steph Posted January 13, 2011 Share Posted January 13, 2011 Hi everyone, Had my SAH in Sept 09 and during my follow up mri was told I would need more coils in aneurysm. Had angio to confirm this was best option and in Nov last year went in for procedure. As you are all aware it is so easy to get yourself worked up about having more surgery...anyway when I came round in ITU the consultant informed me that he was not able to put more coils in as the stent that was supposed to be under aneurysm wasn't completely covering it and coils kept coming out. I had to go back yesterday and he has been talking to other neurologists and the firm who manufactured stent and he wants to put another stent in. He said he has never come across this before (bl**dy marvellous!) You are fed all the risks etc which seem small in comparison to how bad things were when it happened but I didn't want to be told I was 'one in a million' Has anybody heard of similar cases, it all feels a bit overwhelming at the moment. Thanks for being out there...you are all a great help x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
