Default mikethepainter how are you now?

My son is now 19 and his lip avm is now a cheek avm, despite the best efforts of Drs. Waner and Berenstein, who are great drs. We are trying to decide what to do now. Waner still thinks embolization plus surgery will give permanent good result, but that it what we thought last time too. Embolization alone gave good result but too short term (not even a couple of months before it started to grow again.) Any advice appreciated.
