My father, who is 58 years old, having diabetes for the last 23 years. He always takes Insulin and other sugar tablets. His weight is 67 kg and height is 5'5". For the last two months, he has been taking Aspirin 75 mg. He had a minor headache for the last few days. Also, he had a cold and cough and took Azithromycin. Six days back, some blood came out through cough and he was advised to stop Aspirin. So, he did not take Aspirin for the last five days. Yesterday, he felt nauseous and vomited continuously. He had blurred vision, felt an imbalance while standing and had severe headaches. Then, he had a CT scan and a subdural blood clot was found. CT scan report summary NCCT of the brain suggests subacute on chronic subdural hemorrhage in right cerebral convexity with mass effect. So, our neurosurgeon suggests for operation, but due to Aspirin he kept the operation on hold for four to five days. But, my father is still unconscious. He is in ICU and under observation. But, in this condition, is it right decision to keep the operation on hold? In this condition, can we move the patient by flight to another place for better treatment?
