Vtxrider Posted November 20, 2011 Share Posted November 20, 2011 On Oct 12 as i was laying in bed all of a sudden I got the worst headache of my life. We were getting ready to go to Las Vegas for a hundred mile bike ride. Just like everyone else has described here. We called 911(US) and had paramedics respond. They checked my vitals and they were fine. They suggested that I go to an ER. We only live a mile and a half from a hospital so rather than pay for the expensive ambulance I had my wife take me. I was vomiting the whole way. Once there they did a CT scan on me. When they came back they told me they were transferring me to another hospital because there was bleeding in my brain. So I didn't get out of the expensive ambulance ride after all. After arriving at the new hospital they ran angiogram. When talking to my physician he told me that i was lucky, I didn't feel to lucky. To make this short I ended up spending 17 days in the ICU of which I can't remember a lot of them because of the coma I was in. After being released I spent 4 days out of the hospital. I was visiting with family members and the next thing I know I am waking up in the ICU unit again. I was out of it for a day and a half. I was in the ICU for a week. Now that I am out I am a little depressed. I'm always feel lousy can't ride my bike can't work on cars doesn't even look like I can even ride a hundred mile ride on my bike next year. (I already have one planned first of june for diabetes.) People tell me don't over do it. I tell them that is impossible I just go down the stairs then come back up and I have over done it. This has changed my life drastically. Most of the last few days is being spent doing nothing, I can't do that, but I don't want to feel like this either. My wife found this site and wanted me to look at it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
