  1. Hi my name is Adam I’m so glad I have found this page, reading topics and testimonials from people has really helped give me an insight to what has happened to me! I’m a 37 year old male from the Midlands in the UK On Monday 29th March whilst on the toilet I had the most horrendous headache and later on was extremely sick, I went to my local hospital where I had 2 CT scans and these showed I had a bleed on my brain. From there I was then taken in an ambulance to University Hospital Coventry, not knowing what was going on or what was going to happen to me!

  2. Hi Adam, and yes, a very warm welcome to the 'family'. I can't imagine what going through this alone in hospital must have been like for you, or for your family not being able to be there with and for you either. I agree with Sarah regarding the comment about yours "being a good one" - no-one can define a brain bleed as good in any way, shape or form! It might not have been "serious" but a bleed is a bleed and it has a massive impact on the patient and those around them. As for the 6 - 8 week recovery, a slightly unrealistic standard time frame given by med

  3. Hi Adam and a warm welcome to Behind the Gray. I'm sorry to hear you had such a rough time. Not knowing what was happening and having no family around to support either would be a bad experience in anyone's book. Anyway I'm glad you're back home now where you can concentrate on your recovery. 6-8 weeks seems to be the standard that doctors tell you, or at least mine did too. I think it is very misleading give a time span like that as many survivors take considerably longer than that. As for telling you that yours was one of the good ones, well I've never heard anyth
