AV Malformation

In 1978 I was a 14yr old girl that was diagnosed with an AV malformation that ruptured causing a grapefruit size blood clot on the left side of my brain.  I was forturnate to have brain surgery at Boston Children's Hospital.  I was told I didn't need physical theraphy after being paralyized on my right side because they were able to clear the blood causing the stroke.
