I Have An Avm And Have Haad Gamma-knife Radiation Treatment Twice

I was diagnosed with an AVM at age 17. A year later  i had Gamma-knife radiation treatment. About 8 months later i had more Gamma-Knife done. A few months later my brain began to swell causing me to lose function in my left hand and caused my left foot to get Drop Foot. I also became incontient and lost all control and had to wear diapers. I am now 19 years old. After serious potty training i became un incontient. Unfortunatly i still have no control over my left hand. The doctors say its a 50/50 chance it may come back or it may not. I'm hoping and praying to god it does come back.
