Bleeding ear, tired. Have stent in heart, high blood pressure, low heart rate. Something to be concerned about?

My dad recently had a stint put in his heart and has had high blood pressure and a very low heart rate since being put on medication . The doctors are still trying to figure out the combination that works best for him. Tonight however his ear started bleeding and he has been really tired all day. Pretty much sitting in his recliner most of the day. Is the bleeding ear something to be concerned about?

Cardiologist 's  Response
yes bleeding from ear should not be neglected ,
as your father underwent stent procedure recently means he will be on blood thinner medicine , blood thinner medicine is required to prevent clot formation in stent ,
but it will cause more bleeding,
your father may required CT Scan Brain also to check any internal bleeding ,

i adviesd to consult your cardiologist earliest and follow his advice ,
take care
