  1. Hi Jennifer A very warm welcome to BTG. So sorry to hear your Mom has been so poorly. Such a very worrying stressful time for you. So pleased you found us. You will find a wealth of information here and lots of friendly caring support. Sometimes these things do just happen and we never get answers as to why. It is very odd i agree. I had a brain stem aneurysm that ruptured. Symptoms just came out of the blue. I was perfectly healthy in every way. I was 45 when it happened. Its good to hear you are getting some help from family, as being a carer, also
  2. Hi Gurveena A very warm welcome to BTG I also had my vaccine a few weeks ago. I had a headache and felt off for a day. I also had Covid for 2 weeks over Christmas, it was horrible. Maybe that's why i had a slight reaction. I have been absolutely fine since and glad to have had the vaccine. I had the Pfizer one and my second one booked for April. As SM has suggested, contact your Doctor or Nurse Specialist if worried. Take care Tina xx
  3. Hi Rory A very warm welcome to BTG, As you have found, there is a lot of very helpful information here. So many of us leave hospital with little or no information on what to expect in recovery. I also wish you all the best with your recovery and agree with all the lovely Clare has said above. Feel free to also join in the daily banter in the Green Room. https://web.behindthegray.net/forum/9-the-green-room/ We look forward to hearing how you are doing. Take care Tina xx
  4. Hi WLG3 A very warm welcome to BTG, glad you found us. There is a wealth of information here and friendly caring support. So sorry you are experiencing loss of vision. As you say, i would definitely get checked out by your Neurologist for some peace of mind and answers. I don't have a stent , but there are others here that do. Also others on blood thinners. https://web.behindthegray.net/search/?q=stents&quick=1 https://web.behindthegray.net/search/?q=blood thinners&quick=1 Above are a couple of links that may he

  7. Hi Shazza A very warm welcome to BTG, glad you found us. I can only repeat what the lovely Ann has said above. Some great advice. It really is very early days in your recovery. I think you may have gone back to work too soon and your body is telling you that. Could you have a chat with work and go back on a slower phased return after you have rested. Perhaps two mornings a week and then gradually increase. See how you cope. Have regular meetings. As Ann has said everyone is different in their recovery. Listen to you body, rest lots and drink pl

  11. Hi Xmartz Sending you a great big virtual hug xx You are not worthless at all, you have been through a huge trauma. Be kind to yourself as our lovely Karen once said to me on here. Do you think you could sit down and write down all the things you are struggling with or getting frustrated with. Your children are adults and maybe as a family you could have a chat about ways they could help you. You may have done this already xx Also have you contacted your Doctor or Consultant about your angry out of control outbursts. There are people you can talk to a
  12. Hi Allejam Congratulations on your 1st year NASAH Anniversary. Good to hear that there has been improvements. Sorry to hear you are still having problems with weakness and breathlessness. I hope your scan gives you some answers. I had an SAH and found things took at least 2 years and even longer to improve. 13 years down the line i still have to pace myself as still get the dreaded fatigue. One year is still very early in your recovery. You had a large volume widespread bleed. Wishing you well with your ongoing recovery. Please let us know how y

  18. Hi JH a very warm welcome to BTG Such a stressful worrying time for you and your family. The good thing is your Mum is in the right place and the Drs are doing all they can to find the answers.

  21. Hi there I hope your eye surgery goes well. Like the others i also have not had a bad headache after anaesthetic. I did used to get bad sickness, but like Super Mario, once i told them it has not happened since. It could be you are very dehydrated from fasting. I was told i could drink water up until 7am before surgery. Maybe if not too late you could ask them to clarify that and if it would be allowed and work for you. Take care and let us know how you got on. Tina xx
