I have a cavernoma in the L temporal lobe with multiple bleeds. Should I be worried about it bleeding again?

Posted by otownmama

It is causing small seizures and slight deficits.  My neurologist acts like it's no big deal and won't bleed again and recommends anti-convulsants.

I have one in the L temporal lobe as well with multiple bleeds.  It's my understanding it can bleed again.  If the cavernoma has been there all our life....then the bleeds are few and far between effectively.  And each bleed isn't causing major problems like a stroke does.  Is surgery not an option?  Mine is apparently operable, so that's the route we are exploring.  Am trying to get info about the recovery, etc.  Good luck.
