Default how is your facial avm now?

It has been a while since you posted. Did you do any procedures with Dr. Yakes? How is your avm? My son, age 19, has been battling a facial avm for 7 yrs. Started on his upper lip, had a couple of excisions, it came back above his lip, had embolization by Dr. Berenstein followed by surgery by Dr. Waner in 2006, then small persistence became recurrance in cheek, had 2 embolizations with alcohol direct and indirect punctures in summer 07, but now is not looking good again. Waner still thinks he can cure with surgery, but I am confused. He thought he got entire nidus last time too. Just wondering what your experience has been.
