Caroline32669 Posted May 17, 2011 Share Posted May 17, 2011 Hello, I just had an SAH, non aneurysm on May 2. Although I am somewhat medically competent, I am feeling a little overwhelmed right now. I am hoping someone can help me with a time frame for recovery? My doctors say I can go back to work on May 24, but I feel emotionally ragged, am having excruciating back pain (which all the nurses thought was unusual) and I feel totally unready to return to work in about one week. Is this normal? Should I be feeling better? The headaches are better, but the back and leg pain are disabling. I just want to make sure I am not just being a wimp. I am scared to death to be dependent on pain pills. Thank you if any body has advice. Carolyn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
