Hi all, new to the group and have never done this sort of thing b4. 10 mo ago I had 2 aneurysms clipped, 1 in the circle of willis and 1 right temple. They were found when I went for a CT due to a bloody nose I had for a few weeks (totally unrelated). My Mom passed 2months prior from a stroke, I’d like to think she was looking out for me. From the time they were discovered, the 1 in C of W went from a 7 to a 10 and had started to adhere to another artery so when the Doc tried to separate it it started to bleed took 3 clips and a surgery that was suppose to be 6hrs took 8. Once finished it took me 2 days to wake up and it was causing concern. Needless to say I don’t remember the entire week I was in Hosp. or the 1st wk or 2 at home. Hands down the most scared I’ve ever been and still having issues trying to deal with it. Glad to find this sight because as much as family and friends love you they don’t truely get it, how it feels when you know your going in to have someone remove a piece of your skull and work on your brain and you don’t have a choice cause it’s do or die. I keep waiting for the day I feel like pre surgery me and can shake the anxiety, exhaustion, random emotions, and fear, along with the feeling that I should just suck it up and feel greatful. Soooo, thank you for being out there I think I needed this.
