Posted by looking forward to the future (as ),
On 29th March 2015 I was transferred to The Western General from The Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy suffering from a severe headache and going in and out of consciousness. I have very little recollection of the first week, or the 3 operations I went through when I was in High Dependency Unit but my family inform me that the staff could not have been more attentive towards me and informative towards them. I was later transferred onto a ward where I received encouragement and praise for gaining my independence back. It was a slow recovery once home but I did return to work after 3 1/2 months. In the November, after a follow up MRA scan they discovered that the Aneurysm was growing again and needed to operate again. the surgeon was attentive and gave me ample information regarding possible outcomes for the operation. I received this operation on the 6 January of this year. Due to being nervous and scared the staff reassured my fears and again supported me through this time. I am now back at work full time with the same quality of life I had on 28 March 2015 before this all happened. My family and I are extremely grateful to the surgical team and all the staff who looked after me at The Western.
