I am in my early 40's and was recently diagnosed with a small unruptured aneurysm in my internal carotid artery. The neurosurgeon says it is too small to operate on because the dangers outweigh the risks. I just don't know how to go about my day normally, knowing that I have a time-bomb ticking away in my head. Does anybody else have an unruptured aneurysm? Can it just stay this small forever and never rupture? Any information would be helpful. Thanks!:rolleyes:
