Hi all, I am new to the forum so a big hello to everyone. A short introduction - my SAH (grade 1A, blister aneurysm) in mid Dec 2018 surprised docs and nurses given my age (mid 30s) and clean medical history. Having stayed in HDU for a week or so, I moved to the neurological ward for about two weeks before returning home with some general weakness and eye sight problems, but no major physical difficulties. Similar to simonk, https://web.behindthegray.net/topic/7261-coming-up-to-1-year-post-sah/?tab=comments#comment-130884 Personally I feel quite good about my physical recovery so far (limited headaches and dizziness, sight much improved), but family and friends insist that I need longer to recuperate. Having gone through some of the posts here, I definitely understand the need to take it slow and for phased return to work as far as possible. Unfortunately, it would be difficult to arrange shorter hours due to my job nature, so I am afraid it is all-or-nothing in terms of resuming work. So my question is this - do you have any experience with jumping back into full time fast paced positions about 2-3 months post SAH? If so, how did you cope? My main worry is that my seemingly good recovery and conditions are largely due to the ample amount of rest I have at home now, and yet I could not truly test out my progress unless I am in my old "normal" high pressure circumstances again. Thank you in advance. Any thoughts or sharing would be greatly appreciated! caw
So my hubby is 2 months post SAH and had 3 coils fitted. He was a VERY heavy/long term smoker before and has completely given up now. He has turned to vaping which he is enjoying a lot. I don't think that he could survive without it. Has anyone got any info about vaping, is it ok? Its very early days I know and there isn't much research out there. The Dr says it's ok and that it's only cigarettes that are bad news for aneurysms etc. Any thoughts?
@weedrea shared these great links this week and thought it worth making more known in forum the news of young actress Emilia Clark sharing account of her SAH and now founding a charity to help rehab for younger folk impacted by this. She has had a large bleed and lasting effects but 8 yrs on has talked for the first time about this. https://news.sky.com/story/game-of-thrones-star-emilia-clarke-almost-died-from-stroke-after-first-series-11672030 https://www.thedailybeast.com/emilia-clarke-game-of-thrones-star-reveals-she-had-2-aneurysms "Clarke's decision to break her silence over her health problems comes as she launches her own charity, SameYou, aimed at supporting young people with brain injuries and helping them to access resources." Also interesting piece in the New Yorker about it. https://www.newyorker.com/culture/personal-history/emilia-clarke-a-battle-for-my-life-brain-aneurysm-surgery-game-of-thrones
