Had a SH

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am back after having my second Aneurysm sorted with coils, during the operation I had a SHbleed so it took longer to do more coils needed, it would seem the aerty was weak,where the second was. At least I was put to sleep for this one,not like the first one I had done 10 years ago.

When I was discharged the doctor said it could take 3 to 6 months to recover.

Have to try and stay positive, patient and try vand do as I am told.

Thanks for all your kind messages before I went into Frenchay hospital, we all need each thankyou.

If this is my second mail on the subject sorry seem to have lost the first mail.

Take care all Love Sonia xxxxx

Hi Sonia

Glad that all went well and you're recovering fine - recovery is different for everyone after a bleed and I haven't met anyone who has recovered fully after six months.

Debs, try not to worry too much - every twinge or pain put me into a blind panic. When I had my initial bleed they scanned all over for other anuerysms and found one next to the burst one - they decided to coil both at the same time. The first scan is always a worrying time, but there's nothing but relief when you come out and have been told that everything is fine - stay positive hun.
