I’m a 28 year old - recently diagnosed with an aneurysm. My father suddenly passed away this year from a subarachnoid hemorrhage. He was only 55 and healthy with no symptoms. It has been very hard dealing with the loss.
As a precaution we were advised to have tests done as it was suspected to be hereditary. My siblings results have come back clear. It has been a stressful two weeks and I have just been diagnosed with a 2mm aneurysm behind my right eye. At this stage the neurosurgeon has advised it is just a case of monitoring every six months with a scan.
I’m interested to hear from everyone how they dealt with finding out. I can’t stop thinking about it even though I’m told it’s low risk.
