Curiously wondering 💭?

My sis called to say doc cauterized 3-4 large AVM-arterial veinous malformations, at jct of small intestines & colon (on dad). No carcinoid found... Praise God!

I'm wondering though, could the AVM & my PCS veins be connected issues? My daughters placenta partially separated and bled her whole pregnancy (why she won't have another baby), and her daughter has a roadmap of veins showing on her leg, called CMTC (Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita). Could they all be interrelated? I'm really curious now! Anyone familiar with these diagnoses???

Hmm...perhaps a hereditary weakness of vein walls? Something like that?

That's what I m thinking Amie. They identified a gene defect on me last summer where I don't absorb b vitamins, and don't metabolize medicines.
