What part of your brain was your aneursym in ?


Recommended Posts

Right & Left occipital lobe infarct (strokes)

Acute Left Posterior Cerbral Artery in brain stem (SAH) Inoperable

Tumor in left tentorium (Bonus diagnosis!)

I have AVM

When I had my angiogram there was a mistake made and I ended up with a Vertebral Artery Disscetion

and then I stood up and broke my foot.........................

It does help to know what you had but on the other hand I am still very confused as I am a visual person ( now with a visual impairment!! LOL). I really, really need someone to hold that colorful fake brain in the office up and show me exactly where everything happened. AND I would need to video tape it to "learn" it. So even though I know it is still confusing. Maybe too much going on for me to keep in my head. I have to look it up when someone ask that quesion. I did however make a pamplet for myself to understand it.....But I need someone to check my homework. If anyone is intersted in my pampet and how I did it send me a PM with email address. I have not copied it into computer yet but i can.

All i know is the aneurysm i had repaired was on the left hand side of my head towards the front . Quite what this part of the Brain controls is unknown to me at the moment :confused::confused:

Maybe ill get more visibility around this issue when i next see the specialist ?

I feel like Forrest Gump in many regards when it comes to my SAH

SAH is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you get.

I have had little info about the SAH.

Doc says I suffered a bleed, No known cause. Stopped bleeding by itself.

I am not sure if knowing more about the illness would help me recover. Sometimes I wish I had a map that I could show people so they could understand. I swear I feel like making up a map to get those who are less than open minded get their thick skulls around it:lol:

Mine was right posterior communicating artery so about an inch or so behind my right eye & pressing on the nerves that control the muscles of the eye (hence the partial 3rd nerve palsy). I watched a Utube video of a clipping in that area the other day, not for the squeamish but it was interesting!

I only know the answer to this one because I dug out my discharge notes recently to take to France in case I set off all the airport security with the metal in my head, an unfounded fear as it turns out thankfully :lol: Anyway, I thought I'd read the notes again with the misguided idea that I might understand a bit more this time. It turns out I had vasospasm during the op as well as a week later. After a lot of googling (always a mistake!) I do indeed understand a bit more.

To answer your question (I always ramble on, sorry!) I had an ACOM aneurysm which is an anterior communicating artery aneurysm and it was 9mm x 5mm.

Mine was right anterior communicating artery followed by small stroke after coiling. I don't know what part of brain the small stroke occurred in! I have all the records back home. I've looked at them lots of different times, but I can't remember that part right now! Probably where ever our memories are stored! :lol:

Carl send me your email address and I will show you my map.........and if it helps or matters I still feel like Forest Gump. I watched Dr. Phil do a show about screamign kids in public and I was telling one of my best friends this story - she says "screaming kids bother YOU in a store?" I was like where have you been? I am goign to finsih my map so I can give her a copy and maybe she will understand why my head hurts like a hang over everyday- even on good days. Same is true for that stupid woman who honks their horn 12 times a day when she drives past her moms house!!!!!!!!

My hubby gave me my letters from hospital...it was bifurcated ie one goes left and other goes right...basilar tip ??

Clever me knows about bifurcated as I worked in office where they did bifurcated fans.....it means cough cough

Ready?

O = fan ... O

V = airflow V.. is the air flowing over fan see it splits into Two and goes ove each side of fan....okay lesson over fo today

Basilar tip is normally at bottom of V where it splits (I Think) ??more than likely got it totally wrong

Ignore my brain lesson more likely to be wrong..lol

Bye All
