We perform radiation hydrodynamic simulations to study how very massive stars recover from giant eruptions. The post eruption star experience strong mass loss due to strong winds, driven by radial pulsations in the star's interior, that operate by the κ-mechanism. The mass loss history obtained in our simulations resembles η Car's history.
