In brief: Ask your doctor

You are not giving enough detail to answer the question completely but here is what your doctor would want to know - what were the symptoms of the tias you are describing and what body side was affected.
Was a stent used to treat the aneurysm. These and other questions may affect the recommendations - you must mention this to the surgeon who treated your aneurysm and seek advice.
