"Brain AVM"

About: NHS Tayside Ninewells Hospital / Neurology

(as the patient),

Since cut backs, I was stopped having scans on my brain. I still had a clot embedded in my brain which I have always known about. In January of 2015 I was finally giving an angiogram which was instructed by Sheffield. The neurosurgeon from Ninewells stated that I would not have another episode of a bleed, but it turned out I had a slight bleed and the bleed lead to the artery that runs to your heart. I then had to go to Sheffield for further Gamma knife treatment. It's a disgrace why doctors couldn't pick up on this.
