Success story

Hi everyone. Just wanted to check in and let everyone know I had my surgery on Aug 24. I am still amazed with how well it went. I had the coiling done and needed a stent as well. I had no postoperative symptoms, no pain except a very slight headache that went away exactly one week after surgery. And I only stayed with my son 3 days then came home by myself. I truly am amazed as is everyone else with my recovery. I expected to be at least very tired but I have been fine. Although I will say I haven't been doing much at all. Thanks to all for your support and encouragement.

Good for you!! God speed

So happy you are pleased with your surgery and recovery. I will be having basically the same surgery later this fall. I have just been watching mine for the last 2.5 years. But have decided I want it taken care of. Hearing how well things went with you gives me hope for the same.

I am so glad to hear how well you are doing. It sure does help us newbies to hold on to hope. ?...was the coiling and stent done endovascularly like through a groin catheter?

I too am so happy that your procedure went well. I had 2 coils and a stent placed at the bifurcation of the inner carotid artery on May 21. Mine was also through the groin. Surgery was on a Thursday at 10:00 to 1:00 and I left the hospital the following evening. I had to lay around for 3 or 4 days, basically no symptoms other than bruising on my hands from IV's and a bruise on my left eyelid. I think that hearing that it CAN be this easy will help calm other's fears. I was terrified before the procedure and couldn't believe how easily it went.

Awesome news so glad and happy for you and yes it does make me feel more at ease
Congratulations on your procedure and recovery Wow must be a guge relief

Amen!!!

Awesome!!!!! So much better than waiting for an explosion, or living with fear. I am so HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!!

Ditto! I echo the same comments. I was coiled
Sat December and they found another that needs clipped. I have had headaches since having the coiling and it’s been 10 months. I have been hesitant to go through it again whi
E I’m still suffering, but now I figure I may as well get it all over with and a least I won’t have to live in fear of the second one rupturing. They say it’s easier to recover from a treated unruptured Annie than it is from one that has, so I’m ready to take the next step.

Thx for sharing :slight_smile:

So happy to hear everything went well. Knowing what I know now, (I had a rupture) I wouldn't wait a month!
