Follow-up 7 months later…..I recovered great after my first clipping. 2 week post-surgery I had a bleed. The ER team was great and called Mayo where I had been treated and was then transferred back to Rochester. That pretty much is my last memory for the next 30-35 days. During that time I had another clipping, a coiling and shunt. Feel very fortunate that I had an amazing team on my side, my husband, BFF’s, parents, co-workers and the great medical staff.
Life is different and I’m learning to live it. Struggle with short term memory, confidence, speech problems and my sense of time is off (hard to explain).
Happily I am working full time and volunteering at the local animal shelter, important things to me. Oh and so happy I’m here!
