I am very concerned about my Grandson. He had a series of seizures last week and was transferred to a truama hospital. They diagnosed him with avm and upon discharge said that they will see him in two weeks to consider what treatment to pursue. He has been home for several days (4) actually and he has had a headache and sleeps all the time. This cannot be normal? My daughter has called the numbers they gave her but so far she needs to speak to the neurosurgeon. He is in charge and all the Drs have their opinion. He is not functioning and no way can he return to school. Can anyone shed some light?
Thank you

He probably had a bleed. We usually like to let the acute eevent settle down somewhat before treating. Treatment can be either with surgery or with radiosurgery. Coils can sometimes be injected or even glue, but there is concern about the permanence of these solutions. At any rate, this is neurosurgical disease and he should get better. When he does, treatment decisions can be made.
