Hi all, Many of you know but I will give a brief history...SAH May 2017, small stopped bleeding on its own, left me with no problems...3 night in hospital a ton of tests....sent on my way with only meds looking at trying to minimize head pain.. Rcvs 3 days after getting home, they said it was severe, I had an angiogrm that went into my groin up into the areas in my brain that were in spasm and bleeding and put verapamil into the vessels...total surprise to me, no one had mentioned this as a possibility...8 nights ICU, don't remember about 4 days, 2 weeks in rehab...left me with core weakness, couldn't sit up, balance issues and sensory issues. I also have problems with being overwhelmed, such as with a lot of people moving around, or walking past me and terrible fatigue... So I would like to know if others here whose story may be like me have had a SAH and RCVS ...did you know you were at risk? I was just so blown away with it. How did you recover from one or both?....I am in the US, so I am wondering if treatments differ..I was at a very prestigious hospital in Boston that has a first class neuro department.. May seem odd for me to be wondering about this after 2 years but I still am...I guess I am still trying to understand it all.. Thanks Jean
