RB-R Posted November 7, 2010 Share Posted November 7, 2010 Hello everyone i'm 34 year old who has four children ( 11,10, 6, 5 ) , we all moved to Australia FROM THE uk IN jAN 2010.It was all going well untill June 15th when i came home from work and had just put tea on the table for the kids when i felt i pain rip through my head.I made to my bedroom where i lay on the bed by then i had lost my speech and had no control of my motor skills.I tryed to get off the bed to get help but i could'nt move my legs. My husband was not due home for a couple of hours. My eldest came in to see where i had gone and could see straight away somthing was wrong.About half a hour later my husband came home early where he took one look at me and new somthing was wrong. About hour from the 1st pain i was in ED where the dr told my husand it was prob just a headache and said he could go hoe to the kids while i waited for a CT scan . Well when i came out of the scan he had changed his mind and told me that i had to be blue lighted to another hosptial as i had had a bleed on the brain and that the swelling was very bad. My husband was called and then i was moved to another hosptial to ICU where i stayed for about 4days had a anigram which was clear, then i was moved to the ward where a week later i had another anigram which was clear. After a 10day stay i was sent home. But five days later my husband rushed me back in as i awoke in the night with my heart racing and breathless. They found out that i had a PE (blood clot on the lung) . I was then sent home two days later. My recovery is slow, i suffer with tirdness everyday, headaches feeling sick. i have numbness in my face when my headaches are bad.Im in bed most days by four. I feel like ill never get better, but know from reading your posts i need to take more time. Its great to find people who understand. thanks for reading x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
