Brief Answer:
You can take bath

Detailed Answer:
Hi Jxxxxxxxxx, thanks for asking from HCM.

I can understand your concern. The cerebral artery dissection and cerebellar stroke occurred in October. Almost 2 months have passed since then. You can take bath without problem.

One thing keep in mind, avoid vigorous neck movement for at least 4 more months. Vigorous neck movements can cause arterial dissection.

Hope it will help you. If you any doubts, do let me know.
Thanks. Take care.

10 year old boy mri results 1) impression: There is a prominent fluid signal intensity collection in the midline posterior fossa behind the vermis.

There is a mild amount of mucosal thickening in the posterior left ethmoid air cells. What does all this mean?
