Guest lilnan Posted December 2, 2008 Share Posted December 2, 2008 I was not real sure where to post this.....But I have a question about the diagnoses. My mother had a brain aneurysm rupture 7 years ago, and Great Aunt had 1 rupture, and 1 annie unruptured (clipped) around 6 years ago. I have heard many people say they can be inherited. Since, I have developed severe migraines, just as my mother did in her 30's. The neorologists has peformed a CT and suggested that I have them every 2 years, beings it seems like they run in the family.. Well about 6 months ago it was 2 years and now the Doctor is saying that the determination of insurance and the hospital board that having one test is sufficent per patient. The doctor claimed that if I would have had one that I would have been born with it and that the tests are not needed. She gave me some story about that if I were to have one there would have been signs of that on the one I had 2 years ago and that is the only test I will need my entire lifetime, basically saying I am aneurysm free and will remain that way. I thought that aneuyrsms can occur and develop at any stage in life.....Why would they make the determination to not check to make sure one will not develop or rupture if they seem to run in the family. I think this is a BS story and I may need to find another DR. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
