‘Amputating My Arm Has Been The Best Decision So Far’ -Nigerian AVM Survivor Celebrates One Year Of Amputation

Nigerian AVM survivor, Maryann Michael is celebrating one year since the amputation of her arm.

AVM or arteriovenous malformation is a disorder of the brain causing abnormal arteries and fistulas.

Prior to her amputation in 2019, she had eight surgeries and corrections to control the malformation however her condition worsened.

She was then advised by doctors to amputate the arm and she caught the attention of many during this period.

She wrote on Thursday via her Instagram page:

God has been faithful .

I remember saying this amputation would make me happy, and it did make me happy and amputating this arm has been the best decision so far
.
Now I live a pain free and no bleeding life.
.
God is indeed merciful .
.
Happy amputee .
