    Default Hi first post.

    Hi,I'm from the UK. I have been diagnosed with an 8 mm carotid aneurysm and a piturity cyst. I'm terrified! I have to have a brain angiogram first, for them to decide if it's better to clip or coil the aneurysm. They misread my MRI scans three times, also a CT scan and a carotid artery scan. This was in four different Hospitals! I paid for another MRI which is how I had the diagnosis. The health board refuse to allow me to have surgery elsewhere, which means I have to find the money myself for the surgery as I am too afraid to have brain surgery locally. If anyone has had this procedure please post,thanks
