May 14, 2018 · TBI and brain aneurysms in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

Seems to me that it should be removed. Is there a chance of it rupturing?

My aneurysms were a cause of endocarditis. I was born with a heart defect that went unnoticed. I became very ill and because I was young and looked good ,my illness was dismissed. I finally went to the ER with severe pain in my chest. I was finally given an echocardiogram. I had endocarditis and was sent home on a pic line and told I needed open heart surgery but I had to wait until the heart infection cleared up. I called my doctor one day complaining of a bad headache. He dismissed it. That night my head blew up. I had emergency Brain surgery and a MRI found one more aneurysm and I was opened up again. Three months later I had two open heart surgeries. I had another heart surgery 12 years ago and am expected to have one more. The doctor's always say " but you look so good". I have been having Thunder clap headaches. I really have lost faith in western medicine.

Why are they waiting to remove it?

It was over 20 years ago. I have never felt like me since.

I have had two brain aneurysms, one that burst. I know I am blessed to be alive, but struggle everyday. I get depressed and my memory is toast. I look good so people don’t seem to believe that I struggle. It seems that as time goes by, I get worse. My doctor’s don’t take me seriously because I look healthy. I think that if you don’t look disabled, people have no empathy. Even my family doesn’t seem to care. I just want to give up and I am tired all the time. I am partially blind in one eye and fall over a lot. I loose everything. I sometimes forget a whole day
