  1. Thanks. I appreciate that no-one on here can offer medical advice. I just wondered if anyone had already asked the question somewhere else and had the information.
  2. Hello again I hope you’re all OK and avoiding covid. My mum is 99 and has been staying with us since just before Christmas. She has dementia and it’s very hard for her and for us to deal with. My reason for writing is to ask if anyone knows whether we are more at risk of getting dementia as we’ve had SAH? I’d hate for my sons and family to have to cope with me if I had it now I’ve seen first hand what it does to people. Just wondered if anyone here knows what our chances are. Stay well x
  3. Well done for reaching 7 years. Like you I was alone when it happened: driving home! It took quite some time before I could be driven along that road and then it was a bit of a white knuckle event. I have driven myself along there since although not alone and not in the same car. It seems we all live with the association of what we were doing at the time - brings it all back. Like you said though it does get a bit easier but never goes away. Take care x
  4. Thanks Skippy. Have a great Christmas and New Year. Stay well 😊
  5. I had coils 17 months ago and still no follow up scan yet and have started to wind myself up that something could go wrong without the check. Received a letter about six months ago to say I’m still on the list but there would be a delay due to Covid. I’m trying to be rational telling myself that presumably if ‘they’ were worried I’d have been seen but I’m afraid I’ll be overlooked or something. Has anyone else had to wait this long for their first follow up scan?
  6. Congratulations on your 18 year anniversary. Enjoy your day 😊
  7. Thanks everyone for your good wishes and positive advice. Much appreciated 😊👍
  8. One year on and I still have pain in my diaphragm and down my spine if I put my chin in my chest. I’ve mentioned it to doctor months ago but didn’t suggest anything. Guess it’s still a hangover in some way from SAH. Not had a follow up just a letter to say follow up will be delayed by at least 6 months due to backlog. Fingers crossed everything is as it should be.
  9. July 24 was the date. One year on and throughout that day I kept reliving what happened a year ago over and over. Pleased to say my balance is improving but still a bit iffy. My short term memory is still a bit frustrating. Still can’t remember dreams but I get tiny flashes of dreams that last for a minute or so after I wake up. I guess new pathways are slowly beginning to work which is amazing. Woken tonight by a sharp pain behind my ear which is odd and giving me cause for concern so I’m hoping it’s nothing going wrong. I do try not to live in fear of recurrence or shifting coi
  10. So sorry to hear of your loss. I haven’t been on here for a while. Win was always so positive and upbeat. Singing to everything. She will be greatly missed.
  11. Congratulations Jean three years is a great milestone. I’m at nine months since mine so your post is encouraging. Take care and stay well. Sally x
  12. Dear Fiona Thanks for your reply. After having SAH it’s easy to fear that the slightest pain in the head might suddenly develop into something much worse. Nine months in I still get headaches but take them more in my stride for now. Best wishes Sally
  13. Thanks Michelle for your reply. It’s really worrying and easy to wonder if it’s (SAH) happening again. Guess it’s a case of keep calm and carry on. Wishing you well Sally x
  14. Thanks everyone for your replies. As if we don’t all have enough to deal with with our various deficits our minds play these tricks on us. I hope we all find peace from the memories at some point. Thanks again
  15. Really disappointed tonight: haven’t had an aura for six months and I’ve just been woken up with one. Trying not to be scared. Also feels like my brain is being squeezed slightly. Just when I thought I was getting somewhere.
