Appointment with Neurosurgeon

This afternoon, I had a follow-up appointment with my neurosurgeon. In 2013, a cerebral aneurysm was incidentally discovered, while undergoing routine MRI scanning to monitor the status of my relapsing-remitting MS.

I hadn’t realized that it had been four full years since I’ve seen this specialist to monitor my aneurysm. During this same time period, I’ve been so very busy with the management of multiple other chronic illnesses.

Most thankfully, my neurosurgeon was able to review my latest MRA scan results immediately before my appointment. I’m very relieved to say that there have been no changes in the size of my cerebral aneurysm during the past four years.

Consequently, my neurosurgeon said that it is acceptable for me to see him again in another year. Of course, I certainly realize that this information could have been much more sobering to receive. Thankfully, I’m not facing any surgical interventions for my aneurysm.

  1. grateful to hear! I learned I have a meningioma, discovered incidentally while getting an MRI to explain episodes of dizziness & vertigo. Like you, mine has not changed in 4 years, but a benign meningioma is not as threatening as an aneurysm, I’m sure. Expecting the best for your health battles.
