Upcoming Pipeline Stent surgery for 7mm wide neck Saccular Aneurysm

All,

Thank you all for posting comments, questions and updates on your situation. I’ve found more info on here than anywhere else on Google so far. It’s just good to read details from people who have been through it.

I’m a 43yr old male. I have an upcoming pipeline stent endovascular surgery scheduled for June 13, 2018 for a 7mm wide neck Saccular Aneurysm in the upper left Vertebral artery.

  1. Has anyone ever had any problems during the pipeline stent surgery?
  2. Has anyone been officially told if their aneurysm was trauma related?
  3. Is the recovery usually 1 week or 2 weeks or more?
  4. Just curious if any side effects post surgery?
