    • Hi Yun, I didn't have clipping, but head and scalp were tender and my hair was starting to go thin .... Brushing the hair, especially in the morning or after washing wasn't good .... I found this detangler brush a huge help and I still use one .... it's called a Tangle Teezer and the following link will give you some ideas as to what it looks like, but you can pick these up now from any supermarket or drug store. https://www.tangleteezer.com/
    • I had this eventually it eased, I used a shampoo for sensitive scalp, (cant get the one I used to use now) but now use Head & shoulders sensitive scalp its ok..    
    • Hi Casey,   Good to hear from you.  Sorry for what happened to you, must have been terrifying...   When all was said and done and I returned to Mass General for my first follow up with Neuro I was so blindsided.    I mentioned to the doctor that I was especially fearful as I had now had 2 strokes...and he said not really (me???) he told me then about the vasospasm and that it was really all part of the same stroke...I had to go home and go on the computer and look it up...took me weeks to be able to do it.   If they were expecting vasospams for me no one mentioned it when they sent me home from the SAH.  My initial follow up appointment was set for a month...but as I said I was back in the ER way before that..   Such a complex event(s)....   Stay well.. Jean
    • Swishy, I had a nasah in 2012. I live in Arkansas and was sent to Little Rock for treatment. I was placed in NSICU for 12 days.   I had a phenomenal team caring for me. I had what they called vasospasm’s on something like the third day if I remember correctly.  However, they were expecting this.   I recall seeing the white board on the wall with instructions to not allow my bp to fall below 150. I was told this was to keep the vessels in my head from collapsing.   I remember my nurse telling me “ you may die, but it won’t be your heart that kills you!”.
