On the 14th Feb 2011 I had a SAH. After feeling a sudden and extremely painful headache I started to get a very painful and stiff kneck. My husband and I rushed to my local hospital and the next morning I had a Scan where they found that I had a bleed on the brain. I was transported to the John Radcliff Hospital in Oxford to the Neurosciences ward, had a more detailed scan and underwent an operation within the hour to fit 4 coils by angio. The scan also found that I have another 8mm aneurysm on my front lobe that could have been there for the last 20 years and a cluster of small aneurysms at the back of my head. I am currently waiting for my 6 week post op check up to find out what they are going to do with the larger one at the front. I am now at home recovering and finding life difficult at times, wanting more information but feeling very anxious about what I will find out. I am making progress but feel tired all of the time, keep getting a burning sensation at the back of my head and pains in my lower back so find it hard sitting down for very long. I have seen my GP who has further blood tests and have been informedthat I have to make a radical change to my lifestyle. Not that I thought it was that bad as I don't go out, like the quiet life at home but have been told that I have stop smoking (start my patches tomorrow) and I have very high Chlesterol so have started statins and will be seeing a dietician to change my diet soon. My sister told me about this forum and today my doctor did as well as im finding life hard at the moment and need to talk to people who have been through the same thing and are either going through what I am or have come out the other side. When will life get back to normal?
I know someone who lives in Heaven and I miss them more and more every day!, be careful who you open
