  10. Many thanks for your words and it makes sense now. I have had recurring severe headaches and nausea now for around 6 months but didn't think anything about it until I received notification from neurologist, still waiting on my GP getting back to me. As for reading and processing I definitely struggle. I love listening to music but only on my level, but don't like noisy pubs etc or noisy grandkids in the house and I get angry with myself when I shout at them to keep the noise down, they are too young to understand really. Take care.
  11. Hi David, I hope you have had some clarification from your doctor/consultant and are feeling more reassured. After several years of scans monitoring of my previously ruptured and coiled aneurysm where I suffered a SAH, they had recently referred to my aneurysm as ‘recurring’ - meaning in my case it had started filling with blood and was up to 30% due to the coils compacting. I have just undergone further treatment for the recurring aneurysm and am relieved to be back and recovering. But some people just have monitoring and no further treatment needed. I’m not sure if this is the case with you, that’s the aneurysm that has recurred, as they put it, as you may have experienced symptoms of a second bleed if it was the bleed that had recurred, and would have probably required urgent attention if this was the case, but is always better to clarify something like this as I can only share my own experience. I completely get the not being able to read and retain although that is improving all the time, however I am still very sensitive to noise so music is out for me!
  12. So glad to hear this Jean, and that you are feeling more like yourself now. I had read that it affects people differently and can last varying times depending on how long you were out and the amount of anaesthesia etc. It’s sound like you are going in the right direction anyway! take care x
  13. I know exactly what you mean lol! Definitely a time of mixed emotions but the relief afterwards is like a new lease of life. I’ll be keeping an eye out for your progress report! 🤓
  14. Thanks so much Tina...Always good to get a good report. xx Jean

  17. Many thanks,I've had look and brings back some memories,some I don't have clue but others stood out,funny that isn't it
  18. Hi David, I also love playing scrabble! I play Words with Friends on my iphone which is almost exactly the same just handier. I agree with Jess ask your GP asap. I'm surprised they have not called you for a follow-up. I am from Canada so I'm unsure how your healthcare works there. I had my first SAH December of 2010 which I have fully recovered from but had another one July 2020. I was told it is very uncommon but then again I have another aneurysm that will be clipped this September. I do not want to alarm you though. Unfortunately, this things just happen. I do hope you receive answers soon. Stay safe!
  19. Welcome back, David! You are in awesome company 🙂
  20. Hello Davie and also a warm welcome to your return to the BTG site. You will certainly get lots of support from our members and feel you are not alone in dealing with the various complications from being a post SAH survivor. Keep strong and never give up. Telling of how you face your struggles will greatly help others too. Davie, you said you visited BTG back in 2015, so I did a little sleuthing. This certainly looks like your contact with us back then. I hope it jogs your memory. 😊 https://web.behindthegray.net/profile/2835-davieh/ Take care and keep in touch. Subs

  22. Many thanks,so glad I found it again. Regards
  23. Welcome back, hope you find lots of information to support you.
  24. Hi Jess Thank you for replying,yeah I should ask my GP, with regards to reading,it's been 6 years now and still no better,I do things like scrabble,but due to having to concentrate for a period of time then that's when the headaches and nausea begins ,it's like a vicious circle but physically I'm fine,and I never forget I'm a lucky one. Take care.
