Hemorrhagic stroke

Hi,my 57 year old mother suffered a hemorrhagic stroke,she was pretty healty before this,but she does smoke.The doc said it was 4 cm and it was on her left side,her vision is affected and her capability to read.
She was in the hospital 5 days,her blood pressure,blood work,everything looks good which is very weird!Other then that she was conscious all the time,no memory loss or anything like that.
My question is why the docs didn't give her any medication while in the hospital or after?
Thank you

Hi, for haemorrhagic strokes, the focus is on controlling the bleeding and reducing the pressure on the brain. Sometimes surgical interventions may be needed to control the bleeding. And also controlling high risk factors like diabetes and hypertension. Depending on the area of brain affected she would have manifested the symptoms. With control of high risk factors and rehabilitation, she is likely to improve. Good luck with her recovery. Regards.
