Shanda from Georgia has joined us- Welcome!


Hi Shanda, my name is Arjuna, an intern here at Ben’s Friends, and after reading your story I wanted to take the time to say that we are happy you found us, and are looking forward to helping you out. It must have been frustrating to know that the doctors had side-stepped your concerns all the way until you had your aneurysm rupture, even when your father had the very same thing. I can’t even imagine the distress these major headaches have been causing you after the coiling procedure was done, but it is a relief knowing that you have recovered so well so fast!

My heart goes out to you, dealing with the ongoing pain must be no fun. You may have noticed the search icon (Magnifying glass) on the top right corner of the screen. This is a great way for you to go through existing topics and discussions that may be help you learn more about what others have done to alleviate their pain. I did a quick search for the term “coiling recovery”, and many existing discussion threads popped up. Here is the link to that if you are interested Shanda: Search results for 'coiling recovery' - Brain Aneurysm Support Community

You could also directly ask the community your specific questions by beginning your own discussion thread. You can do this by clicking on the + New Topic tab. I highly recommend that you do this as we have such a wonderful community willing to give back and help you out. Please let me, Danielle, or the moderators know if you need any assistance navigating our site.

We are rooting for your Shanda, and we look forward to hearing from you.
