Sorry for my delayed response. For some reason, I don't always get notified with people's posts.
I couldn't agree with your third paragraph more. I do get overwhelmed more easily, struggle with some short term memory.. but then also wonder if that's just getting older, haha. I also find it sort of hard to explain the differences/struggles in general.
I would be frustrated with the zero follow up! That's ridiculous. However, if they have definitely diagnosed perimesencephalic, recurrence is definitely rare. So I guess that is reassuring. However, I have found through this whole experience, you most definitely have to be your own advocate for your health.
I have found a few women with similar stories, (postpartum SAH) but nothing is ever exactly the same, or our neurologists say different things. So it's just so hard to pinpoint.
Thanks again for your response, and hope all is well.
Hi there I have had two children naturally since my sah caused by ruptured aneurysm I had two brain aneurysms both been clipped xxx
I would really try not to worry though and speak to your Dr they wanted me to abort my first child (thank God I didn't listen my neurosurgeon said I would be fine) get in touch with your neurosurgeons office someone will be able to help xxx
And congratulations on your baby xxx
Holy thread revival Batman!! So, how's the process of getting your licence back going GC? It's gone so quiet that there may not be anything to relate but have you had any luck, or forward movment, with the DVLA application?
Well done on getting to this milestone!
All we can all do is carry on, but we have to adapt. Change happens - all we can do is help you adapt to deal with it in the best way you can.
The way I'd look at it about your Mum is that she was there and helped get you on the right road to recovery, even though she was battling her own issues. What a lady!! And you were privileged enough to have her as your Mum!
What better legacy can there be than that? Your battle probably inspired her to go on for as long as she could - that's what I call an inspirational lady. You? Well you're a chip off the old block!
Carry on and enjoy your life as best you can, as your Mum would have wanted. Have a tear now and again but just remember it was your Mum that made it all possible and on those occasions, raise a glass and say 'Thanks Mum.'
Here's to year 5 Andrea. May it be a good one for you.
HI there and welcome to BTG.
I' not sure that any of our members have given birth after an AVM but there are a couple who have since their SAH. You say your neurosurgeon is no longer practicing, but surely there will be someone in that department who can look at your records and and your case and advise your Obgyn accordingly. Ask them to write to them as your surgeon is no longer practicing.
