Hello everyone....First of all I appreciate the efforts put by all of you to help and support others....keep doing the good work and please welcome me in your family....

Now my case....

My mother had a SAH 6 days ago....on the 29th of january....When SAH hit her head she lost conciousness initially but on the 30th she regained it...we were happy.......But our hapiness didn't long more than a day.....On the 31st of january she had a re-bleeding.....and she went into deep coma.....also her breathing stopped immediately(Apnea)......she is now on respirator.....her blood circulation is also disturbed....we are controlling it with the help of medicines.....I m very desperate.....doctors say that the prognosis is poor but I believe that she will be alright one day....I need help, advice n support from you people....If a Neurosurgeon is reading this post, plz tell me what do you think abt my case...what is the prognosis??

Eager to hear from you ppl

Hi Kaantay

A warm welcome to BTG.

I am sorry to hear about your mother, I hope and pray for her recovery.

It's hard to make any prognosis as we are not medical qualified but we are here for you for support and other advice.

Let us know how she is getting along and wish her a quick recovery.

hi kaantay

welcome to btg im sorry to hear about mum and what you are going through i am in the same situation but seven months down the line with the same prognoisise the brain is a very complex organ and has suffered a massive injury and it could take up to a month or so before the pressure reduces before mum settles all i could do was hold her hand and talk to her moving her fingers and hand to let her know i was there you can only talk to the consultant who is dealing with mum but if you feel mum might pull through then support her with talking and touching her thats all that kept me sane behind the grey kept me sane and allowed me to rant and rave when i found it hard going

i found it better as i kept a diary which i filled in daily what she was going through and what was going on in the outside world so that down the line she could read it or have it read to her if she is unable to read it im stilll keeping it up to date and im now into the second volume all you can do at this difficult time is to hold hands talk to her as the hearing is normally the last thing to shut down so you might be able to get through you say that you think mum will pull through your faith will guide you but please be aware that mum might decide she's to tired but if you talk to her and touch her it might get through it is a very very difficult time because we or you have no control its all down to mum and the dr who are supporting her and until the brain pressure starts to reduce noone will know whats going to happen think of nice times with mum the funnier the better and describe them to her and in time you might get a response but in all honesty it is very very early days i didnt get to see any improvement in lin for over a month you didnt say where you were in the country but as you say you are not going to give up and quite rightly but there is that horrible spectre hanging but by supporting mum talking and touching is all anyone can do untill the swelling goes down btg are a fantastic group they are surviors and carers of sah who care for people like us and offer there hands and thoughts and advice even though its not medical they have been through what we are going through we can rant and rave its twentyfour hours opening time and believe me it helps my thoughts are with you and my heart goes out to you at this difficult time you can pm me anytime but everyone on here will be praying for you to give you strenght to help you through this nightmare because thy have been through it before take care hugs and cuddles

Sorry to hear about your mum, I went through the same with my mum 7 months ago - they told me at the time that mum had a very poor chance of survival but she is a marvel now, has gone back to her own home and lives alone. She has done very well as have all the others on this amazing site. The road is a very rocky one for a very long time with lots of ups and downs - 2 days following rarely being the same. My mum's name is Maggie and you can follow her story on this site. As Paul so rightly said the brain is a very complex thing and everyones recovery is different. I have read lots and lots up about SAH and I gather that in the first few days after a blled it is common to get a further bleed - I think they call them vasospasms. If you have access to the internet it offers lots of information or if you get a chance make an appointment with your mum's Neurosurgeon with a list of questions. My mum was in Intensive care unconscious pretty much for the first 2 weeks, just keep talking and holding her hand even though she may appear to be asleep (they probably have her heavy on sedation too). Keep in touch and my advice to you is just take each day as it comes and don't get too down if one day she seems a bit better and the next she does not; it seems to be part and parcel of the illness.

I also kept a diary and just kept asking the nurses question after question, look after yourself too. Hope to hear about your mum again soon.

Hey there

Welcome to the site - you'll find lots of support and friendly people here.

So sorry to hear about your mum- I know it must be very hard for you right now. Like the others have said we can't offer medical advice only personal experience - which sometimes counts for more.

Stay positive and let your mum know that you're there - hold her hand, talk to her, tell about this horrible weather - anything so that she might be able to hear you're there.

Take care of yourself too - drop in anytime for advice or just someone to talk to.

Love Sami xxx
