sistermary Posted March 6, 2012 Share Posted March 6, 2012 Hi there all, i found this wonderful site by chance.My sister suffered a massive bleed to the brain and a burst annuerysm plus a stroke in jan 2012.It was revealed on catscan that she had 7 annuerysms.They operated doing the cranial operation through the skull.She has now been allowed home and is doing extremely well.They have clipped 3 and left a tiny one to the right side,she has another three on the left of which we are told she will require 5 to 7 years of treatment.She has no long term memory problems whatsoever which is amazing.She has a problem with the short term which is to be expected.She is improving daily.I would like to ask is there anyone else on here that has had this amount of annuerysms as reading your stories i have only found people with two.It would help her extemely if we have someone we can relate to.This site has already helped her enourmously.For example she is not aware at what she can and cant do,on reading please tell me if i am wrong 3months seems to be on average the amount of time needed to then start weening yourself back to a full normal life .Obviously it may take a lot longer than three months to be able to resume even 20% we are prepared for that and that it is each individual but any feedback would so appreciated.Also by full normal life i mean even if that is not 50% of what she was at before all of this ,she is living breathing and has so many loving caring people around her ,and for what shes been through is so lucky to only have seconds of being totally vacant and unaware and short term memory loss.thankyou for such a wonderful site.
