1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
After the coiling the aneurysm is sealed off and will no longer be a threat to you.
Your neurosurgeon and the radiologists will then release you to go back to a normal life.

Important: continue regular follow up with your radiologist & neurosurgeon when they will check for recanalization (recurrence) of aneurys.

In brief: Yes if it works
The only caveat is whether the aneurysm caused some damage that was either manifest before re becomes apparent after the treatment.
This is aneurysm location driven. Time will tell. It is still preferable to open repair as a first treatment choice.

In brief: Also..
It depends on whether the aneurysm was ruptured, whether you have to take anti platelet agents.

In brief: That's plan A
And there's no reason to expect otherwise.
After your procedure, you should be able to return to the same status you are at now.
