    • Hi I’m 11 weeks into my recovery and after being unable to focus on anything when I came out of hospital my vision is now back to its normal self but I have developed blind spots. My optician has said let it settle so I asked my doctor for an ophthalmic assessment but i have to wait until January for an appt. it’s really affecting my life.   My eyes are trying to adjust but I’m getting loads of eye strain and my brain seems to be seizing up. I can’t drive so my independence has been taken away. I don’t know how to cope with this. I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning as I know I have to deal with it. Anyone else experiencing similar problems? Xx
    • Hi Janeece I am sorry to hear about your sight. I am sure it will get better with time. I have heard others with that problem and it has taken time to improve. Ask your do to.r or consultant if you are worried.   I have blurred vision at times and also have to close my right eye when the pain behind it gets too bad. It's not all the time but it is every day. I am still suffering from extreme fatigue and have to rest and have small naps and if I engage in a meaningful conversation I forget words. My long term memory is ok. I can also forget what I was going to say.   I have been very lucky as i look like me but behind the appearance I am not me. I am not sure what you meant when you said you had stitches out. I didn't have any stitches My 3 hr operation to coil the SAH was done via an artery in the groin.   I hope you are having a better day and thank you for replying. It's a lonely club we are member of.    
    • Hi Carolyn, you replied to my post and I just wanted you to know that we both went through this ordeal around the same time. I had a coil too.   I’m feeling tired allot, and my vision is really bad, and I feel dizzy quite a bit. Do you have any of those kinds of problems?     I pray that you are doing well in your recovery , and am here just like all these lovely people in this forum for you anytime.. Take care of yourself please and go at a pace you can handle. Talk to you soon.
    • Thank you so much Carolyn, you are a doll. I do wish they could have seen it in the hospital.   I’m very limited on being able to get around. My eyesight is still really bad. I’m hoping that will get better.   My primary care doctor took my stitches out for me on Monday. Very nice of him and gave me something for anxiety. Not being able to see, is what I believe is giving me the anxiety.   Everything else is going very well. My husband says my short term memory is off, because I keep asking the same questions over and over again. I keep telling him.. “I never asked those questions.” He said, yes you did. So funny. He told me that he would answer as many times as I asked.   Hope you are doing well with your recovery too... Take care of yourself 
    • Hello, I know I'm a bit late to the conversation here but I too have had a child after having two SAH's. My neurosurgeon said I was fine to have her naturally and so that's exactly what I did,   Hope all is going well.
