  1. Hi Everyone I haven't been on for a while and hope you are all well I would like to ask if anyone still suffers from headaches following a SAH. I had mine coiled 6th july 2015, I am now back working full time but I have a constant headache ftom the moment I wake up And normally more so by the end of the day. Some days are that bad I can't function properly, my Gp suggests that it is the legacy of my bleed and how lucky I am thats all I have Although I do still get really emotional at times. I have asked to speak to someone at neuro

  3. RE.DVLA Having had numerous conversations with various people at the DVLA, , no one seems to want to take ownership of who finally decides when you can drive.

  4. Superb Clare Safe driving, I know how you feel, I too felt strange after 4 months off the road but it allows us to go further afield without relying on family, friends and !!!!! Public transport !!!! Like many it seemed like an uphill battle with the dvla but we get there in the end I still had the old style paper licence and now waiting on my photo id one coming back, prob take another 9 weeks Davie.H
  5. Hi Win Did you have times when your personality changed? I am finding that, because im finding it difficult to retain information at times I get really frustrated and angry with myself......I dont take it out on anyone else, although sometimes I can say things that might not come out the way I intended, then I'm apologetic, I wasn't like this before or is it all part of my recovery, Davie x
  6. Many thanks Kris I can relate to all you have just written and recently have found it is getting better, although I do find it embarrassing when it happens out of the blue Particularly when I am around people who don't understand what I have been through, I then feel I have to explain to them what's happened And when they know that, it becomes more easy Davie x

Hi Sharon and welcome to BTG I havent actually started back work yet, think it will early Jan 2016 on a phased return I have been doing some Ikea furniture assembly for my daughters bedroom and found even 4 hours doing that is giving me headaches and feeling tired With having my sah early july 2015 then january already seems quite a daunting prospect, or am I expecting too much too soon Hope all is well and looks like only time and our bodies will tell us ehen the time is right Take care

  12. Hi there Just been reading through these postings and I guess i am very lucky I didnt have any contact with my employer until 8 weeks post SAH And then I was informed that due to the severity of my unfortunate condition, occupational health department would not interfere with my consultant, which basically means it will be up to him as to when I will return to work and not before Although I have a stressful job, my phase return will prob be 4 hours a day for 3 days a week over a month And then 4 hours a day 5 days a week over the following month And then full hours 3 days a week for month Th
