Guest cjbo32 Posted October 27, 2006 Share Posted October 27, 2006 Hi to all, my mum had a SAH in may, she required a temporary shunt and was coiled. She is doing very well now considering her bleed was so bad. The main problems she is having are to do with her walking. She shuffles her feet and breaks into a run which she cant stop or control. As you can imagine this is very scary for her and is very restrictive in that we dont want her walking alone incase she falls and yet we dont want to impede on her progress or independence. The doctor has said its like symptoms that parkinson sufferers display but that she doesnt have parkinsons. He is now saying that the hydrocephalus may not be regulating itself normally and a permenant shunt may be needed. We have to wait and see how the problem progresses before we do anything. The problem was not always there since the bleed but it developed only quite recently so hopfully it will disapear in the same maner. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced walking problems like this or also slight incontinence problems? Thanks in advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
