I only noticed this on Saturday when I was getting ready to go to my first gig post SAH...The smell of my hairspray made me feel physically sick, and so did my perfume - Chanel!!

Maybe its because they were the last strong smells I experienced before the haemorrhage and they did bring it all back to me.

Hey

I sometimes get the smell and taste of the anaesthetic and a metallic taste in my mouth. I've not developed a taste for anything that I didn't like before but whereas I used to hate the smell of freshly cut grass, now I love it - it reminds me of playing down by the brook next to the school fields when I was a kid.

I had a very heightened sense of smell for the first couple of months after SAH. I also loved coffee and went off the smell and Taste of it. Now have an exciting Latte occasionally but before I was the stronger the better.

When I heard people often like food that they didnt like before I was really hoping id have that side effect!

I drive everyone mad cos im a vegetarian that doesnt eat vegetables, in fact ive pretty much survived on cheese butties, chocolate and apples since I was 11! Unfortunatley still cant face any new foods and have even gone off cheese since bein in hosp! oh well.. nevermind!

I have developed an overwhelming love of Rowntrees Fruit Pastilles* - and only Rowntrees. Haven't gone off chocolate although Fiona has now banned me from virtually everything with caffeine in it until annie 2 is sorted, including chocolate, so haven't had any for weeks AND I MISS IT!!

Biker - whereabouts in Anglesey are you? My brother lives in Felin-y-heli and we visit Penrhyn Point loads, between Benllech and Moelfre, as my sister has a cottage there.

Hi Wendy and welcome to the site! :D

Look forward to hearing more about you, when you feel up to it.

I couldn't use a computer until about 3 months after the SAH, so you're doing pretty good. :)

Hope that you will find the site helpful during your recovery.

Take care,
