DebbieMcKenzie Posted November 26, 2009 Share Posted November 26, 2009 Hi all, I have been absent for a while as I have just got back from my holiday to the Cook Islands, which I might add was just what I needed. I am feeling so much better and I conquered my fear of flying after the SAH. I had no problems at all with flying other than the usual ear popping that I tend to suffer anyway. And my son's wedding was just beautiful. Anyway to get onto the subject at hand. I am going in next week to have my untreated aneurysm coiled and was wondering if anyone has had an aneurysm coiled that hasn't been associated with a SAH . Will the operation be the same as the same as the one I had with the burst aneurysm? i.e. Will I be in hospital for the same length of time, will I be on the same medication - nimodipine, heparine drip etc, and will my recovery period be a long slow one like I have been experiencing with the last coiling. I am hoping that this will not be a set back to my recovery as I have been improving daily and I am just starting to feel a bit more 'normal' even though I do have the odd headaches and twinges. I am also starting to feel a lot less anxious about things and have started to gain more confidence with my driving. I do have to have someone with me when I drive but at least have been able to drive myself to work. I think that if I have an idea of what to expect I will be better able to deal with it and I know that someone here will be able to put my mind at ease.
