    • Hi there Warm welcome, hope the site helps you, its definatly a life changing thing please to hear you Mum is doing good its great she's got a support network around..   take care.  
    • Welcome to BTG Lex. You will certainly find lots of information on here. So pleased to hear your mum is doing so well. I'm sure you will have gathered from reading the forums that slow but steady is the way to go. Please come back and keep us updated on your mum's recovery.   Feel free to join in the daily banter in The Green Room. 
    • Hello everybody.   My name is Lexeran (Lex for short). My mom had a ruptured aneurysm and SAH back in December 2023. 7 months later, mom is doing well. Still some iffy days (especially when it's too hot or too cold, she gets mild headaches that grow if she doesn't rest), but very much a fighter. This experience has definitely beaten us up, but my family (myself, my brother, and my parents) have all taken it in stride and continue to support each other and be there for mom and each other.   Been a bit of a lurker since a couple months ago, but wanted to officially join to help share and also learn from everyone.   So, greetings and can't wait to take this journey with you all.   -Lexeran
    • Hi there   warm welcome to the site, from someone else who has a Shunt....   take things slow and easy, listen when your body wants rest then rest up, hope you find the site helpful for you..   take care
    • Hi Robert, welcome to the site, glad to hear you are making a good recovery so far. It's common to feel physically weak post bleed, it took me a long while to be able to do the things I'd been able to do previously, but I'm glad to say I got there.    Mentally was a lot slower and even now I would not say I am back to 100%. I still get very fatigued, this seems to be a very common thread post SAH. Be kind to yourself and don't do too much too soon, your brain won't thank you. You will eventually reach the 'new normal' - an hopefully embrace it.   Take care of yourself and take rests when your body tells you to. Keep us updated on your recovery.   Clare xx
