What causes unconsciousness despite discontinuing sedatives after surgeries for brain hemorrhage?
More information about MRI and hemorrhage location needed.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your query and understand your concerns.
Spots on critical areas found on brain MRI, could be ischemic strokes that may be caused by embolism or cerebral vasospasms.
First, I need to ask you some questions about the nature and localization of the hemorrhage that was treated surgically.
Also I need to examine the MRI report, if you will upload it.
After this additional information, we can have a better understanding of your father's actual condition and expectations.
Awaiting for more information.....
Intensive therapy should be continued.
In this case then, probably lesions are located at brainstem ( this is one of the most critical areas ), and probably are ischemic due to previous compression by hemorrhage mass effect and surrounding edema.
Since there are movements, it is a good thing.
However it will take time for permanent damages to be evident, so, in this moment we can't be sure about the degree of the damage and the recovery degree.
In this situation intensive therapy to maintain normal oxygen levels, control of blood pressure, preventing infections and treatment of brain swelling should be continued.
Hope I helped you.
Wishing a good recovery to your father.
It is too early to be sure about progression, however, being independent from artificial respiration is a considerable step towards improvement.
Again, it is very important for me to have more information about MRI findings.
