Neurologist 's  Response

Thank you for posting your query.

From now on, the treatment would be mainly physiotherapy and good nursing care.

The role of medications is to keep her BP under control (high BP was the most likely reason for her brain hemorrhage).

Care should be taken regarding her feeding also.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
Senior Consultant Neurologist
