I’m curious if others have had what I began experiencing about a month ago.
I had a successful clipping for an unruptured right MCA in March 2014. Since I recovered from the surgery I’ve been blessed to essentially have no discomfort in that area (except for one short episode a year ago) until Feb 2017.
Once a year ago when I got very upset about something I felt pressure and some dull pain in that area for a few hours. About 4 weeks ago I started having noticeable pressure and low grade ache in that area. The spot that would ache would vary a bit, but it was all only in my craniotomy area and inside my head and it has been continuous for the last 4 wks.
I went to my surgeon’s hospital ER about a week ago and they did a thorough check (CT, MRI, MRA, labs etc.) and everything checked out OK… My obvious anxiety is this a normal side effect/ symptom others of you have experienced or is it an indication of some looming new problem?
Have any of you had new pressure & discomfort years after your craniotomy? What kind of symptoms did you have. Thanks for your input.
