Yes,I'm afraid.: Talk to your treating neurologist to make sure everything is being done to lower this increased risk. Good luck.

Depends: Tias and stroke may happen after aneurysm coiling. Sometimes those are actually seizures. Talk to your doctor regarding further evaluation. Repeat angiogram or other vessel imaging may be needed t o rule out recurrence of aneurysm or integrity of the coil.

I agree completely. There could be something going on at the aneurysm site that is presenting a thrombogenic surface to the bloodstream, i.e. a place where a clot could form, and clots are embolizing to other parts of your brain. Most definitely contact either your neurologist or if you can't get hold of him/her for some reason, contact the neuroradiologist who did the coiling directly.

Yes: Tia's are essentially strokes that don't progress to permanent damage. So any TIA is a risk factor for stroke.
