Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.The pain is likely due to the damage to the nerves around the scars.This can occur at anytime due to the significant scar tissue formation and pressure on the nerves.Another possibility can be recurrence of the aneurysm.This should be checked by a MRI scan of the brain.Nerve related pain can be addressed by the medications.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
