ninja Posted January 13, 2009 Share Posted January 13, 2009 Hi All I continue to be amazed as to recovery times. I purchased Lesley Foulkes booklet on Subarachnoid Haemorrhage and on the subject of recovery it states " Recovery will take a minimum of several weeks and for many, several months", it goes onto say at least 3 months to return to previous levels of activity. I feel a bit of a fraud as it is exactly 3 YEARS to the day since my embolization and am in no way recovered. It gives people the wrong impression when they read this or similar which gives rise to comments "Come on you should be better now now its been 3 years!!), if only it was true. I can see from many on this website that recovery is of a much longer duration. If you tell people how you feel you are classed as a "moaner" and I said previously programmes like Emmerdale don't help. I found Lesley Foulkes booklet very helpful as I was told very little on being discharged from hospital but I think the "recovery period" is open to dispute.
