wow, I can't believe that I am the only person on here with this type of aneurysm....hhhhmmmmm, should I be worried??????
you are NOT THE ONLY ONE! my Mother had the same ANEURISM Sept 12, 2009 in the midst of a hurricane and died 5 times and was in coma for 30 days, she was eventually brought by GOD back to LIFE and is here today with MUCH DEMENTIA as a result of the RUPTURE! Please keep GOOD watch on any symptom! GOD BLESS and My thoughts and Prayers are with you as you WAIT!
Hi - I have an aneurysm in the same place. finding out you have an annie can be quite unsettling. Some pointers ;-) make sure you keep your stress down - not always easy but is important. Typically, depending on the size doctors will do a wait and watch approach but not always. It does depend on where it is etc etc. Mine is about 3.5 mm and I'm on a wait and watch approach. I've read some posts on other boards where people had surgery even though they were small and a good thing they did, cause once the doctor got in there it was found that it was close to rupture. Do your homework and get informed is going to be your best approach. Going every 6 months for a ct angigram sounds like a good approach but it is always a good idea to get a second a opinion irregardless. Different doctors take different approaches which is why unless you trust your doctor that you get a second opinion.
I wish you well.
Dreambabee, I'm so sorry about your Mom, thanks for the reply and for your prayers.
crwstar, thanks for all the info, I will take everything you have said into consideration and will, indeed, stay on top of it...I was really beginning to think that I was a freak of nature!! lol My maternal grandmother dies of a stroke at age 36, and I bet it was an aneurysm...that would have been back in the '30's and down south, so anything was possible, I know that they were poor, so, no big town doctor there...
No, you are not a freak of nature ;-) There are many of us - this board is just beginning to get a few regulars. I am a little over a year into watching and waiting on the annie I have. I go in this week for another test to take a look at it. I wish you all the best. If you have any other questions pls ask.
Do you, or did you, have any symptoms that led to your diagnosis or was it found by accident?? Do you have any symptoms now?? Thanks for your info!! ;) joyce
