Greensboro woman undergoes brain surgery while wide awake

GREENSBORO, N.C.— Ingram Bell survived being shot in the head.

Months later she started getting headaches.

Doctors diagnosed her with a brain aneurysm, that was caused by that gunshot—and it was growing.

Before they could operate, Bell got another surprise.

She was pregnant.

Not wanting to harm her baby with anesthesia, her doctors at Wake Forest Baptist Medical took another approach.

Brain surgery.

Bell was wide awake for it.
