Tips on Surviving a Brain Aneurysm

Tip #7

Taking an Aspirin is optional. Always consult with your medical provider if you are unsure. Weigh the risks versus the benefits. The use of aspirin has been a controversial conversation and remains a personal choice following proper counselling from a medical provider. Aspirin is an anticoagulant, and from a personal standpoint, if you have a ruptured brain aneurysm, the risk of developing a stroke or a blood clot in the brain that can possibly lead to severe brain damage is high. Taking an aspirin (only if you are the right candidate) when you initially suspect that you have a ruptured brain aneurysm, from my personal view, can help decrease the chances of developing a stroke and/or severe brain damage. Some doctors have told me that when I took that aspirin when I started feeling that something was wrong with me, helped me gain full recovery with no complications whatsoever. Some have remained neutral about the benefits of it. In the end, it all falls back to benefit versus risk.
