I was just sent home after a week in the ICU after a NASAH. Initially doctors thought it was an aneurysm, but multiple CT scans, an MRI and an Angiogram all showed no evidence of an aneurysm.
I was lucky because my bleed was "small." All of the blood has already been reabsorbed. I feel pretty good but I have a sore neck, headaches, and generally I'm just tired.
I think what I'm struggling with the most is just accepting this happened at all. It feels so surreal. I was supposed to run a marathon 8 days after my SAH happened. I'm pretty dang healthy, no alcohol, no smoking, low BP, etc. Does anyone else have a hard time knowing how to feel about this? It's a big deal but I'm ok... I'm ok but it's a big deal... It's been messing with my mind.
It's nice to see a forum. I love seeing some people talking about exercise again. How do you trust your body to be strong again after something like this??
I look forward to hearing more from you all
