I had my surgery date moved up. I'm scheduled to have my anterior aneurysm fixed next Monday, January 19. I had my preop workup done this past Friday. I've got a different neurosurgeon because my other one has gone to another hospital. This doctor is Sunil Patel. He is supposed to be one of the best in the USA. They will not have to shave my head (which I don't care about)because he is not going to remove any skull. He is either going in through my right eye or right beside it. I got the impression that this surgery is kinda' routine for him. What a relief. The aneurysm that ruptured in June was in the back bottom of my brain (cerebellum). I also had meningitis and inflammation as well as fluid. That is why it was so dangerous. Although no surgery is risk free, I get the impression this one is going to be easier and less dangerous. He also said he could clip my olfactory nerve to fix my chemical hypersensitivities. But I don't think I'm going to have this done. Until my aneurysm ruptured I pretty much had this under control with supplements.
