Grace Posted October 6, 2010 Share Posted October 6, 2010 Hello Everyone, First, I want to say that this is a great support group. For the past month, I have read forums and articles, which have been so helpful. Now I know I’m not alone. My SAH occurred on March 21, 2010 while I was working out with my trainer at the gym. After several repetitions on a weight machine, I felt a tremendous amount of pressure in my head. I knew something happened but I didn’t know what. I was about to tell my trainer when I became unconscious. My trainer caught me as I was falling off the machine. I was flailing while I was unconscious. When I became conscious, I could feel severe pain in the back of my head. I was rushed to the nearest hospital. Now thank goodness my trainer witnessed what happened because a couple of doctors ran out to ask him what happened. I know his answer helped the emergency room decide to scan my head. The scan showed the blood in my head but there was nothing this hospital could do. I was then rushed to a major hospital where two aneurysms were found. The one on the left side of my head had ruptured. The surgery (clipping) to stop the bleeding was explained to me and I had to sign papers to agree to the surgery on the next day. Then I finally reached my family, who live 200 miles away. Three months after the SAH, I had the unruptured aneurysm on the right side of my head treated with the same surgery. I am recovering but still have fatigue and would have more depression and anxiety if I wasn’t on medication. I am planning to see a neuropsychologist and a neurologist. Thanks for listening!
