ann_calgary Posted July 19, 2021 Share Posted July 19, 2021 Hello everyone, It has been an eventful past 2 weeks to say the least. My second SAH was in July 17th 2020. It has been very challenging but being off during the peak of the pandemic was a blessing in disguise being a healthcare worker. There were lots of ups and downs but I do enjoy and treasure my time with my now 8 year old boy and my husband. I am grateful for them and to my very supportive family and friends and of course my BTG family. Thank you all! Fast forward to July 6, 2021, I had a routine MRI and July 9th a Cerebral Angiogram which are usually performed close to the 1 year anniversary. While in recovery after my angio, my Neurosurgeon and his Fellow who performed my angio came to see me. Unfortunately, they saw irregularities in my MRI and the angio also confirmed that. I was still half sedated at this point so this is most of what I can recall. He said my aneurysm is shifting and proving to be complicated. He recommends clipping it. He explained the risks. My surgery date is September 13th. I asked what should I do or should not do while waiting for my surgery and he said nothing really. I asked the dreaded question of will it rupture and his answer was it's low probability but not zero. I thought of all my other questions after he left. I was in shock. My last MRI was in January and it was stable. How did it drastically change? I thought of giving him a call but after the initial shock I thought whatever will be, will be. My first SAH was in 2010. My second in 2020 was so unexpected and unexplainable. I thankfully survived both. I have learned not to ask the whys anymore and just let go. I am glad they caught it. It is bittersweet news. I go through waves of varying emotions but have to be strong for my boys. This too I will overcome! 💪 Also, I can't wait to rock my clipping scar. 😊 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
