Thank you for posting your query.
First of all, we need some clarifications and little more data for us to give a good second opinion.

Why is morphine used for this heart patient? Morphine is not indicated in any heart patient. Some heart patients may require wayfarin to keep the blood thin and prevent clotting. Do you mean warfarin or morphine?

Second, we need to see the scan reports of brain and neck. If possible, please upload them.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
