Henrik's father had brain surgery(aneurysm)

Quote:
Peter Lundqvist underwent brain surgery in mid-December. Henrik doesn't want to discuss the details. But his father apparently suffered an aneurysm that required the surgery shortly after he returned to Sweden from a late-November visit to the United States to see his twin sons Henrik and Joel of the Dallas Stars play against each other at the Garden.

According to one account, which Henrik did not want to discuss, Peter Lundqvist underwent the surgery without Henrik or Joel knowing until after it was over. The procedure was successful. But the recovery has been slow.

And monitoring it from across the Atlantic has not been easy
.

There was a reference a few weeks ago in a Swedish paper about Lundqvist being concerned about his dad's health.

Yikes, that's awful. I pray his father has a successful recovery and I hope the media is respectful enough of all of their privacy to leave them to it.

Such a classy guy.. he doesnt excuse anything he's done on the ice (his numbers is awful after that Dallas-game). And i just loved to hear he broke his stick in pieces after the EDM-loss. He didnt blame anyone, he was just pissed of that Gagner-tally in the SO he got a piece of. He just wants to win. No matter what.

My mom had an brain aneurysm 20-ish years ago. If you don't die immediately, prognosis is usually pretty good, but indeed, the recovery is slow.

Gotta be very tough to be half a world away and unable to visit a loved one in crisis.

It speaks volumes about his character that he responded to his adversity the way he did. He very well could've left the team, but he didnt. Even though he didn't get the results he would've wanted (he's probably putting even more pressure on himself than usual), you have to admire that.

Glad your moms ok. I actually heard something on the radio about this yesterday, aside from what you already mentioned, also neurologists will do brain scans and if the aneurysm is tiny, they wont do anything about it, they just leave it. I guess at some point its so small, that it doesnt affect the brain at all. Strange, to me at least.

Wow that sucks. My grandmother died of a brain aneurysm, after the infection causing her to be brain dead for 6 months I might add. She never recovered, and its often not easy to even make it to recovery, so Peter's lucky. Good to hear.

Only thing that sucks is I hear it skips a generation, and can also skip from male to female, making me a possibility of having one when I get older. Getting concussions in hockey I'm sure isn't helping me, either.

On that note, Henrik should be fine when he gets older, as it skips a generation usually.

to be honest i think he should, 100%. no doubt in my mind that family and healthy is more important than the All-Star game. a) he'll be in many more in his career and b) if he gets nominated thats good enough for many.

Not necessarily. My mother's father died of a stomach aneurysm, so if you've got a family history, you should be getting a body scan, not just a head scan.

I have to think it's very tough and may be playing on his mind and might explain some subpar performances lately. There is not much he can do about it but hope for the best.

Henrik Lundqvist said that his father, Peter, was improving in a Swedish rehab hospital after brain surgery several weeks ago. While acknowledging that his dad was on his mind, Lundqvist said that while it may have been a distraction earlier, the fact that his condition was better had eased his mind.

in 2000 i had a brain aneurysm on a plane just about to land in NJ. I went paralyzed for about 30 seconds, but walked off the plane like no big deal (till i saw a doctor and he told me what had happened). in my case it was a berry aneurysm, or the most common type of brain aneurysm you could possibly have. i got lucky, it was very painful, i can't imagine what a full fledged aneurysm feels like.

Scary story. Hopefully the news that it seems like he's getting better will clear Henrik's head a little bit. That has to be terrible to go through that. All the best to his dad.

Wow reallly? 20 years ago it was almost unheard of to survive the surgury, ur mom was very lucky. Even 10 years ago that surgury was tricky, even now its tricky, but thankfully medicine has come a long way since than with MRI's & the ability to map out the brain.

OUCH! where there any symptoms prior? did the air persure from flying contribute to it bursting? Did u have anytype of operation?

no, but i was under a lot of stress, working full time, going to college full time, commuting from home w/o a car (had to take the bus, which added over an hour to my commute) just a lot of stuff.

not sure if the air pressure contributed or not, the doctor was vague when i asked. and no, no operation. they ust put me on some medication, did a few MRI's and said that they wanted to do some sort of invasive brain examination, which my uncle, who is a pretty well known doctor in LA told me not to do. he said since the MRI was clear of any other potential aneurysms to just take the medication, and that i would be fine. which i am

Scary. Hopefully everything works out just fine. I will keep the Lundqvist family in my prayers.
