Hi everyone, this is my first post. I went to theatre yesterday for a Web or balloon coiling for a small 3mm anni. I have two, one is 6mm and has been monitored for 20 years with no change. The one they wanted to operate on was found in 2017, but had been slowly changing since 2010 when looking back at scans. I am allergic to aspirin and other nsaids, so the WEB device was favoured as no on going blood thinners are needed.
Cut to op- the WEB device was inserted and had to be removed after half an hour as clots had formed and the dr was concerned about stroke.
I am in hospital feeling very sorry for myself as I have been through the procedure but still not mended.
I'm now waiting to be discussed again at MDT so see what is next as the smaller anni still needs a fix.
