I’ve recently been diagnosed with postural hypotension after a visit to A&E due to my 5th fall. I’m constantly nauseous, dizzy have a whooshing sound in my head and have involuntary jerking of my limbs, my GP is now deciding where to refer me to. I must admit, I’m feeling nervous.
I used to worry terribly but 19 years later two kids since we holiday every year I have just gone from two and a half days a week at work to six (because of kids not sah) bit I was petrified of going anywhere but since me and my husband split I do it all xxx
Life is for living try not to worry and speak to your dr xxx
I worried for a long time about it happening again, what if the clips moved as time passes this became less of an issue, move forward with it I did best thing...
But if your worried yes speak to your GP or your Neuro doctor...
Wishing you well, stay-safe.
I'm literally 16 years on today, since my SAH and the coiling of my aneurysm. My aneurysm still isn't 100% "fixed" as it has a small neck to it ... but I'll take that! I'm still monitored.
My aneurysm wasn't suitable for clipping and probably 30+ years ago I would have died, as there wasn't the medical technology with brain surgery re:coiling.
I'm just very grateful that I've had another 16 years to be honest.... Clipping is pretty invasive and a longer recovery period ... it brings with it, a lot of other recovery problems.
If I was asked now, as to what I would prefer coiling or clipping? I would go down the coiling route for sure.
Josie, we tend to blame everything on the SAH and I had a lady contacting me today and wondering whether it's the SAH, which she had last year or perhaps menopause symptoms. I'm not sure what age you are, but it can be a double whammy with the fallout from the SAH and believe you me, it can be a tough ride.
I wish you well and all good things. x
