Customer Question

I am having a cerebal angiogram on Friday 7/24/15. There was a aneurysm found in my brain, not sure of exact location. All I heard was aneurysm. I would like to know what would determine whether I am kept overnight or not? Also, depending on the neck of the aneurysm will determine whether or not a coiling is possible. How dangerous is this? My aneurysm is 3.5 mm, how quick will a coiling be schedule? What is the recovery time? I apologize for all the questions but I just found out and was in shock initially and now I have all these questions. Kind Regards, Laurie

You will be overnight by definition.
Maybe two days.
Recovery time should be fairly rapid, but complete healing is going to take up to 6 months.
The average length of stay for coiling is 1 to 2 days, but usually with an overnight for observation.
If the aneruysm is not ruptured, coiling is easier.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
