Guest Caz41 Posted October 6, 2009 Share Posted October 6, 2009 Hi Everyone, I just found this website and wondered if anyone can advise. My Mother had a Subarachnoid Hemorrhage in Jan 2007. While she was having her routine follow up at 2 years, she was told that the aneurysm is now 20% full again even though she has coils in place. Consultant says they are not going back in again and I'm wondering if this is because of her age as she is now 70 years old? She is now living with this time bomb as she calls it (don't know if the consultant said this to her or not) and is just waiting for it to completely refill I guess and subsequently burst again. On her recent birthday she thanked the family for the lovely meal we took her for, then mentioned that this may be her last one and she was glad she got to 70!! Has anyone here had their coils done again a few years later? Are they more likely to repeat the procedure if you are younger or do they consider it not worthwhile regardless of age? Appreciate any replies/advice and hope you are well today. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
