    Another runner here, but not marathons. Hang in there! The new you is every bit as special as the old you. Chris
  3. You concerns will get better with time. Hang in there. Little things become big things, like blowing your nose. But with time, the anxiety should get better. Chris

    Ups And downs

    Certainly sounds like you are doing more than your body is ready for. I suggest rest. Please remember that this is not a steady recovery process. It ebbs and flows. Up and down. One of the concerns is when you feel better and let everyone know you are doing ok, they think you will just continue to improve. And they may not be patient when you hit a wall. Please rest as much as you can and listen to your body. It will tell you when it's too much, as it seems to be doing now. Best wishes, Chris

    Eye test

    I had lasik way back in the 1990s when it was still on limited approval here in the states. My eyesight was like 20/400 and I had worn contacts fro so long that i had severe conjunctivitus. So it was either that or thick (at that time they would have been thick) glasses. One of best decisions I ever did. My eyesight was terrific up until about age 50 when I started to need reading glasses. Now, after the NASAH, i need help near and far, but only when I really need to see well. Most of the time still no glasses for me.
  7. Best wishes for you wife. My older daughter had a PE and had to be on blood thinners for several months to allow it to dissolve. I know how stressful they can be. Prayers sent. Chris
  8. Welcome and best wishes for a nice recovery. If the people on this site could only truly know how much they mean to me it would be wonderful. I am certain you will get knowledge and support here Chris
  9. I had a follow up appointment around the same time after my NASAH. I don't think you should be worried. The way it was explained to me: They want to do another image just to be sure there is nothing there they could not see when they did the initial images. Now that some time has passed, the blood should have cleared from your head, so they can get a better view. Mine turned out to be a relief, because they confirmed that no underlying hidden cause was present, and I was cleared to go live my life again, start exercising, whatever I wanted. I was still having headaches and fatigue at the time, because I was still healing. Your are still healing too. I hope yours turns out the same. Chris

    Eye test

    I was already getting old man vision, but the NASAH made it worse, especially in one eye. I now need glasses, especially at dusk and dawn. And it is inconsistent. Sometimes worse than other, but the glasses still help.

    SAH followed by later heart issues?

    While suffering the NASAH, my heart rate dropped to around 26 bpm several times (while I was in ICU). But the cardiologist said it was not heart-related, just the brain not sending the right signals. My EKG then and another since both show IRBBB (incomplete right bundle branch block). As I understand it, the right side of my heart no longer receives the electrical signal from the brain to beat, and instead beats as the electrical signal from the left side of my heart "bleeds" over. So it is slightly delayed. However, I do run, and this could just be "athlete's heart", where the right side is larger from running, and is getting the signal from the brain, but due to to size, it shows as delayed on the EKG. So I answered unsure, as I don't know if the IRBBB is NASAH related or not.
