She has coiling done for a ruptured aneurysm about 9 years ago and it has returned above the coils and is scheduled for clipping June 3. She is very anxious, which is totaly normal and understandable, but she is not sure how to handle these feelings. She has had numerous other surgeries due to other health problems and has never been this anxious. I told her it was because her brain is being operated on. She keeps telling me she is crazy for feeling this way and is worried about how she will be after surgery. The literature her doctor's office gave us is quite frightening. I just want to be as supportive as I can be and reassure her she is not crazy. I want to be able to give facts but not scare her to death or tell her not to be concerned either.
