Hi Clevelandpatient,
I can imagine how frightening this must be to get such a detailed report with multiple findings. It is really important that you get time with your doctor so that he or she can explain what all the terms mean and what they mean specific to you.

Before you go to your appointment, you may wish to read about vasculitis here: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vasculitis/basics/definition/con-20026049

Also, here is a good checklist of how to prepare for an appointment, questions to ask and what questions you might expect from the doctor: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vasculitis/basics/preparing-for-your-appointment/con-20026049

For vasculitis, some basic questions to ask include:

What type of vasculitis do I have?
What’s causing my vasculitis?
Will I need more tests?
Is my vasculitis acute or chronic?
Will my vasculitis go away on its own?
Is my vasculitis serious?
Has any part of my body been seriously damaged by vasculitis?
Can my vasculitis be cured?
What are my treatment options?
What are the benefits and risks of each treatment?
Is there one treatment you feel is best for me?
How long will treatment last?
I have another medical condition. How can I best manage these conditions together?
Should I see a specialist?
Do you have any brochures or other printed material that I can take with me? What websites do you recommend?

I just had my second brain aneurysm 8/27/2019, the first one was 05/24/2016. Mayo in Jacksonville Fl went above and beyond to take care of me and I am grateful for the Neuro team.

Hello @favored904 and welcome to Mayo Connect.

I am happy to hear that you had such good care from the Neuro team at Mayo in Florida. I appreciate your sharing your story with Connect.

Could you share with Connect a little about the symptoms you had for the brain aneurysms? Was there some specific symptom that was a warning of the brain aneurysm?

Do you recall what type of procedure the Mayo team used for treating the brain aneurysm? I am aware that sometimes brain aneurysms are inherited. Are there other family members with this problem as well?

Hi, @favored94 – I'd like to join @hopeful33250 in welcoming you to Mayo Clinic Connect. I wanted to let you know I moved your post here to be part of this previous discussion on aneurysms.

I'd also like to introduce you to @roch @GratefulEveryDay @skk15 @perion @5posies @tanyabray41 @keithl56 and @lizang, who have all talked about aneurysms on Connect and may have some experiences to share.

How is your recovery going, favored94?

My aneurysm is still present and not growing any smaller. Three devices were inserted in the carotid artery but blood is still seeping through. I still have no symptoms. My one year check up will be in November.
