Importance of Follow-Ups

I wanted to share my most recent experience with all of you. I had a SAH 6 years ago & have 9 coils. My neurosurgeon does follow-up angiograms, I had one 6 months post annie, then 2 years later & my most recent was 3 1/2 years later (which was done in November 2017. Prior to this last one everything has been fine but this time he found an artery in my neck that was 80% blocked (no blockage was seen 3 1/2 years ago). I had a stent put in last week. I just want to let everyone know just how important it is to have your follow-ups. If I hadn’t gone in I’m not sure what would happen but I’m sure it wouldn’t be good.
