  1. Quick update: MRI from January 5th looked good. Coils are intact and are in place. 👍 It was the Head of Neuro and my Doctor who coiled my first aneurysm from 2010 that saw me this time. We asked him about the stent and he said he does not think I need it for now. He ordered another MRI and Angio for July which will be my 1st year anni-versary for my second aneurysm and go from there. It makes a world of a difference when the Doctor is straight-forward and as decisive as he was unlike the other Doc I saw in November. I know everybody is different and I trust their expertise.

  3. Hi ann_calgary I am so pleased that your MRI looked good, that must be a huge weight off your mind. It sounds like your appointment went really well, with your doctor being straight and up front with you must have given you some peace of mind. It also must mean that everything is stable if he feels that you don't need to have the stent fitted at the moment. It's good that you came away feeling at peace with what he had to say. Take care & stay safe Love Michelle xx

  4. Well, today is my 17th SAH anni-versary. Where have all those years gone? Still enjoying life to the best of my ability although, like just about everybody, the last 12 months have been hard and I think, will be hard for the next months to come. I actually found out I share this anni-versary with the launch of Facebook 17 years ago today. Wish I had as much money as Mark Zuckerberg . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Facebook#:~:text=Facebook is a social networking service launched as,Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.

  6. Hi Ann, So pleased to hear your coils are behaving as they should and the fact that you don't require a stent at the present time. Hopefully this will remain the case when they check in July. It does make a lot of difference who you see and how they come across and I'm glad you feel happier about things going forward. I'm still waiting to hear what my MRIs revealed. Hopefully I won't be waiting much longer. Take care, Sarah xx

  7. Just come out of hospital. Unfortunately my scan was delayed by 40 minutes which didn’t help. Staff were so helpful and kind. She put the head cage thing on and I couldn’t handle it so she thought what she could do instead and used a different device which didn’t come over my face. My husband stayed with me the whole time. I was crushing his hand! Unfortunately the headphones weren’t working with sound as we found out afterwards that the cable wasn’t attached. The third scan was the longest and seemed to go on forever. When that stopped I had to press the bu

  8. Thank you everyone for your replies, suggestions and kind words. I introduced myself first and then started to read through the forums and posts, there was so much information that was relevant to me, i found the answers I was looking for in there, not so much what I wanted to hear but I do understand things much better now. I especially loved the letter to my brain. Thank you
