First cerebral angiogram

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've got the date for my first cerebral angiogram check post my ruptured SAH coiling back in March. I've had the angio before when I had the coiling but was so out of it last time i want to ask you what can I expect?

Will I feel rotton afterwards? Does the dye thing feel perculiar? Any angio top tips? Does it take long? Should I bikini wax!!

The outcome I am hoping for is that my coiling is looking pristine and lovely , that my shunt shows its best side on the pictures and my baby unruptured anneurism is sitting pretty.

After this they say I should be able to revert to MRI scans if all ok. Is that standard?

Thanks for any shared experience, advice.

Hi Daff :)

I was really nervous before my 1st angiogram follow-up appointment. You can have a read of my thread re.my 1st Angiogram

I had a follow-up MRi in January this year and have now been advised that my next follow-up MRi will be Dec 2014 because everything still looks good.

Good luck

Kel, thats super, really helpful. Thanks for posting that thread. Knowing about the Liquid paracetamol is good too as I had to have that previously when I went high pressure. They're going to keep me in one night cos I only recently had shunt. Glad your results are all good. X
