malanamm74 Posted July 28, 2022 Share Posted July 28, 2022 I am a 48 yr old female who had a SAH on May 28th, 2020. Actually i am probably one of the luckiest people in regards to my aneurysm. I was actually already in the hospital when it happened. I had stomach surgery the day before. They don't think the surgery had anything to do with why I had the blood vessel in my head rupture. They were actually getting ready to send me home soon as I was recovering so well. My mother was with me and we were talking, and she told me I suddenly yelled out no, and then became unresponsive. She hit the call button and yelled for help. I have a few foggy memories from after that, but it was about two weeks later that I clearly remember. I was in the icu or neurological icu for 24 days. I ended up having to have a drain put in to remove the blood building up around my brain, and I had it in for 3 weeks. They did 2 surgeries and put in a stent. At the time of my discharge I didn't have any complications other than a constant mild headache. However a few months ago I started noticing that I was having several issues. I started trying to find information about other people who have had SAH to find out if others have experienced this. This is where I finally ended up. So now I am looking forward to being able to speak to others who can relate to me with all of this. Malana 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
