Jul 14, 2013 · Brain Aneurysm in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

I recently have had a stroke(s), they found a brain aneurysm in the center of my brain. I’m 44 years old.
I struggle everyday just to make it through the day. Between the pain in my head, the loss of half my vision in my left eye, confusion, half of my face being partially numb, and some loss of finding the right words to say.
This has been going on since early June. The doctors & neurologists that I have been dealing with, don’t seem to be real clear on things. They have sent me back to work, and told me that it was ok to drive, even though I can’t see things to my left!! I just had my angiogram last Tuesday, they are going to use the coil technique in middle of or end of Aug.
Shouldn’t this be done right away, to prevent further damage, or worse yet, death?

Are your headaches gone since you had your surgery?

How have things turned out for you? Has your aneurysm been removed? Are you doing ok?
I had a stoke, which led them to find my aneurysm. The doctors that I have been dealing with are not sure if the symptoms I have are from my aneurysm, or the stroke. It is a struggle to make it though every day. My quality of life has went down tremendously, to the point that I have felt like giving up. (& that’s definitely not me!)
