Stroke during heart surgery
my uncle had a heart surgery 5 days ago and still didn't wake up;
first 2 days, we would tell him to move his leg, and he actually did, now nothing.
today, (6th day), doctors discovered a stroke, after thinking that his elevated creatine was the cause he was still under the effect of anesthesia. They discovered the stroke in his brain, so far they said it's hemorrhagic. They can't give an answer of what will happen next, they said they will wait until he wakes up; anyone has any information about this ?

Hi,
How is your uncle?  A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in part of the brain becomes weak and bursts open, causing blood to leak into the brain. Because there was an open heart surgery done and he was still  under observation during the diagnosis of stroke, it is difficult to conduct a clinical  evaluation. Laboratory tests may help but treatment  usually depends on how severe the stroke was and what caused it.  Medications such as blood thinners may also help as well as seeking another neurologist's opinion may be indicated.  Take care and do keep us posted.
