Liz H. Posted December 28, 2019 Share Posted December 28, 2019 Hi- I had an 8 mm cerebral aneurysm in my left ICA that had a small leak and then was repaired on Monday. I had a stent and coiling performed. I had a vasospasm in my ICA during the procedure and had excellent packing (37%). I am incredibly grateful for how well it went but I don't feel like I was prepared for the recovery. The headache behind my left eye has been awful. The (mild) confusion and exhaustion was more than I bargained for and today I tried to sign my name and couldn't. I had a minor leak/bleed before the surgery so I don't know what's going on. The emotions were overwhelming this morning. I focused so much on preparing for the surgery that I guess I didn't prepare enough for the recovery. I'd love to hear how other folks recovered from a basically unruptured aneurysm repair? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
