Pat 11-4-16 Subarachnoid Hemorrhage


PATRICIA

Hello My name is Pat I had a Subarachnoid Hemorrhage on 11-4-16

 

I was at work and collapsed and my heart stopped. Thank God for my co-worker who got my heart started again. I do not remember anything except waking up alive in the hospital and asking my family what happened to me. I remember nothing, I was only in the hospital a short time, I was transferred to rehab for therapy, i was very blessed.

 

My Son was getting married on New Years eve and I pushed myself to walk again, With my son holding on to me, I was able to slow dance with him. So I did not miss his wedding. I am truly blessed I have a Grandson who was my rock. I knew I had to get better for him.

 

Its been almost two years in November 2018, I am back to work . I didn't remember everything at first but my co-workers were wonderful. I still forget things and sometimes have these weird feelings like spiders crawling in my hair and also very tired.

All I can say is Thank God for my family and friends.

 

A year later I had a Focal Seizure  and now on medicine that was  three months ago.

Does any one else have these funny feelings in your head or had a seizure.  I know your body does not want this shunt, its what i have in my head.  My life  is mostly back to normal, except for being exhausted a lot.  I get up and go to work so that is a plus.

 

WE ARE ALL SO BLESSED.

Hi Pat I have a sister named Patricia alias Patsy xx

 

I used to get itchy head after my shunt woke me up so I decided to bathe it in warm salt water as my Mum used to swear by it.   It does go but if it worries you see Doc.

 

Sounds like you have done so well, I was told I'd never walk again but 250 yards then back aches on a good day!! 

 

I have had Epilepsy since puberty but noticed they had got stronger after SAH so Specialist upped pills and been seizure free since new pills in Feb.  Touch wood !! Horrible things xx

 

We are in it for the long haul but you will get there and some days you might feel so tired and another day you can take on the world.  Then pay for it the following Day  xx 

 

Keep happy and stress free as we are survivors and welcome to BTG and others might tell you to drink water listen to them xx Do not listen to others problems just be happy and think about the times you have laughed so much,  it really helps.

 

Wishing you all the best and Welcome to BTG xxxx  Now a smile please  xx

Hey Pat,

 

Sorry it took so long for me to reply but for some reason I just saw this.

Yes we are blessed !!!

 

I was fortune even that my bleed sealed itself off so I do not know what its like to have a shunt, however I still have shooting pains in the area of the bleed and the doctor tells me that it is normal.

 

I had my in 2016 and was able to go back to work 11 months later. I have be  able to remember most of my past but not all and I do not remember 5 day of the 14 day hospital stay.

I have headaches on a daily bases now some days are worse than others. Just pray that the headaches will get better with time and different meds.

I truly wish I could find more research on the subarachnoid hemorrhage without a clip or shunt.

 

Wishing you all the best ,

Melissa

Thank you Melissa I occasionally  get small headaches and some shooting pain every once in a while in the area, the hardest thing for me is I feel like I am in a fog some days are better then others and becoming very forgetful :(I am s o happy for you that you did not need a clip or a shunt.  I hope different medicine can help your headaches that is wonderful that your bleed sealed itself.

 

I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST

That's the spirit Pat,

When I get short term memory loss my Hubby and Daughter laugh, but now Tut a sure sign I am getting better. xxxx

 

We will both get there and when down just come into Green room and have a chat with others, so many have had bleeds etc.  We are like a Family who when our own get fed up we can share a problem with each other.  You take care of yourself xxxx Nice typing to you lol xxx
