Brain Aneurysm Support Community

Preparing for clipping on May 7, 2013 looking for insight

Hi All. I am trying to get an idea of what I can expect post procedure. My aneurysm is 2-3mm but thin walled and it's funneling down towards my brain (dura mater actually). My maternal aunt and her daughter both died from ruptured brain aneurysms. Mine was found on a work up for migraines. I will be meeting again with the neurosurgeon (Dr. Tamargo at Johns Hopkins) to ask a few more questions, now that I have my thoughts together after getting the initial news that this procedure was needed. However, those that have gone through it tend to be more aware and well, have better insight as having been the actual patient or caregiver.

How was your surgery with Dr. Tamargo? I see him next week to determine next steps.
