Need HELP!
I am a 29 year old male who has AVM of the lower left extemity (leg) and AVM of the left side of the scrotum. I have had two surgeries for the scrotal AVM that consisted of embolization and resection. So far so good.....
I was born with a birthmark that runs from my pelvick region down the inside of my left leg, ends about three inches up from my ankle. Recently I had a procedure done to remove a small open lesion on my lower left calf that was caused by a break down of the skin and would not heal due to AVM (1/2 inch). It is now 2 months post op. and the area that was resected is now not healing. It seems as if it is growing faster after the surgery.
I was woundering if there is any information you have that can help in my situation. Are there any specialists in the Los Angeles, CA area, any information or direction would be greatly appriciated....I have attached a photo.
Thank you in advance.
