rince Posted January 17, 2009 Share Posted January 17, 2009 Right if I'm going to crack on with this (The after care - awareness project) I need some help with the questions to put both on it and also to ask. I'm going to update this post with topics and questions that you suggest in this thread. 1. DVLA - What do I need to do? You are legally obliged to inform the DVLA and return your license 2. Coiling - MRI safe? Yes 3. Clipping - MRI safe? Depends on the type of clip used. Ask your neurologist. 4. Recovery - What can I expect? There is a huge range of what to expect, and you will fall somewhere within this. Although you maybe expected to make a "full" recovery this may not mean you will be able to go back to the life style you had before SAH. Some people will not be able to return to work at all whereas some will make a return within the three month period. So you can see there is a wide spread of what could happen it is very much down to your individual circumstances. You have had a life changing experience so it is a realistic expectation that your life will change. Questions to ask my own doctor or neurologist. waiting for your ideas Symptons Long term effects include: Dizzyness Physical disability such as limb weakness. Impaired or double vision. Personality changes such as increased irritability or disinhibition. Memory problems. This is to give you an idea of what I think, it may very well not in the end be anything like this! I want this to be led by us rather than by any health care professional, we are after all I feel best placed to comment on what life is like post SAH. That's not to say that I don't want input from medical professionals, I intend to approach my own neurologist and SAH specialist nurse to get advice. Thanks in advance!
