Hello everyone, I am so happy to have found this place!! I have felt totally alone with this for the last year and a half, and put a lot of pressure on myself to just get back to normal. I had my perimesencephalic subarachnoid haemorrhage in May 2017, and then developed hydrocephalus, so had an EVD in for 8 days. I was in hospital for a total of 11 days, and went back to full time, energetic work in the September. Now I can see it was way too early, but all I could find at the time online about this type of haemorrhage was that the prognosis was really good. I didn't see any storie
Hi, Im Gemma and I'd like to tell you my mother's story and ask some advice from anyone out there who can relate. my mum had her SAH 6 weeks ago (7/3/17) My mum is 50, very fit, non smoker. She found out she had an aneurysm 8 years ago, as it was small she was advised to just have it monitored each year and was told it wasn't at risk from rupture. She had a seizure and went into a comma 3 minutes after the headache and sickness started. Her SAH was graded as 5 (highest grade) as she was in a comma with GCS 3 on admission and did not regain any consciousne

Hi all Well I was feeling better and now for 2 days have been nauseous. Was sick once yesterday. However if I tip my head to one side it feels like everything then moves in my head about a split second later. Could the hydrocephalus be returning? It is 9 weeks since they removed the evd and a scan 3 weeks ago showed no fluid. Do othes have this dizziness feeling? Where do you go for advice.. Thanks xxxx
