  1. I am a retired/disabled ophthalmologist (it’s actually my glaucoma vision loss which disabled me) I had a NASAH five years ago and the onset was heralded by a terrible headache, like many I struggled with headaches but I was lucky and they pretty much went away after 6 months. 2 1/2 years ago I needed cancer surgery, general anesthesia, and when I awoke I had a terrible headache not as bad as the acute bleed headache but really bad and worse than anything other than that.

Also if you are in the states I would say consider skiing in Utah and not Colorado. Even before I had a bleed I would get altitude headaches and last couple of years I just never ski
  4. Elizabeth This is my first post but I am a surgeon also who recently had a bleed, the big difference is my practice was winding down and was already much lighter, I am late 50s. Your husband has to realize is that guy who he was pre bleed died that day he will never come back which is not to say healing won't occur, as a previous poster noted he had a life changing event. OK specific advice.
