Jul 7, 2017 · Aneurysm coiling in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

My husband experienced a cerebral rupture and was saved with a coiling procedure as well. When he left the hospital (14days) he went on to experience the same symptoms your describing. HEADACHES daily, insomnia, tiredness. Check with your doctor of course but he would take tylenol with coffee for headaches. I remember him drinking allot of coffee. The tiredness is part of the condition. You may experience this, this ,ay actually be your new normal. Its a adnustment. We have found ourselves in depressive states at times. Be informed, inform your support people, then lean on them. You will need to. The headaches vary, my husband still gets them and its been 4.5 years. The first 6months to a year they are consistent and its taxing.

I would try to gather as much information as possoble and seek as many opinions as you need to feel you are making the best decision. This is new for you so im sure you are so overwhelmed right now. My husband had a ruptured aneurysm at 33, as i was 6 month pregnant with our 2nd child. My prosepctive on it is if you wait, it may be something that ends up causing u much anxiety with the what ifs. What if it ruptures? As a young person the residual risks are much worse than risks of repair to unruptured aneurysm. At least by seeking other opinions you get all the info and can weigh things for yourself. Just for us, i wish we would have known about my husbands earlier. How did u find out? Generally they are. Ot noticed on regular MRIs

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?
