    • Hi Win, and to all of you, thank you for support.    Like Trace I stalk and I love to see the banter amongst all of you. All the members understand each other and help one another and also join in with each other's lives.     I shall carry on popping in and hopefully will be able to offer some support to others as you all do with us new members.   take care all of you Irene
    • Happy Anni-versaries Rob and Sami. I always appreciate getting one more year between me and the SAH and imagine you do too.  Hope you keep getting better and better!   Colleen
    • Hi,   I was coiled after my SAH 1/9/2010.  I had a bleed in the left anterior communicating artery and it was said to be a larger than usual aneurysm and irregularly shaped as well.  At the time, they were worried the coiling might not last and that they would have to clip me instead.  However the coils held and clipping has not been necessary. I was seen every quarter for the first couple of years and now I am still seen every six months.   I think they are just reassuring themselves as much as me that there is a risk but they are still monitoring it.  I don't worry about it now as I am more than five years out and whatever will be will be, as they say.  Whatever happens at least you know people are trying their best to help you.  There are many places around the world where it isn't the case and I am thankful that our country at least gives us a chance.   I have had a remarkable recovery and although there are still some problems they are but nothing compared to the wonderful care I received and continue to receive at the hands of our superb NHS at Salford Royal (Hope) Hospital.   Good luck in your recovery   Macca
    • Hi Irene, You stick in there along with Trace and never give up, also a bit of light banter helps so remember to be stress free and come on Behind The Gray when on a downer as we have all been there.   A Trouble shared is a trouble halved so even if you need to rant and get it off chest it helps, I have come on here and left laughingxx   So keep going and Welcome xx Stress is a no no lol xxxx WinB143 xxxx
