Welcome to Connect, @love2dance.
I moved your question to this discussion thread about brain aneurysms. On Feb 8, Dr. W. David Freeman, neurologist, and Dr. Rabih Tawk, endovascular neurosurgeon, will be hosting a live Q&A chat about brain aneurysms. I think your question would be a good one to ask them.
Love2Dance, what personality changes have you noticed since the surgical clipping? When was the surgery?

What is common treatment for a 3mm and a 5mm aneurysms that are in the carotid artery behind both eyes
Surgery was Jan 24 2017. No emotion and unable to get sentences with right words. Off the wall statements. Not recognizing friends from our dance group when they send cards.
@kariulrich and @deanatay, did you have any issues with memory or personality changes that you could share with Love2Dance?
Good question @deanatay!
Welcome to Connect. Have you had any treatment?
Hi Lovetodance, I have small aneurysms that are monitored and have not had to have a coil or clipping. Do you know where the ruptured aneurysm was located? I am sure that may have something to do with the symptoms you are experiencing, but I would advise you to call your neurosurgeon and ask that question specifically. Did they tell you at discharge that your symptoms would improve overtime. I know the healing process can take time, but I would give your doctor a call just to be sure. If your having a difficult time remembering all your discharge instructions make sure you read them several times and have a family member go over them, so you know what post op signs and symptoms to be watching. Keep us posted!
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.

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?
Smoking does increase the risk factor for aneurysms. I hope he can sum up the courage to quit smoking again, I know it easier said than done. You are in my thoughts, this has to be difficult for you. Please know we are here for you. Here is a link for smoking cessation: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/quit-smoking/basics/quitsmoking-basics/hlv-20049487
