Brain hemorrhage

Questions and answers on "Brain hemorrhage"

Good Evening Doctor!

My mother aged 53 years suffered from brain hemorrhage on 21st Feb 2014 after she has developed a clot in brain in 2009. She was paralyzed from Sept 2009 and was stable during this period. Now she has a brain hemorrhage between forebrain and midbrain region and the size is round 2-3 cm in dia. She is in ICU from 21st Feb. I would like to know what is the time frame required for these type of patients for discharge and what are the chances of recovery i.e. partial?

I am afraid this is a difficult answer for any doctor. It is hard to make predictions for any stroke without knowing the exact location and the neural pathways it has affected. In your mother's case it is even harder since she's had...

Hi my friend suffers from brain hemorrhage since yesterday morning. He had severe headache followed by water flowing from his eyes & then vomiting. He got unconscious after that. He is in coma since 36 hours. Please tell what are his chances of recovery.

Dear Sir or Madam: Six years ago, my chronic constipation, which had been an issue for years, became my smallest health problem after an AVM on my brain ruptured during a workout, causing a large, brain hemorrhage. After surviving an emergency crainiotomy, my stomach problems became worse as the required bed rest slowed my bowel function. It was at this point that the muscles in my face, hands, and feet began to wither. More recently, this muscle deterioration has become generalized to the point where my elbows, my knees, and my spine all protrude now. As time goes by, it is become increasingly difficult to keep my body warm. The cold lingers on my body. Having consulted several gastroenterologists, neurologists, and a rheumotologist and having undergone multiple internal investigations, including a full-body MRI, it seems that no one has an explanation for my withering muscles or deteriorating health. Interestingly, despite their obvious deterioration, my muscles remain strong; my blood-work is normal; and my eyes are bright. On the other hand, the deterioration in my shin muscles is making walking more difficult. Plainly, any advice you have would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your assistance.

It is humbly questioned that my mother had a brain hemorrhage on 7th of Sept., 2012 and the type of hemorrhage was Intracranial. Now she has gained her conscious level but the problem is that she has not got physical power although continous physiotherapy is provided. Means hemorrhage got Healed but paralysis isnt cured yet. Is there any drug and diet plan that can help her in this regard? She can t chew solid things because a lot of power is required in doing so, which she don t have. Secondly is there any herbal oil for massage therapy? Which can help in strengthening muscular/physical power? Thirdly in such patients is electrical therapy advised?
