Ann Posted February 25, 2008 Share Posted February 25, 2008 Hi, just a bit about me as a new member. I had SAH on Jan 18th of this year whilst on holiday in Majorca. Spent 5 days in ICU and a further 9 days on normal ward in Palma. Had CT, Catheter angiogram, doppler,MRI etc but no cause for SAH seen on these. I understand that it is normal to have a further CT angiogram or similar at a later date (mine is on 10th March)as in approx 22% of SAH's initially diagnosed as having no cause a burst aneurysm is seen at this later date, lets hope I am not in this %! It was worrying flying home but once the hospital gave me my "fitness to fly certificate" 16 days after SAH I just wanted to get home straight away. Pretty frustrated as I have now been home 3 weeks and although I now have date for CT I still have not got an appointment to see neurologist despite letter fom Spanish hospital saying I should see someone within 2 to 3 days of returning home, he says he does not want to see me till after CT, that will mean at least 6 weeks rather than 2 to 3 days and meanwhile I am not under the care of anyone!!I feel rather abandoned as I had no idea what to expect re recovery etc until i found this site. Still extremely tired, emotional and get lots of headaches and strange noises in ears but from what I have read here that makes me totally normal, that is good to know!Thanks to everyone for posting their experiences. Really helpful. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
