Andrea Posted April 12, 2005 Share Posted April 12, 2005 I am cheating and cutting and pasting a message I sent to family and friends earlier today: Greetings from Anxiety Disorder Land, Hi peoples. We need lots of prayers and good wishes for my beautiful dear mommy. We met with the Radiology Interventionist doctor today. Here is the deal: IF her cold gets better or does not get worse (bad cold timing), on Thursday she will have a cerebral angiograpy wherein they insert a catheter and inject dye in the brain. Her risk of stroke from that procedure is 1 in 200. IF from the angiography the shape of the anyersum is favorable for coiling (the preferred less invasive technique), they have scheduled anasthesia to be on "stand by" and the procedure will be done and she will be in ICU for one night. Risk of catastrophe is 10%. Likelihood I will be drugged on Xanax while waiting is much higher, around 99%. If the shape is not good, she goes home, I call the dr for more Xanax, and then we revisit neurosurgeons again for bigger surgery. So that's it Wish us luck! Hugs, Kisses, Cancer Cure wishes, and Anyerusm sucess, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
