Please share my story, maybe there is someone out there that has gone through the same and can give some advice. Where to begin..I am the eldest of 3 siblings and in July 2021 one of my younger sisters passed away from bacterial meningitis. It was so sudden. She was only 22 years old and had her whole life ahead of her. This broke my family. Then in January 2022 6 months later, I suffered a brain hemorrhage. After some investigation Dr's found that I have an AVM (arteriovenous malformation). Due to where it is located Dr's do not want to operate. They have tried to do an Embolization which was unsuccessful and I ended up having a stroke. We then opted to do stereotactic radiosurgery in June 2022. We where hopeful and for a few months all was well. Fast forward to January 2023, I started feeling my left arm and leg getting weaker and started getting headaches again. After an MRI Dr's found that I have developed a rare side effect to the radiation which is known as radiation necrosis as well as a cerebral edema. In 2023 I was hospitalized 6 times with the swelling that keeps on returning, each time my body getting weaker. I've been told there is no cure, we can only manage the symptoms through the use of cortisone. Which has a host of negative side effects as well. I now can hardly walk, using a crutch, wheelchair or walker depending on how bad I'm feeling that day. My eye site is now being affected as well as my memory. We have tried Hyperbaric oxygen treatment, cortisone and I'm awaiting confirmation from my medical aid to try another treatment which as with all the other treatments I am told there is no guarantee that it will do anything trail and error. These treatments are expensive and takes a toll on a person mentally and financially. Then at the end of 2023 my grandfather also passed away from an operation that went wrong. Already in January 2024 I have been hospitalized again and had to undergo another MRI my 10th one in 2 years. It's been 2 years of struggling to keep my head above water. I'm trying so hard to stay positive, but when everyone tells you there is nothing they can do, it becomes difficult. The funds raised here is to help with medical expenses as these ongoing treatments, medication and specialist visits are very expensive. I am thanking everyone from the bottom of my heart for any donations and help.
