Hello Stephen... sorry to learn that you feel your recovery is not going well. it is very early in your recovery and headaches, nausea and eye issues are experienced by many following an SAH/ NASAH bleed.

 

You mention that you have recently had an appointment with your neuro-consultant. Did they recommend you see an eye specialist?  What issues did you discuss then?

 

If in doubt please don`t hesitate to check with your GP too,  in particular about the need to frequently urinate.

 

Please also take the time to tell us more about your SAH experience by starting a thread in the Introduce Yourself Forum.

Hi Stephen, it is too easy to blame the SAH for ensuing problems when it may not be relevant at all.

It could be something else causing the problems. Peeing all the time could be a sign of a urine infection so please visit your doctor and take a sample with you, if only to rule that out.

 

Of course there maybe other reasons for your symptoms but only a doctor can tell you that after listening to you and possibly examining you.

Hi Stephen sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Please go and get yourself checked out by your GP or speak to a nurse specialist at the neuro unit you were treated. They will be the people with more idea as to whether it is the after effects of the SAH or something else.

 

Don't suffer, get it looked at and let us know how you get on.

Sorry to hear that you are not well. Make sure your blood pressure is under control because it can give you headaches. Make sure you don’t have a urinary tract infection and you might need a blood test for diabetes since symptoms can be thirsty/ frequent urination/ blurry vision etc . It s still early and please get lots of rest.

Hi Stephen, 

 

As all have said, you don't just get over an SAH like you would a bout with flu. I'm wondering if perhaps you started feeling better and then started doing more, perhaps having a set back. I know it's frustrating, but you really must allow time for healing. Stamina takes a long time to come back around and fatigue often results in headache.

 

As others have said, see your dr about symptoms that concern you. 

 

Best wishes, Colleen

Hi Stephen,

 

I'm sorry that you are not feeling well. When I was discharged from hospital the doctor told me to look out for two things, one was increased pressure in my head and the second was actually feeling the need to pee a lot. He told me that this could be the body trying to get rid of excess fluids in the head. So I would absolutely go see a doctor. I hope you feel better soon!

Stephen,

 

Listen to what others have put, do you drink water? If not start now !! (I can be bossy)

 

If you are not feeling well see Doc and get it sorted as stressing over it is no good for us.

 

Please see Doc and get yourself sorted as you know it makes sense.

 

Let us know how you get on xxxxx remember early days  xx 

Regards

Win x

We have all been there Stephen, I always come on here as people understand me. Just !Lol 

 

I have had the what happens now and why me,  you name it I've been there along with others.

 

This site makes it so easier to talk about our concerns, as we have all been there one way or another.

 

Good luck and if in doubt come on here if it helps.  Remember the notes, as I did a list and forgot to take it with me !!

Hi,

 

I cannot tell you the times I've fallen backwards.  The brain does not always heal "forward".  It's been almost 5 yrs and I still feel a fall back from time to time.  You are still new to this new brain game so be patient but also see your doctor if you need confirmation.  Reassurance helps tremendously.

 

The first year is the hardest and reality is still setting in.   My doctor told me it would take well over a year to feel better and he was not kidding.   We all want to feel better quick but it just does not always happen.   Good days are coming.  Have faith.

Hydrocephalus can be a complication of a bleed. The person usually has these symptoms

1) peeing a lot

2) balance problems

3) personality changes.

Young doctors are taught the mnemonic "wet, wacky wobbly". Maybe asking your doc about this  as it can be treated.

I slept through my Hydrocephalus for quite a while xx 

 

It didn't get any better and I remember nothing, too busy sleeping and the Surgeon said I needed a shunt.

 

My husband didn't want me to have another op and he nearly called it off but Surgeon rang him and said "If it was my wife I'd go ahead with it"  So I went in on the Thursday had op on Friday and awoke Saturday morning and finally knew where I was.  I'm told I sang to Nurse !! 

 

If you can keep awake and not drift off into cuckoo land as I did then it might clear up but ask Doc xx Good luck

Hey Stephen

 

Hope you are feeling better and have managed to see the doctor. Listen to what people are saying here, your brain has been through a lot, the blood irritates the neurones it leaks around and depending where these transmit messages can cause a variety of symptoms. For me the bleed irritated neurones to my eye, I have constant pain but I’m told it will go with time. 

 

I really hope you get sorted, as others have suggested peeing a lot could be symptomatic of something else. Best to get it checked. 

 

Best of luck to you.

 

Nikki
