How is your father? Symptoms of brain bleed or intracerebral hemorrhage vary depending on the location of the bleed and the amount of brain tissue affected. Symptoms may include: change in alertness, difficulty speaking or understanding speech, headache, loss of coordination or balance, difficulty moving any body part, seizure, vision and sensation changes. Surgery is done to repair or remove structures causing the bleed. How well a patient does depends on the size of the hematoma and the amount of swelling. There may be a complete recovery, or some permanent loss of brain function. Talk to your doctor about this for proper management. Take care and best regards.
father had a brain bleed on may 5,2014 did surgery removed bleed and right bone flap, does not open eyes on command or any other voice commands. does open eyes sometimes, for VERY short period of time, has very good movement on the right side but no movement on left side. dr. said he had seizuers, they now treat with medication. no seizures are present. will dad "wake up" more as time goes on? or will he stay like that?
How is your father doing?
My mother had the same brain bleed (stroke like symptoms affected her speech & not using her right arm) but we elected instead of surgery to take her off Warfarin (which was thinning the blood) and let the body reabsorb the blood back into the body. She is very sleepy/doppy acting.. we thing because they put her on anti-seizure drug. Doesn't talk much & was eating with her eyes closed. We convinced our doctor to take he off this drug since she never had a history of seizures & we think this was causing the sleepiness. She's doing better after 24hrs of no anti-seizure drug... eyes open more, talking & more alert but still not back to normal. Our insurance company is trying to stop paying for her rehab now but we are trying to appeal their decision since we feel this drug has slowed down her rehab progress.
Did your father get much better after his operation?
Did they put him on an anti-seizure drug?
How long did Medicare pay for his rehab?
Is he able to be back home or is he now in a nursing home?
