Thank you for posting your query.
Your mother has two types of problems in the brain- the first is a hematoma
(bleeding), which is often due to high blood pressure
. So, her BP needs to be kept under good control to prevent any recurrence of bleeding in the brain.
Second problem is the ischemia- lack of blood flow to the brain. This is often due to high sugar, cholesterol
, in addition to high BP
. So, if these risk factors are present, then, they need to be controlled.
Also, in addition to statins, an anti-platelet such as aspirin
needs to be started to prevent further strokes and decline in cognition.
I hope it helps.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
