Sophieskb Posted February 28, 2019 Share Posted February 28, 2019 Hello everyone I suffered from an SAH and I am 28, and at the time of writing this I am 7 weeks post SAH. It is great to read all of your comments and stories. Following my SAH I had a stent fitted in the offending artery in my brain, and I wonder how others have had their SAH fixed on this forum? Has anyone else had this done, and how was your recovery? Seven weeks on from my operation I am not allowed to do any heavy lifting and still not allowed to drive. Physically, I was very lucky following the SAH, but I do suffer with bad head aches. I suppose my biggest question is do they really ease with time like I’ve been told, and how soon do people get back driving again? I feel so lucky with the outcome of my SAH, and I have a very supportive family, but no matter how much I try to explain I still don’t think they truly know what I mean sometimes. I think the biggest thing for me after this is my outlook on life has changed totally! I am less precious about things that are not important. I also worry sometimes that I will never fully be how I was before. Perhaps I’m being impatient with myself in lots of ways, but I just want to get on with life. It feels like someone pushed the “pause” button 7 weeks ago. Sophie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
