Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
Avatar n tn He was doing well in rehab and then had carotid surgery 9/6/07. After surgery he was sedated for two weeks and developed double pneumonia. He was taken off sedation 9/20/07 but is unresponsive to commands. He was given a CT scan and it showed there was no new stroke. What could be the cause of the unresponsiveness?
Avatar n tn I am attending a specialised stroke clinic tomorrow and seing a consultant neurologist, however I feel that when other causes of the stroke are explored it will probably be diagnosed as being caused as you say by the bone spur. I have researched the surgery proceedure so am prepared should it be neccessary.

Avatar n tn Heart Disease This is a difficult question for me to answer over the internet. There are many possible causes and stroke is one of them. I would recommend making an appointment with a neurologist to have him completely checked over and treated as needed. Information provided here is for education only.

Avatar n tn Disc degenerative diseases that cause nerve root pressure or damage, pressure on the spinal cord/pressure on the tail bone are frequent causes of fecal incontinence. Other causes could be chronic laxative use, chronic constipation, recent bowel surgery, decreased awareness rectal fullness or need to defecate, severe hemorrhoids, stress and even emotional problems (so, this is a possibility in your case).

I went to the dr. last week 11-13-07 they said the surgery seema to be healing fine but I might possibly have an infection in the semen tract idabidamitis (sic), they had me give them a urine sample to see if there is any infection.

Avatar n tn There is for this reason a much higher rate of neurological complications with this kind of surgery, but this is acceptable because the risk of death from the surgery is so high. It may be that they gave him so much sedation over the last two days that it is going to take him several more days to recover his bearings. This is usually seen in the elderly who may be slow metabolizers of sedatives.

Avatar m tn t recovering, he was scanned again and we were told that plaque had broken loose during surgery and had caused him to have a stroke. If they were able to determine that it was a stroke when we visited him two hours after surgery and had to ride the nurse to get answers, could clot busters have been used in hopes of breaking up the clot within the 3 hour window of a stroke.
Avatar m tn s unfortunate experience. Sometimes unexpected things happen during surgery, and this may be one of them. From what you say, your father's brain did not get enough oxygen for 3-5 minutes. This can cause some brain damage just the way a stroke does, and sometimes, stroke victims experience something called "Pseudobulbar affect," a condition which causes extreme emotional responses to things that are usually just normal stuff.
