Just found this site, I am coming up to the 2nd anniversary of my 14MM unruptured aneurysm, right para ophthalmic which I had coiled and stented, still improving slowly but I am not the same as before op with vision,balance,memory and fatigue issues.

Welcome Nettiefour I’m from the west Midlands as well x

Wow good size Annie 14mm at least Your still improving must be hard.

I’m about to have my first appointment next Tuesday so starting to feel a little nervous

But I’m sure your experience of having surgery will help many

Sorry to hear your having problems, I suffer from anxiety and depression have done for years, since aneurysm my GP has increased my medication which has helped a lot, have you asked for help with this.

I am waiting for my 2year Mir, angiogram but told they are running g behind schedule so it will be early next year. Hope you get your results soon x

Wow 14mm. You're trumping most of us on here :) I'm sure you will continue to get better. I've been reading about how the brain can relearn . Please keep us informed of progress

Do not lose hope. I believe you will keep improving. The brain is amazing and can relearn. It must be frustrating as it takes time. Be patient but keep forging ahead :)
