How long does memory loss and personality last after surgical clipping of unruptured aneurysm?
@kariulrich @billieb @sunshine44 @useless @dannyreed,
On Feb 8 at 12 pm CT, Dr. W. David Freeman, neurologist, and Dr. Rabih Tawk, endovascular neurosurgeon, will be hosting a live Q&A chat about brain aneurysms. You can watch the video right here in this discussion on Connect. I hope you can join us.
What is common treatment for a 3mm and a 5mm aneurysms that are in the carotid artery behind both eyes
I want to mention that patients diagnosed cerebrovascular Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) are at increased risk of brain aneurysms, so I hope some of our FMD patients will join in on this Neuro Chat. For more information: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/fibromuscular-dysplasia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20202080
My husband had a rupture in January 2013. He had a coiling then that saved his life. 6 months later at a followup angiogram we learned he needed a clip which he had done in Sept 2013. He was a smoker and high BP. He currently still takes bp meds but recently started smoking again. What are the chances this new/old habit will cause a problem for his aneurysm?
That is Sean Bretz's Birthday and he will be 29! Thanks to Drs Tawk and Freeman for giving Sean the gift of

I had a giant aneurysm in the cavernous sinus treated with 4 pipeline stents. I had pain for a year before the surgery as the aneurysm was pressing on trigeminal nerve. This was 8 years ago and have had constant pain from both trigeminal and occipital neuralgia and my pain DR says I have central pain/ post stroke pain? 2 months after surgery I got severe burning pain in both knees and over past 8 years it has spread to my feet and hips and is equal on both sides. Location of the aneurysm and the complicated surgery are cause he says, the last of the 4 stents wouldn't open and they spent over two hours trying to open the stent with every option available including balloons and may have damaged other areas and nerves in cavernous sinus including thalamus?. The cavernous sinus is where all the trauma started and he said that is why I have all the pain still 8 years later and it has spread to lower body. Any thoughts on surgery in cavernous sinus and central pain? Was told that no Dr. would ever do normal surgery there due to complications and the stent was only option. 24/7 head pain and lower body too, not much of a life.
Am praying you meet the right doctor to help this situation. Please don't give up. I hope all reading this will have some valid suggestions!
Hi Dr Tawk and Freeman. Just wanted to let u know that today February 8 is Sean Bretz's birthday. He would not be here celebrating this day without you both and the Mayo Clinc. Thanks to all. Kate
Will my husband's libido ever return to normal? Are the post aneurysm personality changes permanent?
