Aneurysm stands for dilatation of blood vessel. This usually happens, when there is weakening of blood vessel wall.

There are always chances of rupturing of such weakened blood vessel.

when there is weakening of the blood vessel wall by disease, or by inflamation or by constant stretch which happens in hypertension, the weakened wall ballon, giving an local enlargment . this is called aneurysm. it is dangerous because the vessel wall is weak at that site and there is chances of it getting rupture, and if it ruptures there will be huge amount of bleed which may be fatal also

I went through a kidney infection (caused by a blocked kidney stone) and then septic shock. I am recovering nicely at home. I was very lucky. For about 3 weeks now I have some numbness in my left butt check and depending on how I sit my tailbone (coccyx) is sore. i asked the urologist if putting a stent between my kidney and bladder would cause this and he said no. Since I was in bed for quite a few days he said it might be the way I was sleeping. The stent was removed about 2 weeks ago but the numbness remains and also the sore tailbone. I am returning to work after being off work for 8 weeks and would like for this to get better. Any ideas on what would cause this as I can only see my specialist in a few weeks.
