JazzyDog Posted June 10, 2011 Share Posted June 10, 2011 I had a rupture Aug 31, 2009. I was not expected to survive, and when I did they figured I'd never walk or talk again. I've talked all along, lost no memory. I have lost my left side. I walk like a zombie - no knee bend and this throws my right hip out. I have no sensation on the right - can't feel hot or cold though my brain does react to something hot by creating a feeling of discomfort. I also lost hearing on the right and have been living with the whooshing in my ear since the rupture. I *finally* have a follow up with an Ear Nose Throat specialist in late July. The rupture was in the centre back of my brain. It was coiled and then re-coiled due to compression. I found this site through a Facebook group about a week ago and have been peeking in... It has been comforting to see that some of the things I`ve been living with (hot flashes, whooshing ears, frustration, flat emotions, too much emotion, fear that I`ve come as far as I`m going to) are all `normal`.
