AndyH Posted May 15, 2007 Share Posted May 15, 2007 Hello everyone, Just got back from seeing the rehab consultant and we asked a few questions, as we all do. I asked if there was anyway that she could help me to get Heather to understand the severity of what happened and how the bleed affected her brain i.e where the bleed took place and how the areas affected work. It was a very positive meeting and she said that having spoken to Heather for a short period she was aware of a vast improvement. The first thing she did was take us through the scan reports from day 1. The first two scans (CT) confirmed that Heather had had 1 massive bleed followed by a 2nd 2 hours after. Most of the blood was around the middle and the left hand front side although the bleed occured on the right hand posterior comm artery. She then took us on to the angiograms that confirmed the position of the rupture. After that she took us through the operation findings and consequences. It was at this point she said that Heather had a 12mm tear in the artery!! 12 MM! I never thought it could be possible to have such a big tear! Then I thought 'well is it?' So, how big was yours? Take care one and all. Andy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
