Kevin I agree with everyones response to get another opinion.My daughter had surgery in Boston with Dr.Scott. He is not just an awesome Dr. but a very careing and wonderful person too.He truely cares about his patients. Kathleen was diagnosed in Jan. last year and by the time she had surgery she had already had 3 strokes(one on the way tothe hospital for surgery).Because she was not stable at the time of surgery( at this point she was in desperate need of the surgery) her outcome was much more tragic.She suffered 2 more strokes between surgeries.One left her with no use of her left side.We were proceding quickly but it turned out to be not quick enough. I am sharing this so you will know that your instincts are right. Now is the best time for surgery becasue she is STABLE.Good luck in your research please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions I can answer. My husband and I were obsessed with finding all we could about this disease.By the way Kathleen has had no strokes since the surgery.She is almost walking again too!!!Were you told any precasutions to take for her?We were told that it is very dangerouse for her to become dehydrated or hyperventilate. Is your grandaughter on asprin?
