Thank you for posting your query.
Based on your description, you seem to have suffered brain strokes. In addition, there is blockage of blood supply in both carotid arteries. The initial treatment is with medications such as aspirin
and statins. Aspirin is a blood thinner, and may be responsible for nose bleeds.
For carotid block (stenosis), there are two possible treatments. One is stenting done by interventional radiologist
, and the other is surgery called as endarterectomy
. Both the procedures are safe and the complication rate is less than 5% in the hands on experienced doctors.
I hope it helps.
