Long-term effects after cavernous hemangioma removal
I had a craniotomy done in October of 2005 to remove a cavernoma. I had only been diagnosed for 2 months before surgery, it was fairly quick. I was losing feeling in my left leg and arm, I had daily headaches, clumsiness and short term memory loss. The surgery was a success although I was temporarily paralyzed in my left side. That problem corrected itself over time. 13 years later and I still have horrible memory and I’m extremely clumsy. I have intractable migraines that seem to be very hard to treat. The top of my skull where the bone flap is still hurts at the slightest touch. It is oddly raised and terribly sensitive. Has anyone else experienced any of these side effects years after surgery?
