Neuro Surgeon Appointment

Hi Everyone

I went to see the neuro surgeon yesterday in Nottingham who is now sending my details to neuroradiologist to review coiling - is this normal procedure ?

He spent the first ten minutes telling me surgery complications then said it's not always first option then that because I'm only 36 they would probably operate - confused !

Thanks x

Maybe he meant the first line of approach in cases like yours is to watch and rescan to see if it gets bigger ; setting out the risks as that's what they have to do and then concluding that as you're quite young perhaps it should be addressed. .. when you see the neuro radiologist you'll get a clearer idea. Go armed with your questions :)
