On youtube there's a couple of videos by Neil Martin from UCLA. He talks through the types of surgery and, most interestingly, the rationale for treatment. In the USA they seem more keen on clipping but I think it's still useful videos on the decisions surgeons make. Usually no treatment is recommended due to size or shape of the aneurysm. Certainly in the UK the view seems to be caution and monitoring and then only doing surgery if changes happen...but that's just my impression!
I'd suggest in the first instance putting questions to your GP and seeing if they can get answers from the neurologist. That's how I've done it...though I'd have preferred to actually see my neurologist!!
Hello Brian....thanks for getting in touch. Great to hear that you are making good progress.
Take care, and as always, be kind to your body and brain in these early days.
Oh...and make sure your `good lady` is well looked after too! She has had her own emotions and anxieties to contend with during your hospitalisation and recovery.
Thanks everyone for your advice, I would like to say that I'm recovering extremely well and my life is slowly returning to some normality whatever that maybe. I still think myself very lucky and without the nagging wife who persuaded me to go to A&E I wouldn't be here .
Thanks again for the support.
