Hello,

So sad to listen to such a bad state of your friend. Well as you are telling that brain in the neck, it is called medically as herniation of brain. It shows the impacts over the head were very severe. The prognosis in your friend case is very very poor. I'm so sorry to say this that the chances for your friend to come out from such a very serious critical state are very very less (0.00001%).


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Abdullah

My doc told me that I m having Intestinal pseudoobstruction & advised using enema fleet once every 3-4days. Btw, I m a tetraplegia due to spinal cord injury 14yrs ago & underwent a sub-total colostomy a year ago. Before the intestinal operation, I had to use suppositories every day over the 13years. After the intestinal operation, my bowel movement was like 3 to 4 times a day which I had no control over it. And now no bowel movement without enema fleet. My question is, is it ok for my body in the long run if I clear my bowel movement once every 3 to 4 days? Is it better for my body if I were to clear my bowel movement daily using suppositories (Like in the past)?
