Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My mom has a brain hemorrhage. She has been unconscious. It has been two days since she is in ICU (Intensive Care Unit) with artificial oxygen. Can you please comment more on this?

Hello, Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the report (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Your mother has pose a danger on the left side of the brain in a very critical area. The most common cause of this bleed is high blood pressure. In such a situation, patients take a long time to recover. The fact that the bleed is on the left side puts her at high risk of residual disability such as speech disturbance, memory disturbance even if she regains consciousness. The bleed is pretty bad and causing increased pressure within the skull which might pose danger to the remaining normal functioning brain. In such a situation, a decompressive craniotomy surgery may also be required. In the long term, she will take a long time to recoverwhich can be up to six months. Whether and when she will regain consciousness, cannot be accurately predicted and depends a lot on her neurological status and co-morbid conditions such as control of diabetes, hypertension and heart disease if any.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
