What is involved in recovering from a ruptured brain aneurysm?

A: Recovery time varies depending on how much damage was done to the brain and body by the rupture. For most people, ruptures are treated with surgery, so the first step in recovery is post-operative. A hospital stay for a week up to a month after surgery is common. The rupture may have impaired the person''s vision, speech, motor skills, and cognition, so they may require physical or occupational therapy. Again, the level of damage done will dictate recovery time and the need for therapy....


what to expect after a ruptured brain aneurysm surgery

Is it possible to have had a ruptured brain aneurysm and survive without treatment?

A: Yes. In the short term, anyway. And where the aneurysm has a "slight leak", rather than a "rupture". I have seen patients with aneurysms that had definitely "leaked" before, but not seen a doctor at that time -- convincing story and "rusty brain" (haemosiderin from old blood) around the aneurysm. But this is weeks, rather than years, prior to seeking medical attention. I tell patients with an aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (ie ruptured aneurysm) that, without treatment, their chance of surviving six weeks is only 50%. None have declined treatment. Of the...


SAH/ruptured brain aneurysm-2 year ago

A: The issue you are describing regarding not being able to find the right word is a form of expressive aphasia. This sounds like a mild case of Broca''s aphasia. I would recommend you see a neurologist. You may need to have an MRI done to evaluate your brain better. CT scans are good, but generally MRI''s produce better pictures. Best wishes....


What Is the Best Treatment for brain aneurysms?

A: Treatment for brain aneurysms depends on individual circumstances. A ruptured aneurysm can be life-threatening and might be treated with a combination of reparative surgery and intravenous medications. An unruptured aneurysm could also be treated surgically, but the risks of surgery could outweigh the potential benefit of preventing a future rupture. brain aneurysms are potentially fatal, and anyone experiencing aneurysm symptoms such as sudden severe headache should seek emergency medical treatment. A brain aneurysm is...

Is a brain aneurysm a serious health risk?

A: The biggest risk is that the brain aneurysm will rupture and leak blood into the space surrounding the brain, causing a stroke called a subarachnoid hemorrhage. A ruptured brain aneurysm requires emergency medical treatment as the likelihood of death or disability is high. Ten to 20 percent of those who have a subarachnoid hemorrhage will die before getting to a hospital. Of those who survive, approximately 30 percent will have moderate to severe disabilities. Though not all brain aneurysms rupture, it is impossible to predict whether or when a rupture may occur....

Do birth control pills cause brain aneurysms?

A: Dear Reader, The sudden loss of someone close to you can raise all sorts of scary questions, but rest assured that your birth control pills will not give you a brain aneurysm. Medical research has shown no relationship at all between brain aneurysms and oral contraceptives. Perhaps you are thinking about blood clots, which similar to brain aneurysms can possibly lead to stroke. Oral contraceptives have been associated with an increased risk of blood clots, although for otherwise healthy women, this increased risk is still incredibly small. For more information on birth control pills and blood clots, check out the Related Q&As listed...
