Dogenzenji Posted August 25, 2011 Share Posted August 25, 2011 Hi there ! My partner suffered an SAH last week, now 8 days in. The aneurysm was coiled about 24 hours after the incident and was succesful. Throughout my partner was conscious and alert with sense of humour intact. She is on nimodipine every 4 hours and keeping the fluids up (2-3 litres a day), an MRI scan 2 days ago was good. Today she has learned that she is going to be discharged tomorrow from the Walton centre in Liverpool, this does seem 'early' but the consultant says the operation was a complete success. I guess what we both need to know is what to to expect in the early days? The consultant mentioned that care in the first three months is critical...what are the chances of any more 'emergencies'? There has been some taste changes and a visual afterimage that is fading but apart form that I for one am just hoping that the life threatening stuff is over and I can just give her the best care I can in the coming months / years... Any advice this early in? Thanks & Regards Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
