Born with the Bomb

Brain is a king and any malformation with it is definitely bothering. I was always proud of my super logical brain and caused a lots of pride in my life style.
Couple of months back I got my first seizure and it shook me from base. I did my CT scan which was showing 'vascular malformation' in my frontal left lobe of the brain and DSA confirmed it as 'Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM)' .
AVM is basically abnormal connection between arteries and veins. It is also called as a Bomb, because there are 20 to 25% chances of bleeding due to it and this may lead to brain hemorrhage. Brain AVMs are usually congenital, meaning I am born with it.
After lots of study and consultation we have concluded 'Embolization' treatment for my AVM, but still not confirmed... I will keep updating on it ........ Till then take care.... See you soon...
