Re: How common are brain anuresyms

My mother had one, she didn't know it, till it let lose one morning. She survived the surgery, but was never really right after that. She passed 3 yrs later to other issues. The Neurosurgeon told us that we (her children) were 50% more likely to have one also.

I also have a friend that had a problem with her eye, and the Dr finally sent her to have an MRI thinking it was possible onset of MS. They found 3 Aneurysms,
She had 2 separate surgeries a yr apart, and is fine now.
