  1. Hi Lise366! I'm just 3 weeks postoperative. It was not a straight forward recovery but I am getting there slowly. I am thinking of you and I wish you all the best. In my opinion, UK neurosurgeons are very high skilled and you will be in good hands. It is normal to be scared as I was dreadfully scared and cried non stop from October. I still feel weak. I am grateful and thank God that I can live and see my children grow. All the best and I will pray for you. Maya
  2. Hi everyone! Had open surgery. Surgeon managed to clip it but end up with some bleeding. My most trouble symptoms terrible headache, still in the hospital. On Monday they are planning to do another ct scan. So far very tough journey. I don't feel my head. I would like to say thank you for all your kind words and reassurance. Now just ask the God help me as feeling very weak. Maya
  3. Thank you very much for the reassurance and support. It is very hard to wait for my operation as I am very tired of being anxious. My aneurysm is on the paraophthalmic artery. I did a lot of research and it seems a very challenging area. I want to ask Bagpuss or Colleen or anybody who has paraophtalmic aneurysm. The NS gave 5 to 8 on endovascular and 5 to 10 percentage risk for open surgery. I am so worried. I am just completely lost. Sorry. Just getting down.
  4. Thank you very much everybody for the reassurance. It is a very scary procedure. I am trying to stay busy and keep positive for my children, but it is so hard as emotions for my children rush into my thoughts. Maya
  5. Hi everybody! Wishing everybody Happy 2017 ! Just to update ,my operation is sheduled on the 27th of January. Feeling very nervous as the first option was endovascular but surgeon said she can reach through craniotomy as well, a little bit more risk. I decided to do open surgery still don't know if right decision. Has anybody experienced craniotomy on ophtalmic artery ? Can you give me any advice please as feeling dreadful. Thank you .Maya
  6. Thank you very much Super Mario.I wish you a Happy New as well. Thank you very much for all support and encouragement for the last 2 month.I am stil on my course and manage to do my tutorial which you encourage me to continue . We didn't buy any present for children but my husband decorated very beatifully house and bought a goose which unfortunately we couldn't eat. But NHS is great they gave her so many presents she managed to share with little brother. We are lucky in UK here to have NHS and such skilled doctors. I pray to God the results come negative and we can go

  8. Thank you very much Tina and Wn for your reassuring messages. I had a letter from Consultant saying that they want to see me on 11th of January. I assume they already know which treatment to proceed with. Maya
  9. Hi everybody! I have seen my registrar last week and he mentioned that because of the shape and neck, they will probably consider endovascular treatment, but still waiting for Consultants meeting to make last decision. Can anybody give me advice please, has anyone had this treatment for ophtalmic segment aneurysm? Has anybody experienced burning sensation in the top of your head? Thank you very much.
  10. Hi Suzie. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I have my Richard. I am having tests with dye tomorrow and after they will decide about surgery. Mine is left para ophtalmic aneurysm. I was reading in the posts, some people experience poor eyesight after surgery. I am so worried for tomorrow. I had my scan and I have a very bad cough. I have had antibiotics and the doctor said we can't give any more as they think it's a virus. I am worried about my test in case I start coughing. I will let you know how everything goes. Thank you very much and wish you a
  11. Hi Suzie! I follow your posts since October when I have been diagnosed as we have something similar. You did experience headaches and were worried that time .I am very happy for you that you step forward and on the way to recovery. I am doing my nursing course still go to uni and struggle with my headache and fatigue. Sometimes think why am doing this, It doesn't make sense because I will go through brain surgery. I am so devastated as I have little kids. I would like to know how are coping with your daily activities. Thank you very much for listening.
  12. Hi everyone! Thank you very much for your warm words and reassurance. I have got a letter yesterday and I wil have dyed MRI on the 6th of December. I am counting my days and feeling anxious.I went to university last week. The lectures was so interesting everybody have fun but I was absolutely on different planet.It is so hard to concentrate. Thank you very much for all kind words and support. Maya
  13. I have had a very bad cough for a week. Yesterday went to see GP. He prescribed me antibiotics and said cough doesn't affect my aneurysm to burst or to grow. However I have read in some American post that coughing can affect aneurysm. Anybody know if coughing can trigger aneurysm. Thank you very much for all your support and time. I was a very busy woman with my children, study, doing agency job meanwhile. Now everythings changed, I am so depressed. So sorry. Maya
  14. Thank you Bagpuss. Mine is 6 7 mm. They will do something. My worries is, ophthalmic artery and I could lose my eyesight. At the moment I feel a lot of pressure in my head. If I didn't have the pressure in my head and feeling unbalanced, maybe I could concentrate on something else, but i'ts always on my mind.
  15. Hi Paul 99! Thank you so much for your letter. I will try to spend more time with the youngest children. I was so depressed last 4 weeks. Last night my little daughter said Mummy I am scared that when you go in to hospital you never come back. I know I have to be strong but it is so difficult. Thank you very much for all your support. I feel better now. Maya
