Super Mario Posted February 8, 2009 Share Posted February 8, 2009 Hi I'm Penny and found this site a few weeks ago after searching for the last few years for info. I had a SAH in Feb 2004. I was hit on the head by a ball of ice and it is suspected that this caused the aneurism, that I knew nothing about, to rupture. It has transpired that I have one at the other side as well but that is being left alone because as my neurosurgeon said it has an overflow i.e. another vessel going off it. He actually said it is a bizarre arrangement. I haven't had the other one checked since but I don't let it worry me and just continue to get on with life. I developed hydrocephalus and have a shunt fitted. I don't know whether it was that or the SAH that did the damage that has caused me to have quite severe balance problems, so much so that I have to use a triwalker. I haven't worked from that day to this but I do some voluntary work and keep myself busy. I love travelling and have travelled alone for years. This hasn't stopped me doing as much as I can afford, still on my own. I now live by my motto of Take each day as it comes, enjoy it to the best of my ability, blow tomorrow, it may never happen. As I have found out the hard way you don't know what is round the corner, there is more to life than work and more work. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
