Adam Mac Posted April 19, 2021 Share Posted April 19, 2021 Hi my name is Adam I’m so glad I have found this page, reading topics and testimonials from people has really helped give me an insight to what has happened to me! I’m a 37 year old male from the Midlands in the UK On Monday 29th March whilst on the toilet I had the most horrendous headache and later on was extremely sick, I went to my local hospital where I had 2 CT scans and these showed I had a bleed on my brain. From there I was then taken in an ambulance to University Hospital Coventry, not knowing what was going on or what was going to happen to me! After having a cerebral angiogram no aneurysm was found and I was diagnosed with a Perimesencephalic Subarachnoid Haemorrhage The hospital staff were amazing with me, it was difficult though for obvious reasons (not knowing what was happening, what was wrong with me, am I going to see my wife and kids again etc) but made even more difficult being on my own and not having any family members to support me due to COVID! I was told on discharge that recovery can take 6-8 weeks and that mine was ‘one of the good ones’ ?! I’m on my 4th week now and I feel active enough for walks but I do have periods of tiredness and I just feel like I want to lie down. Also I do have panic/anxiety moments thinking is this going to happen again or am I going to get worse?! I know that everyone’s case is different and recovery etc is different for each person but I was wondering if anyone here had the same diagnosis as me and what their recovery was like? Thanks for taking time to read my story and as I said before I’m so glad to have found this group! Take care and stay safe Adam 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
