  1. Hi Rory Welcome to BTG and so glad you found us - this place is truly a life saver. As for what your Doc told you about 6 weeks - I wish they'd look at forums like this before they give unrealistic expectations. You'll find a wealth of information and experience here - as well as true understanding of the journey that lays ahead of you. Definitely join in the banter in the Green Room - one of the biggest saviours for me was keeping a sense of humour alongside the determination, and the Green Room is where we "meet" to have a chat and laughs.

  2. Hi Clare Congratulations on your six year anni-versary. You've certainly been and inspiration and incredible support to so many on here. Like Subs said, you've set yourself challenges and have never given up reaching those goals. You're amazing and I hope your day is too xxxx
  3. Hi Ann Fantastic news for you - fingers crossed the news is great in July too xx
  4. Happy Anni-versary Super Hope you've had a lovely day - congrats xx
  5. Hey there Agree with everything Tina has said - be kind and accepting to yourself as well. Regarding the uncontrollable outbursts - I see you're only 3 years older than me and I'm going through the same thing at the moment. However, I do know what's causing them - the flaming menopause!!! And I do notice that the symptoms are worse the nearer it would be to my monthly cycle. Is that ringing true for you at all? It's still worth talking to your doctor if you can, they may be able to help somehow, but identifying the reasons is just as helpful and may help
  6. Hi Phil As Subs said, no need to apologise, its what we're all here for. Fatigue is a huge, and somewhat unknown, result of SAH - some suffer, some don't. Mine didn't really disappear or abate for about 5 years. I was back at work really quite soon and two years on was working from 9am to 6pm - it was horrendous. I'd come home and fall asleep for an hour and then still sleep for 8 hours a night. I can honestly say that it took a good 5 to 6 years for it to calm down. I now work in a very busy school office from 8am to 4pm and the mental energy is still draining, bu
  7. Hey there - a question to ask is whether the bleed was caused by an aneurysm or a tear in the artery - it may go someway to explaining why they couldn't locate the bleed if they can't tell you either way.
  8. Hi there Don't worry about posting in the "wrong" place just now - we Moderators can move things where they need to be. Welcome to BTG and although we cannot give you medical advice, you will find a wealth of experience and sympathy here. Have a look around the forum and see if there's anything that you find of use or help to you. Right now you need to concentrate on you and try to look on the bright side of things as much as possible It's a long road to recovery but you can make as many pit stops along the way as you like. It's not a race and everyone r
  9. Hi there Sorry that this wait is making you anxious, but due to COVID a lot of things will be delayed. I had a follow up scan 6 months and 18 months after and nothing since - I'm now 14 1/2 years on. If there is a telephone number on the letter, try calling and ask where they're at with your appointment, but COVID has had a huge impact on appointments and operations, so though it's easier said than done, try not to worry too much.
  10. They certainly do Sarah - will be interested to hear all about it when you've been. Hope you manage to relax and enjoy Christmas hun xx
  11. Ah Sarah WOW four scans - at last they're being thorough. What types are they, do you know? And yes, so much for trying to save them paper - at least you now have your appointment / s and its not too long to wait. Take care hun xx
  12. Hi Suzanne Congratulations on your first anni-versary - and yes, it's a very strange one to deal with - I was really quite scared and emotional on mine. Next year will be easier xx
