I'm 53 years old and have been having headaches for quite a while. My GP has referred me to have a check by a neurosurgeon who has ordered me an MRI.
It resulted that I have an un-ruptured aneurysm. I then had an ct angio scan which again confirmed that I have an 8 x 7 aneurysm.
Now I am waiting for an appointment to have it coiled or clipped. I fear this prolonged waiting from the hospital to have this done as I suffer from headaches and at times these headaches are terrible.
However doctor told me that these headaches has nothing to do with the aneurysm and I have to wait as there is a waiting list. I wonder why all this unnecessary waiting and maybe when it ruptures doctors will consider my case as urgent!
