  1. Thank you both for all of your kind words and comments! It’s great to hear your advise, and I will definitely take a look at the threads you recommend and show them to family. I have been drinking as much as I can, usually trying to hit a 2ltr a day target. I have also notified DVLA who have contacted the hospital and received info from them, I’m just waiting for them to make their final decision... but who knows how long that will be! With regard to my SAH itself, the reason for the stent was because I had a deformed artery with four anyerisms off of it, and one had bled, but they had to stop the other three from doing the same. Very scary, and absolutely no warning! On the plus side, my recovery is going very well. I just need to learn to rest and not push myself too much, which is hard when you’re not good at sitting still and like your independence. Happy days! Good luck to you too with your ongoing recovery. Kind regards Sophie
  2. Hello everyone I suffered from an SAH and I am 28, and at the time of writing this I am 7 weeks post SAH. It is great to read all of your comments and stories. Following my SAH I had a stent fitted in the offending artery in my brain, and I wonder how others have had their SAH fixed on this forum? Has anyone else had this done, and how was your recovery? Seven weeks on from my operation I am not allowed to do any heavy lifting and still not allowed to drive. Physically, I was very lucky following the SAH, but I do suffer with bad head aches. I suppose my biggest question is do they really ease with time like I’ve been told, and how soon do people get back driving again? I feel so lucky with the outcome of my SAH, and I have a very supportive family, but no matter how much I try to explain I still don’t think they truly know what I mean sometimes. I think the biggest thing for me after this is my outlook on life has changed totally! I am less precious about things that are not important. I also worry sometimes that I will never fully be how I was before. Perhaps I’m being impatient with myself in lots of ways, but I just want to get on with life. It feels like someone pushed the “pause” button 7 weeks ago. Sophie
