  1. Thanks Daffodil. I will let the consultant know what's going on and suggest it may be wise to get this done sooner rather than later. Even if it is just for my peace of mind. I'll report back after my video appointment. Lynne x
  2. Karen Thank you for your reply. I wasn't sure if I was just being OTT with it. I'll write down my questions. I hadn't thought of speaking to the GP, she is not that experienced with this sort of thing but will get the migraine side of it I would think. On the whole I'm not too bad on the stress side. I'll stop what I'm doing if I feel a headache getting worse and try to remain calm about most things. There are times though when I remember the time bomb and go a bit wobbly!!! Another cup of tea!!

  3. Hi all A newbie here. I came across this site by accident and wish I'd known about it before. I had an unruptured right sided ophthalmic aneurysm clipped 2 years ago and was diagnosed with another on the opposite side, same place, last September. They found the second one as I was still having visual problems so they investigated. To be honest I was surprised to hear I had another one but had no obvious symptoms and was told it would be treated. I was seen in December 19 and advised a flow diversion stent will be fitted which was booked for end of March 20 which of course with the current Covid situation was cancelled. I have two questions. 1) 8 months on from diagnosis I now have, and have had for some time. symptoms due to the location of the anni - vision, flashing lights, permanent head pain, dizziness. I've managed to get a video consultation with my surgeon on 3rd June after emailing him directly. I'm concerned about the development of symptoms especially as with the last one they were very keen to fix it quickly. I don't know whether to say I consider this to be urgent now? I've had no real feedback from the hospital and was just told they'd be in touch at some point. I want to make the most of this appointment so I'd like to know what others think. I believe the risks of attending a hospital are much lower now, I have no symptoms of Covid, the hospitals are beginning to see other patients. Would others push this with the surgeon? Or should I be patient and live with the symptoms and the every day fear that the anni is growing and could rupture at any point. 2) I only have experience of being clipped. The recovery was long and hard. What are others experience of the flow diversion? I'm self employed now and would rather not take a long time out. I will of course if I have to but what on average is the recovery time and the level of discomfort afterwards? Thank you in advance. Lynne
