At Home with New Metal

I’m home. it has been a tough 24 hours. Surgery didn’t go as planned. he was unable to insert additional coils successfully, so he inserted a spanking new Neuroform Microdelivery Stent across the base of the aneurysm and we’ll have to go back in in six or so weeks to insert the coils. The neck of the access area was too wide and the coils wouldn’t stay in.

It was a horrible night. lots of head pain then horribly sick to stomach. Two catheters later, then transferred from recovery room to semi-private room on the neuro floor this morning. I had to pee on my own before they would discharge me…talk about pressure, but I FINALLY did we left hospital around 3:30 or so. Promptly fell into bed when got home and slept soundly until 9.

I’m still feeling lousy, but not sick anymore and very glad to be home. I’m ticked i’ll have to go back and do this all again, but it is what it is. I’m alive. The drs. and nurses, as usual were fantastic. Just amazing care.

Thank you for all your prayers.
