Hi,

How are you?
Some degree of pain is common after coiling for an aneurysm but usually patients recover in about a week’s time.
I would suggest you to consult your treating doctor if you have another episode of severe pain as you may need to undergo a CT scan to make sure everything is fine.
Take care!

I had a coil for an aneurysm in February. I was at Mayo Clinic. They told me up to 3 weeks after rupture I was at risk for vaso spasms. They did ultra sounds every day. I had two surgeries for this and eventually had a shunt put in. I would be concerned if they sent me home before that 3 week period. I am doing great and was very luccky to have the best neuro docs in the world. Good luck! Susan

I have had a burst aneurysm which was coiled in Feb 2005 and then further coiled in June 2005. The coils are platinum and as such are not really metals- as in do not affect x-rays, scans, mri's, mra's. you can even go thru the airport scanners ok- I know because I have done all of this. I have very regular check ups and they have since found 2 more small aneurysms, which does concern me. I have other chronic medical conditions which I believe have impacted on all this. so you should be fine with regard to any tests you need to have- good luck
