Plavix for post crani-aneurysm clipping, BUT also post RNY gastric bypass
I have two brain aneurysms:  one was successfully clipped 2/11.  The 2nd, ACom was unsuccessfully clipped (coil migrated to another artery and is real happy adhering to the wall!) April 2012.  They might have had to stent, but the bariatric surgeon felt strongly that I not take aspirin (even the baby dose) or Plavix which would have been needed.  NOW I DO have to take Plavix to keep the blood flowing nicely around that coil.

I had RNY gastric bypass in 2004, lost 120 lbs and have maintain that.  One rule:  no nsaids or aspirin, which I've obeyed.

Are any of you in the same boat?

I meant to state "coiling" in the title!  Plavix is because of the coil migrating.
