My aneurysms

I was diagnosed with one aneurysm in 2009 had it coiled 2010 after my third mri scan 3 yrs later was told my coiled one was stable and my second one hadn’t changed . After picking myself up of the floor as I hadn’t been told I had two ,I rang my consultants secretary up and asked for app . Where I found out I did have two, anyway I saw my consultant last week and he’s consulting his team about me having second one coiled so am now waiting.

All sorts of reasons why this may have happened -it may not have been there at all on previous scans, or too small to see, or a different radiographer may have missed it. Worth finding out which though as if it is a new development you might want your team to review their planned surveillance to be more frequent.

Mine got missed...it was there on old scans but it took a review by a new hospital 5 years later to spot it.
