Giant Aneurysm was discovered after a blow to the head, by a wing mirror of a bus. Neuro Doctors feel, aneurysm has grown over a ong period of time, but cannot say if it was made bigger by the blow the head. However, I had no physical symptoms prior, to the accident. Since then, I have had persistent headache and pain behind the eye.
Neuro sugeons at Kings College, are reluctant to do surgery, since they feel it poses significant risk, if not death a long term stroke. I had an ballon acclusion test for endovascular treatment, however. But the artery which was temporarily blocked off, did not seem to resume blood from else where quick enough, which meant endovascular treatment could cause a stroke. They mentioned a bypass, but again, due to the size an location of the aneurysm, they feel poses significant risk. So it`s a catch 22, treating or leaving it. More keen to just leave it, as it could be years before it erupts, which is the gardest part, as theres no telling. An considering its already large, its more risk.
Its quite scary for my family. An thinking of seeking a second opinion. If you`ve had experiences with this type, I`d be so grateful if you could relate. Thanks x
