Hi

Its is very early days for your wife but she will improve albeit not as quick as she would like I'm sure, I'm almost a year on and still have weak legs although better than before, my memory has improved. Everyone recovers differently all say is to take one day at a time and be patient.

Regards

Caroline

Hi Rod :D

As the others have said...it is very early days......i was exactly the same....i am now 16 months on and still have short term memory but it is improving, if tired or stressed can get the tremors, i had therapy to help with the weakness in my legs which helped.......my main problem is blurry vision, balance and confidence......it effects both physically and emotionally. Things will improve....it just takes time... Keep positive :D You have come to the right place though :D:D ....BTG has been a life line to me and have made some wonderful friends.......thinking of you both....take care, Love Tina xx

Hi and welcome. As you will find your way around this site you will find a wealth of information. My mum had her SAH one year ago which was coiled and she is doing remarkably well. Everyone is different so just try to take each day at a time and don't worry to much if she gets a good day followed by a few bad, this seems very common. A lot of problems seem to gradaully improve but the few you have mentioned are very common ones especially the memory - I'm afraid mum has lost her memory big time.(short term), There will be lots of ups and downs but your wife has survived which is a very big step. Everyone on this site sems to have had lots of different problems but they have got throught them. I wish your wife a good recovery and make sure you look after yourself too.

Hi Rod,

Welcome to BTG, you will get lots of information and support here :D

It is early days for your wife, I'm 2 1/2 years on and still suffer from lots of headaches, tiredness, dizziness and weak legs especially if tired or headachey.

Can you tell us a bit more about your wife- name, age etc we are a nosey bunch :lol:

It does get easier but it is a real rollercoaster ride even 2 1/2 years on. There are people on here that had SAH's long before mine and they still say its a rollercoaster!

Stay positive

Love and hugs

Laura
