Robin, I had a head bump 6 days after coiling. Hubby and I were getting settled in airplane seats and hit each other's head hard. Scared me enough for flight attendant to come talk to us. Told doc about it later and he said coils were into stay. Since it happened at the beginning of our trip just watched it and waited to see if I was going to be okay. I am now 7 weeks post op and do not think it changed anything. Fear and anxiety are still my biggest enemy. Is hard to be positive all the time. Hope you did not hurt yourself but will send positive vibes your way just in case. Have a good holiday weekend. Jo
If you were clipped it might be of some concern but coiling is surgically done from within. My wife was clipped and she seems to have a tendency to misjudge whatever is above her so she taken quite a few bumps over the years. When the bumps were directly to the bone flap she usually ended up with a severe migraine but all else just a painful bump. I can safely tell you she rarely made misjudgements prior to her rupture. But post surgery, now that's a different story. I'm gonna have to make her a bubble wrap tiara.
Thanks, Robin. She does well by herself unless she has a migraine attack. Fortunately we now know that they are caused by the metal sutures holding the bone flap together - it happens to be a post surgical complication that Doctors never recognized could occur. Keep an eye on your headaches because clips can also trigger migraines.
Hi Robin, I have hit my head a few times getting into Taxi's don't seem to be able to judge heights and distance hit my head so hard made me see stars but I am okay and like Jo the anxiety can be worse than the event, I am glad you seem okay and most of us still get headaches but my surgeon told me if it cannot be sorted with an over the counter medicine then is the time to worry, I hope you have an amazing day, Jill xxx
