momo Posted April 8, 2010 Share Posted April 8, 2010 Hi everyone and I hope you are all well. Just wanted to let you know of a meeting I had with my neurosurgeon yesterday and how he answered a few of my questions on my 2 anuerysms(think I can finally spell it now!). I had a lot of questions but to cut this short he told me that the chance of rupture of my remaining anuerysm(I only have 1 and not 2 as I had previously thought) is less than 0.5%. And what I didn't know was that the type of anuerysm that I had that did rupture was a different type and probably formed only a few days or weeks before the rupture. There are longer lasting anuerysms and they have only a remote chance of rupture and the longer you have them the less chance there is. Mine is only 2mm and because it has stayed the same size he doesnt see it changing in my next scan. I know how worrying it is to live with an anuerysm and I know that some of you are also living with anuerysms so I just wanted to pass this on. Don't get over anxious about it and try to find out as much as you can about your individual case. So I'm feeling a lot less stressed. I also thought the anuerysm that burst was a large one but it wasn't, it was only 4mm. They think it only formed a few days before rupture so it is not completely size dependent. It was a large bleed though. I hope this is not too confusing but do check with your consultant. Momo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
