Hello,I am 26yrs old and I was told I have a 6-7mm aneurysm on the left side of my brain near my eye. Initially coiling was going to be the best option but when an angiogram was done the surgons said the aneurysm is too close to my eye and open surgery would be best. Surgery is in three weeks and I truly don't know what to expect or where to go from here, it doesnt seem real to have something that is so quiet yet so deadly in your body. I was told my risk are that I could loose some vision in my left eye, or all, and then the other risk added to all open surgery. I'm trying to stay positive about this but it is really difficult. I would have to say my biggest fear right now is recovery time after the surgery, I dont do well with headaches and such, I mean who does really. If anyone could tell me about their experience after surgery it would be great.
