Suggest treatment for head trauma

hi i had a head trauma in two places from falling on ice and hitting my head on a pole, one caused a small fracture and minor bleeding in my brain, and another on the top of my head had no fracture but a lot of intracranial bleeding and my brain had a lot of pressure, after two weeks a mri and ct scan showed that the pressure was going away as was the blood, are there any really bad effects from trying to fly 12 hours two months after it happened except the pain?

Hi,

I have noted the clinical details. It is safe for you to fly 12 hours, 2 months after the head injury.

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

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
