My 47 year old mother had had several aneurysms. It started about 10 years ago, she had severe headaches and was rushed to the hospital. The aneursyms was wrapped with a glue like substance because of the area that it was located, it could not be removed. Since that time she has had 4 operations and 1 "coil" procedure which is done by catheter. My mother is doing well and to look at her you would never know what she has been thru. I hope everything works out for you.
