Is brain aneurysm surgery safe?

Depends

Aneurysm
In the correct hands, brain aneurysm surgery is less risky than it used to be 20 years ago. Unfortunately, all brain aneurysm surgeries (clipping or coiling) carry a risk for stroke and hence cannot be classified as "safe" surgeries. They are moderate to high risks surgeries depending on the size of the aneurysm and the health of the patient. Ask your doctor for details.

Each is different

Encephalitis
Brain surgery is a very broad term in this era of immensely advanced brain surgery. Each brain surgery is its own entity and hence I can give you a better answer if you were to be more specific with regards to your question. Are you set up for brain surgery for a brain biopsy, brain tumor resection, aneurysm clipping, or another cause?

Dr. Lynn M. Bartl answered:

Can someone who had brain surgery drink?

Not Recomended

Head-brain
If you are asking about the intake of alcoholic beverages, the answer is generally no. Patients may be at increased risk for seizure around the time of brain surgery. Alcohol lowers the seizure threshold and may contribute to a post-operative seizure. Consult your doctor about your risk for seizure and a reasonable plan to enjoy a small amount of alcoholic beverages after surgical recovery.
