mandy2812 Posted June 12, 2018 Share Posted June 12, 2018 Hi, i am sorry but I am new to this and not sure if I am doing this right. My husband had a SAH a year ago tomorrow. Life is very different in some ways now. He was lucky he has not had any physical effects, just his emotions and pain, fatigue and sometimes memory. He is really struggling coming to terms with what has happened and that he nearly died. Thank god for our health services. Whilst they were coiling his aneurysm it bled into his right eye. It wasn't for a week that we realised he could not see out of that eye due to the build up of blood. They have since cleaned the eye and removed the blood. He gets a lot of head discomfort, not always pain but sometime it is pain. He still gets very tired and I have noticed his appetite is different now. He has pushed himself as he just wants to get back to normal and is now at work 4 days a week, he says he is fine with this. He had a routine MRI scan in Dec '17. They didn't really say anything, just if there was anything wrong the consultant would be in touch. We had a letter saying that all was well and he would have another MRI in June 19. Strangely he has not seen any one other than the specialist nurse ( who he saw a couple of weeks after discharge) who just talked about what happens which we thought was strange, yet with his eye he has been back 5 times for surgery check up etc. He is really worried about a number of things: Will this happen again? Why does his right eye ( operation on this eye) keep having blood vessels burst? Will he ever be free from the headaches? Will he ever sleep properly again as he doesn't sleep properly? We have tried everything (other than counselling as he does not want that). Our GP's mean well but don't really understand or know what to do. They have to contact the hospital for advice. He eats healthy (but he did before and used to run 5 miles three times a week) takes vitamins, lives on pain killers etc. If anyone has any advice, as I seem to always say the wrong thing, I would be very grateful.
