RoseGarden Posted July 21, 2018 Share Posted July 21, 2018 Hi, I found this forum after searching for more information on life after a SAH. Dad is almost 89 and had a SAH following a bad fall. (The fall was the result of him passing out, so he hit his head pretty badly). The SAH happened about ten days after the fall, after he'd been released from hospital. Initially he seemed fine, but as time passed he developed problems with motor function and ended up back in hospital where an MRI showed a SAH. The consultant emphasised that the bleed was very small and that dad is recovering well. Dad has regained a lot of his motor function but still needs to walk with a rollator and shower with help from carers. Although Dad is elderly he was very fit and active for his age before this happened so these are big changes for him. Dad is very confused by all of this. Of course the doctors have explained what happened to him, as have I, but it hasn't sunk in. I'm just thankful that it was so small. I appreciate it could have been much, much worse.
