My husband had a 99% blockage in the right carotid artery. He is now one week post surgery for this. He continues to experience headaches, and is exhibiting very angry behavior. About 24 hours after surgery he had a CAT scan which was normal. Is this behavior normal after carotid artery surgery?
he is on dilantin and nexium. i can't get his hard head to go back to the DR. he went a couple months ago and they said eveything was normal but he's having some issues and i wonder if it might be related to lowering his dose. not sleeping, nerves bad, sometimes it's like his mind is just scattered and not concentrating on any one thing
