I had my SAH 2 yrs ago. It left me in a wheelchair but other than that I am pretty much as I was before. I've just had my peg removed which I had used for medication initially but I am noe able to eat as normal.

I am left side parlysed but even now I am seeing sl improvement. I find I am very curious about what happened to me. It seems to help my recovery to understand, is this normal?

Hi I had a ruptured aneurysm in May of this year which led to a sub arachnoid haemorrhage. Had surgery, spent a month in hospital. Now home and very lucky to be alive with no major deficits. The usual tiredness, STM problems, concentration, balance etc.

Welcome and good luck with your recovery.

Welcome Scott. If you're looking for support/reassurance you've come to a good place.

I had a Subarachnoid haemorrhage 2&1/2 years ago followed by the coiling procedure and feel (as most others on here do) grateful to the surgeon and others who saved my life.

I'm left with poor short-term memory, fatigue, headaches and some mobility/balance issues which are all typical after effects of a brain injury. I think most of us on Headway agree on the issue of poor or none-existent NHS aftercare, but we're all here for each other and the Headway team are available for further help & guidance if needed.

Hope to hear more from you about your situation & level of recovery.

Regards Cat x

Hi Scott, I've just found this website and feel relieved to know it exists. I had an aneurysm 11 yrs ago now and thank god every day for my life. I had to have major surgery due to where it was and struggled for the first year coming to terms with the changes it made to my life.

The Drs and surgeons were brilliant while I was in hospital but I have to say that aftercare was non existent. I'm fortunate to have a strong character with a positive attitude to life which I think helps immensely, but not everyone has that I'm afraid, so this website is a godsend for advice and support.

Don't hesitate to ask me or anyone else on here for reassurance as we're only too happy to help

Take care Jan

Hi Jan. I've just gone on this site and read your message. I am in my 8th week after my brain surgery for clipping my aneurysm. Feeling that no medical or community support or advice is available and often feeling very emotionally low, tired, and brain not working properly most days when I'm stressed. I struggle getting my thoughts conveyed properly when I speak and sometimes it takes me ages to say something. How are you now?

I am new. I have all the signs and symptoms of and aneurysm but all my tests were negative (CT, blood work, MRI, lumbar puncture). My head is killing me. I can't bend over, bear down, cough or talk loudly without pain and pressure in my head. Any ideas? thanks!
