  1. Hey Jenni, you didn't make it any worse and some people have a post coital migraine head, which is nothing to do with a SAH.

     

    There are lots of different accounts on the website of peoples experiences. I wasn't operated on straight away and it wasn't straight forward.

     

    I can only say, that you're early days into recovery ... it can take 3 months for the blood to fully dissapate down the spinal cord. Keep your fluids up/hydrated and make sure that you rest up when you need to.

     

    I would say that yes, you need to let things settle - re: eyesight. They're looking after you and understand your situation. 

     

    There's not many of us who've had to stop driving long term ... keep positive and even at 14 years post SAH, I'm still seeing improvement. x

     

  2. Hi Jenni, don't be embarrassed as you'll probably be surprised as to how many people have had a SAH after being intimate. It's any spike in blood pressure....you could have been sitting on the loo and straining, in the gym, gardening ... etc.

     

    If you've got an aneurysm lurking and about to rupture, it will do it with any spike in blood pressure....whatever you're doing at the time ... lots of people on here that have had the SAH with different circumstances and post sex is one of them and you're not alone. I've been running this site for many years and we've heard everything, so there's no need to be embarrassed...we're here to help!

     

    So, go to the Introduce Yourself forum or the SAH forum if you want help and support with a specific problem. 

     

    And no, your outcome wouldn't have been any different if you had revealed to the Doc that you were intimate before the SAH ... It's as simple as that.... having a blood pressure spike could have happened whatever you were doing at the time, as the aneurysm was there ... don't feel guilty. We've had the fittest of people on here, who were in the gym, bike riding or the same as you, or on the toilet and many other examples.

     

    It honestly does and will get better for you ..... xx
