Unconscious in brain aneurysm

hello, my aunt is in the ICU right now and is still unconscious. doctors said the hemorrhage stopped but she s still unconscious. Is an operation really the only cure? The doctors said she cannot be operated if she s not conscious, is that really true? is there anyway to wake her up?

To operate a patient there is required a criteria of his consciousness level.You cannot operate if patient is in coma or unconscious.Currently we cannot do anything to make her wake up.It can take few minutes or even years in her waking up.Nobody can tell when she will arose .
