Im new here. In August last year my husband had an MRI scan as he was experiencing daily headaches. The scan showed a 4.5mm aneurysm which was rather a shock for us both! The consultant said the headaches are not linked to the aneurysm. He has stated that there is 6% chance of it rupturing in my husbands lifetime (hes 74yrs old) or 5% risk of the coiling procedure going wrong if he decides to go ahead with it. The risks are moreorless even and we can’t decide what to do. Hubby has had lots of health issues and operations so is reluctant to have anymore procedures done.
He has decided to be monitored and have a yearly scan (next one due in Aug).
What would you do in hubbys situation? Im always thinking and worrying about it. Its affecting my mental health. I dont want to book a holiday as Im scared something will happen while we are away. Its like a dark cloud following me around! Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
