My father was having a ruptured brain aneurysm.. and it was really something not familiar for me .. i did not even know what was the aneurysm.. first doctor on the first hospital was saying that he only had a chance of 10 percent to survive .. then my aunty transferred him to a second hospital where it was known to have a good neurologist..
Neurologist said that he was having a ruptured brain aneurysm and it was in a high risk stage already since the bleeding has been affected the area of the brain..
He said that not much we could do.. But then he said that we could do something but has a very high risk and he did not promise anything .. He then reffered us the radiologist from another hospital who could treat my father with endovascular coiling.
Again we had to transfer my father to the third hospital on the next day for the endovascular coiling.
On this hospital they sucked the blood out of his brain and the radiologist told us that there were two treatments could be done for my father : clipping surgery or endovascular coiling.
Surgery is cheaper but has a high risk and coiling is 4 times more expensive but safer .
The doctor only gave us 5 minutes to decide so we (my siblings and i) decided for my father to have the coiling treatment.
It was successful treatment however 9 days after the treatment he got an infarct stroke and he has been in Intensive Care Unit for 2 weeks now.
He could not speak or move his body now.
I do not know what to expect after that and whether my father could recover faster as i am very sad to see his condition.
He is only 56 years old. Please let me know if you know anything about this.
