Jan Posted May 9, 2016 Share Posted May 9, 2016 Hi, my name is Jan, I had my SAH 7th June 2015 Thunderclap headache - ambulance - blue lighted to hospital I remember very little after that. An aneurysm had burst, this was clipped (craniotomy). I spent five days in critical care conscious but totally unaware of what had happened. I was then transferred to a neuro ward, having no idea why I was in hospital i asked a nurse, she said 'you've had an SAH' I'd never heard of one..helpful? Not! Anyway very long story short I'm left with weakness and numbness in my left arm and leg, my short term memory is rubbish (can't remember where it went!) I also have an unruptured aneurysm found at first follow up scan. My neurosurgeon said it was too small to worry about and the wrong shape to coil..a ticking time bomb I am!! I was very active prior to the SAH working full time in my own business. I now struggle with the fatigue and the frustrations of what I can't achieve yet. I no longer yearn for the 'old Jan' but haven't adjusted to the new one yet. Thank you for reading This wonderful site has helped me enormously reading advice and comments from others. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
