Lin-lin Posted October 2, 2010 Share Posted October 2, 2010 Hi all, I have had a surprise letter from my Consultant today. I last saw him in July 2010 and it was pretty much assumed that it would be our last meeting. He said that for the sake of completeness I should undergo a further CT Scan, to assess, not so much the cause of the SAH, but the hydrocephalus I suffered after it. (I narrowly escaped having a shunt fitted by a matter of days.) Apparently, I continue to have 'dilated ventricles,' i.e. water on the brain. It's not improved since December 2009; (but conversely it means that it's not got any worse either.) Has anyone else had experience of this? I am assuming that the lack of urgency on the part of the hospital means that they are not overly worried about it. I haven't been given an appointment date as yet, so had it been a big deal, they surely would have called me in immediately(??) All this however, has reminded me of the infamous joke in the 1970s space drama, Blake's 7; about the best thing for water on the brain being a tap on the head! Oh for true life to be as simple!
