lynnandpaul Posted January 24, 2015 Share Posted January 24, 2015 Hi all, Finding this site has been a godsend. So many resources and so many people with the same thing in common. My name is Paul. My wife Lynn suffered a SAH secondary to an aneurysm just over 3 weeks ago. She was taken to our local hospital by ambulance then onto Kings College Hospital where she had her op. At the moment I'm unsure whether it was a grade 1 or a grade 3 as her ward notes said 3 but her discharge notes say 1. I will be calling the hospital next week to find out which. So, she has just finished her course of nimodipine which is heartening and seems to be doing really well, so far as her injury is concerned anyway. Of course, Lynn is tired and her sleep is all over the place but apart from these things and double vision, she says she feels fine. One thing that is an issue is that she has what she describes as a "relentless ache" in her thighs and occasionally, her lower back. We've spoken to the support nurse at Kings and also our GP and they both say that this is down to having 17 days of bed rest. Though is could possibly be due to the blood in the CSF irritating nerves and will eventually go. True, Lynn's thighs seem to be quite a bit thinner than she went in plus she also had some lower back problems about 3 years ago but the painkillers that she's been prescribed seem to have little effect. Has anybody else had this problem? And if so, what did you do? It's very very unusual for Lynn to cry but this is reducing her to tears as the ache is so bad. Just looking for a bit of direction Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
