Aueurysm surgery

My mom has aneurysm diagnosed. There are actually two of them, one on the top of another. The small ones, which is about 6mm, is close to the post communication artery, and the big ones, which is 9mm large is connected to the small ones by a narrow neck. During an emergency treatment, the doctor had coiled the big one and left the small one because a support was needed to coil it, and the doctor was unable to do it during the time. What are the chances for the 6mm aneurysm to be enlarged in the future? And what’s the best treatment for her to deal with the small aneurysm, coil or clip it, consider her age of 68? What could happen during the recovery if she has cerebral surgery to clip it?

Thanks,
