My aneurysms were discovered a year and a day ago (who's counting, right?). One was coiled and stented, two are on the watch and wait, but my 6mos f/u angio was nothing but good news.
I just want to share this - as I remember so well when all of this nightmare started, and how scared I was that I wouldn't live a day, let alone a year! And I'm FINE! I survived the surgery, the follow up angio, and am living. I have to admit that I don't think I've had a day without it crossing my mind, but it doesn't derail me. This website has been instrumental in my experience of feeling supported and understood and reassured. I met a woman yesterday who is going through chemo for breast cancer, and we watched our little guys play little league, sunny day in the park, aware that life gives so many of us so many challenges, but we survive, we go on.
So - 6 more mos until the next follow up (which will be one year since the angio - but will now just be MRA thank GOD!).
