I had a ruptured aneurysm in October 2017 which was coiled. In February 2018, my followup cerebral angiogram showed that the aneurysm was gone and everything was exactly what my neurosurgeon was hoping for. However, as time has passed I have noticed a number of possible after-effects that I am not sure whether they are a result of the aneurysm rupture or possibly something else.
For example, in the summer of 2018 I started to notice that I am very sensitive to hot and cold. If I have toast or a bagel in the toaster, I cannot take it out barehanded as my fingers feel like they are burning off. Even with gloves and boots on, my hands and feet are always cold when I am outside of my house in the winter. My skin also seems to tear very easily – we got a puppy in October, and anytime his teeth or paws are near my arms I have wounds but nobody else does. And the slightest bump causes me to bruise (I have been off the blood thinners for almost a year).
I know that I have been told in the past that it can take months or at least a year for lingering effects to settle. I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same types of things a year or longer after successful treatment or if I should be checking to see if it is something else. I do not have medical coverage right now so do not want to incur any more bills than I have to!
