I had a fall 4 months ago and was in hostital for a week under a Neurosurgeon. I took painkillers for only a week and feel fine apart from diminished vision in left eye and slight numbness in left hand finger tips. I am attending Neurosurgeon and will have MRI in October. My Neurosurgeon said that all details below are consistent with SAH however, doesn't know what to make of the "superficial fat collection which extends into the right parafalcine as well as into the left parafalcine location".
Any ideas - please see CT scan findings below.
