It’s been years since I posted. I am 7 years post craniotomy for ruptured aneurysm. It’s been a journey. I’ll never be completely whole again but I am in good shape. I wanted to share some learnings I have had. The surgery, ICU stay, tons of powerful drugs, stress etc has wrecked my gut. I have realized many of my problems from depression and anxiety, brain fog, sleep issues, etc, were due To my gut health more than the aneurysm. It’s complicated. I had ptsd. I had other problems. Where did one stop and the other begin. I dont know but I do know my gut health was destroyed and i have been working in healing. Kefir, antimicrobial herbs etc. i have gotten better through this. You all should consider this too
It’s been awhile! I moved your suggestion to complimentary therapies under the general tab for any member who may be interested and might want to ask some questions. Glad to hear you’ve found someth8ng that’s worked for you!
