  1. Thanks for all your replies and help.. daffodil i have notified my travel insurance already and they have honered my existing policy at no extra cost until renewal in October.. i cant imagine how much it will shoot up to then !! So i have made a note of the company you mentioned.. i will ring the trauma team at hospital and ask them. Thanks Paula xx
  2. Thanks Clare, My consultant said I can fly in future but I had to cancel a Poland trip last weekend as it was to soon and I wouldn't have gone anyway.. But had to see my own GP yesterday and she said she would suggest cancelling my May holiday as the pressure of flying might affect me !! Am now in a quandary and worried xxx
  3. Hi my name is Paula, I am 53 years old and new to the site. My aneurysm burst on Saturday 9th Feb. I was just ready to go out with some of my work colleagues to celebrate a birthday. I came downstairs all ready to go, then came the worst headache and neck pain I've ever had, I said to my hubby there's something wrong with me and I think he should call for an ambulance.. I lay down on the floor and passed out, on waking I started vomiting and couldn't stop. My hubby had rung my sister who is a nurse and had just finished her shift, lucky she lives in the next road. She quickly came round and rang for an ambulance. The ambulance said it would be up to 2 hours!! My hubby and sister got me in the car and took me to our local A and E. It was packed to the rafters but they took me through more or less straight away. I felt dreadful and in agony, after waiting a while I had a scan. When the results were back they told us what it was and we couldn't believe it. I was quickly transferred to the fantastic Walton neurological centre and I was operated on the next day, I had a Web aneurysm embolization device fitted, they said it was 8mm aneurysm.. I was very, very scared and when the surgeon and doctors were speaking to me I was petrified but they said if I hadn't had gone in the outcome would have been catastrophic!! After a couple of days in ICU I went on to another ward. I still felt dreadful and got an infection. As the days went by and I started to feel a tad better. I met lots of lovely ladies on my ward who most had gone through the same thing. Most of them had suffered some sort of disability. I was so lucky, I had not . The consultants, doctors and nurses were fantastic all they way. After over 2 and half weeks in hospital I was discharged. I have now been home 3 weeks feeling bit better but still extremely tired while doing nothing and still very headachy.. I'm trying to be positive but am going through the why me ? Will it come again and scared of doing anything stage. It's good to be able to speak or see how others are doing and coping and knowing your not alone.. Wishing everyone lots of love in your recoveries. Paula xx
  4. Hi all.. I'm new to the group ...I had my sah 6 weeks ago and had Web aneurysm embolization device fitted.

I feel i must try and overcome this as I'll end up never going again.. Thanks Paula xx
