I am a 45 years old male who has underwent over the years several HT procedure. Since my last procedure April 2010 I noticed en enlarged vein in the left temporal area which I believed is an av fistula. I have two questions. Will this resolve over time? If not what corrective procedures can be taken to fix it?
This is a very important point: If you had surgery with a doctor, you absolutely need to discuss any concern and issues with that doctor (especially if you had the procedure just recently). It is not because I do not want to help or I am trying to pass it along, but your surgeon knows your case and your issues the best. Baldingblog is not a place to get second opinions or get medical diagnosis.
With that being said, if you really do have a AV fistula it will not resolve on its own. Complications can include bleeding, an aneurysm followed by rupture, and internal bleeding below the skin. This can be a complication of any surgical procedure. For more information, please see:
