My Story of Multiple Brain Aneurysms by macristi


In May 1991 I underwent through extensive distal aortic descending surgery because doctors found a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm. In 2008 I had a big headache and I went to the hospital. After extensive tests and an arteriograph revealed one aneurysm of the left anterior choroidal and bilateral PCOM infundibulum. Also, I was diagnosed with Fibromuscular Dysplasia. I underwent a surgery with clipping.

In 2012, I went to Colombia to visit my mother and I had again a painful headache and a cerebral angiogram showed two aneurysms and had another brain surgery for aneurysm wrapping of the right posterior communicating artery and wrapping of the right anterior choroid artery.

Last March 11, 2013 I had another headache and through an Angio Arterial Head and Neck founding the 2.5mm aneurysm half dome shaped which arises from the right internal carotid artery just proximal to a fairly large 3 mm infundibulum associated with the right anterior choroidal artery original.

The doctor told me that is better to undergo for periodic surveillance.

This situation is affecting me not only physically but emotionally too. I am not working right now and I do not have medical insurance.

Finding this site and sharing with others with similar experiences is so great!
