Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My mother, who is 65 years old, had a brain stroke. Could you help us with the treatment? I have attached the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) report for your information.

Welcome to icliniq.com. By looking at the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) report (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it seems that the patient had left PCA territory stroke (posterior cerebral artery). The treatment of stroke cannot be dictated just by seeing the MRI report. The doctor needs to see the patient clinically and assess her completely. Also, we need to do many investigations for searching possible causes of stroke and avoiding the complications. If it is an acute stroke, then I suggest you get her admitted to the hospital. If it is either second or third stroke attack, then send all the reports and hospital summary for better understanding and judgment. She will require life-long blood thinner medicines. But, the exact dose and medicines can only be suggested after a complete assessment of the patient.

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